Simple, does what it's supposed to do.

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.

Just the best

I tried some different GA plugins, but most of them made my database explode. Using Yoast'one now.. no problems anymore. Miss the dashboard widget - but that minor problem

tracking own web visits
By , for WP 3.9

At first sight this looks a very good plugin and I am sure it does lots of useful things. However for, the one basic and most important thing is to avoid tracking my own visits.

I would have thought this was a pretty obvious need for most people but there seems nothing in FAQ or support documents that clearly tells you what to do.I have now spent hours of time trying to figure this out and have all but given up.

For that reason I cannot recommend this plugin to anyone else- especially a relative beginner such as myself.
