Simple and clean Google Analytics
By Plugin Author, for WP 4.2.2

Works super clean.

Connects directly through Google Analytics and then I can easily see my stats in my dashboard.

Needs work / attention
By , for WP 4.2.1

I manage 50+ WordPress sites every month, and run lots of marketing campaigns on them. I'm perfectly happy to pay for a pro plugin if it means I get a pro product.

This looked like the right tool to use for a handful of current projects, plus more in the future.

I pulled my wallet out and headed over to http://www.analyticatorpro.com/ to buy the pro plugin.

First impressions:
- Slides were being cropped
- Typos on the page ("Lean more" instead of "Learn more")
- No support forum
- No contact page
- Circular links on the feature blurbs (ie all four selling point icons just link back to the homepage. Why make them links?!)
... Ok... confidence rapidly evaporating... now the deal breaker:
- Of the two links to the pro plugin, the one that didn't just link back to the homepage went to a 404 error (http://www.analyticatorpro.com/pro/)

I appreciate that things might be running on a lean budget, but I couldn't even find a way to let you know discretely (ie a contact page). So here I am publishing this on a support thread instead.

When I came to the support forum here, I saw "1 of 12 support threads resolved in the last two months".

Sad face.

This kind of plugin attracts serious businesses with serious budgets. You could be making good coin from this. But the wallet is now back in my pocket.

If you've moved on to other projects, then make it known so we can look elsewhere.

Good luck getting some of this worked out.

Simple and effective

The data showed is perfect, short and right to the point, with this you get the picture of what's happening on your website.

This is the best plugin of traffic stats that I found to replace JetPack Site Stats (The best IMPO but I don't want to have and link WP.com account). I try kStats Reloaded, WassUp Real Time Analytics, Analytics 360, WP-Stats-Dashboard, StatPress Reloaded are behind this plugin for the propose of short, simple and clear traffic stats.

The only thing that I think is a really big issue and piss me off is that the plugin doesn't have his own page, is only a little widget on the WP dashboard. That's sucks man. Should have his own page, all this info need more space to be showed. Hope an update with this soon.

Its simple, but thats what I and clients need.

It's nice to have data direct in WP dashboard.

caused "Error establishing a database connection"
By , for WP 4.0.1

This plugin broke my website and caused by causing the following error: "Error establishing a database connection."

I installed Google Analyticator and activated it yesterday. This morning when I went to my website, it was down and I received this error message. When I searched for this error on my host's troubleshooting section, and it said it's often caused by 3rd party software. The only thing I had changed recently was adding this plugin. I deleted the plugin from my cPanel, and the error stopped and functionality was restored to my website.

Easy to use, nice features
By ,

I was looking for a tool to easily set up Google Analytics for my own website and a website of a client. For both, this plugin works like a charm. Easy to set up, yet with clever functionality like you can hide your credentials on a client web site. I also like the dashboard widget that shows you instantly statistics for the last month.

Works well for me - simple and effective
By , for WP 3.9.2

This has worked fine on many sites for me, just to let the client see a quick example of how many hits their site is getting -- in the Dashboard.

Good Plugin
By , for WP 4.0

Highly appreciate the hard work behind this plugin. Works great for me. A must-have really.

Nice GA overview in your dashboard
By ,

The simplicity of this plugin is appreciated, as well as the offering of a few advanced features. I use it as a quick way to get GA installed and also to block tracking of myself.

It's also great to have tracking enabled on outbound links, and the option of inputting file extensions to track as downloads.

Works Well

Doesn't give comprehensive stats, login to analytics to get those.

Does get content managers and site owners excited about tracking their traffic.

Installs without a hitch.

Login to Google and create an anlytics account for the domain first.
