Simple and effective
By , for WP 4.0

Simple and effective plugin to get the Google Analytics code to work within the WordPress website.

Hope to see some additional functions in the future, like:

  • Working dashboard with correctly working statistics
  • Statistics per post to get indept stats
  • Integration with WordPress SEO to get suggestions for specific search terms to be used in post
  • Better support for i18n languages. As the current version does not support the Dutch language
Amazing

And now supports Universal Analytics, even better!

Great plugin. Requires very little configuration and it just works. Outbound link tracking works well and provides very valuable data.

Must be update

The plugin works flawlessly, super simple to install and use. i only wish all WordPress plugins would be implemented as great. Nice work!

Sporadically Intuitive, Not Kept Current

Likes:
The SEO red, yellow, green on posts.

Dislikes:
So many pages, so little clarity. Yoast needs a writer and UX Designer.
No modeling of how things should be done, just - hey here is a random form field to enter something into.

Problems:
XML Sitemap issues - major problems here.
Does not work with Demographics and Interest Reports for Google Analytics - you can't update your GA code to get the benefit of this. There is a "fix" that I found, but it does not work.

Does the job

Use this plugin on a couple wordpress sites. The only issue I have, is no support for Universal Analytics; I've read it's in the works, but I feel at this point, it should be an option for those of us who want to use it.

Great

Very easy to use

I tried a few of these "simple" plugins for Google analytics. This one is by far the easiest to use and edit. Just type in the UA code and that's it. Thanks so much for putting this plugin out.
