Works fine

I mostly use Metrica to make Yandex Search index my pages faster. Just installed this plugin and pasted my counter code, now I’m able to track the traffic. Thanks for developing this.


Удобно подключается к API метрики. Строит графики прямо в админке.
Ещё бы с целями и конверсиями работал…
