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. :\

Does The Job well

Works great. Using with Genesis and SEO Premium. Gotta love the Yoast boys and their great support team.

Nice Plugin - Poor Communication
By , for WP 3.9.1

What about Universal Analytics? It's a simple question that Yoast could handle in a couple of primary locations:

  1. At this official repository page for the plugin
  2. At his official plugin page on his site, where a roadmap would be helpful
  3. No one is asking for a set timeline, but why make us hunt for a comment on an obscure site -- http://www.hostgarou.com/blog/wordpress/google-analytics-wordpress-support-universal-analytics/

    I had rated this 5-stars, but can no longer do so since Yoast refuses to post a simply quick answer on the support threads here where many users have been asking. We're not asking for ongoing support, and I understand that is expensive -- just a responsive roadmap for a key Google component.

    Until Yoast and team decide that minimal communication is important, I will downgrade the rating and look for alternative plugins (HINT -- Developers... there's an opportunity in the market here)

Nice and simple tool

This made it really easy to add the analytics code without having to worry about the code getting lost when we updated themes. There was a little hiccup when Universal Analytics came out with tracking, but all seems to be working now.
