After deinstall it's still working, cant't stop it
By , for WP 3.9.1

It's still breaking other Tracking code i.e. Tag Manager.

Warning - adds it's own analytics code to your site by default
By , for WP 3.9.1

We assumed this was just bringing reporting into the WordPress CMS, and already had GA code in our header. However this plugin once installed adds it's own tracking code by default. You can turn this off, but it is not clear, and double analytics code on your site makes certain stats (bounce rate, time on page, number of page views, etc) seem unrealistically positive.

Other than this oversight - it's great and very useful.

No Universal Analytics Update
By , for WP 3.9.1

I really loved this plugin. Apparently it takes care of major Google analytics tweaks. I used this plugin in my blog for couple of years.

But the the only problem with this plugin is : UPDATES, yup! it gets New Google analytics updates very later stage such as Universal Analytics Update. After release Yoast SEO plugins still haven't updated with UA not even remarketing facility.

Yes, I know this plugin is free but who doesn't loves to stay updated. I think unlike me many are also waiting for the update.

Special plugin !

Could NEVER Get to Authenticate
By , for WP 3.9.1

Could never get it to work. Spent a lot of time trying to get it to authenticate. Continued to get an error message. Big ADS from developer, Yoast advertising they could take this aggravation away for $179 were agitating. Don't waste your time. Disappointing.

Best GA plugin

Best GA plugin ever very easy to use.

Code in dire need of update
By , for WP 3.9.1

This plug-in is great but Google Analytics is adding enhancements faster than the developers can cope with. The new Universal analytics javascript library and the demographic settings does not seem to be supported in the existing code. I had to hack the plug-in and add the code manually, which pretty much defeats the use of the plug-in. :\
