Broken and no longer supported by author
By , for WP 4.5.3

This was a simple to use plugin... maybe one of the best. Now its a pile of garbage.

A quick look at the support threads will show you that the author has moved on. Take my advice and find something else.

PIECE OF CRAP
By , for WP 4.4.1

Simply will not connect with Google. Most user unfriendly piece of software I have used. Uninstalled and installed again. Hate Google. Hate the analyticator. Very frustrating experience overall.

Inserts ads into the WordPress Admin menu
By , for WP 4.4.1

Sleazy or just desperate? - a menu item leading to a screen full of advertising for the developer's other plugins, plus this offer begging for your e-mail address:

Too intrusive
By ,

This was a useful plugin for a long time, but the focus switched to strongly to commercialisation. GADWP has better functionality and isn't intrusive.

crap
By , for WP 4.3.1

started nagging about needing pro version, demanded access to my google account, fuck that, uninstall

Died on me for no reason at all.
By , for WP 4.3.1

Very disappointed with this plugin. The plugin decided to die two months ago and i lost all my analytics :(

I upgraded the plugin to the latest version and it didn't fix the problem.

The problem is that it is not picking up my Google ID.

This is the error msg:
There was an Analytics API service error 403: Error calling GET https://www.googleapis.com/analytics/v3/management/accounts/%7Eall/webproperties:

I cannot insert my Google ID.

I found online and it appeared this problem occured two years ago (bc the their Google API hit the limit of 50,000). I don't know if it is the same problem but no time to figure it out. I am going to use another plugin.

Latest update breaks tracking
By , for WP 4.3.1

I've been using Google Analyticator for years on a couple sites just because it seemed cool to add it directly through the CMS. The latest update, sadly, breaks. My first experience was after clicking update to 6.4.9.6. When I clicked on Settings, it went to a page that said "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page." I disabled it.

In a brand new site, I figured I'd try the latest update to see if it would work. I ran it for a full day and no traffic data, kept checking settings, everything seemed OK. Again I had to disable the plug-in.

The reality is, Google Analytics is a much safer way to go and has a few different methods of incorporating the tracking code depending on your needs, including the new Google Tag Manager.

For those of you who don't use FTP, just get your Tracking Code from Google Analytics, go to the Editor in WordPress, find header.php, and paste right before the closing </head> tag. (This is where Google suggests putting it, not the footer, but that's another story.)
