works for me, dashboards are too simple
By , for WP 4.1.1

It meets the main purpose- adds the GA code, does not count the logged users, etc.
Reporting features (dashboard) are little bit too simple. I have WP installation on subdomain and it does not allow me to see numbers for subdomain only (in free version) which makes the whole dashboards/reports feature useless for me.
But I found the solution for that- Google analytics reports where I can combine multiple GA accounts, unlimited custom dashboards and calculations with 5 metrics for free.

Does not work

Surprised to see this plugin broken as SEO by Yost works so well and has been very user friendly. This plugin, although updated 4 days ago is just unoperational so don't waste your time and look elswhere unless trhey fix it. My verison was 5.3.2

loading pages & admin takes for ever
By ,

i ran a profile test when i had this activated and this plough made 88% of my site load very slow

it took like 40 se bonds just to login and load any of the admin pages...

not happy at all

This is supposed to work right?
By , for WP 4.1

setup looks smooth and simple enough, but nothing happens, and no debug info either.

installed another plugin that was up and running within 3 minutes. so 1 star on this. (would get 0 if possible, but I guess 1 is for effort.)

Did absolutely nothing

Nice features, plug and play

Cool plugin! Thanks for sharing it! I thought it was a pointless idea at first: Come on! If you want advanced lead tracking features for professional marketing research or something like that don't be cheap! Go pro and use Marketo or at least Analytics' paid version! (There are good Marketo integration plugins for WordPress by the way; I should now: I've developed the best one myself with the guys at hooshmarketing). Anyway, the fact is that it adds some customization options that are really useful to the typical blogger. And that's really nice.

P.S. Don't forget to authenticate using Google instead of doing the old manual UA code input, or you'll miss out on the cool new Dashboard feature.

Broke my site
By , for WP 4.1

The javascript is broken, so the admin dashboard doesn't work properly (the tabs does not change views). 2 different websites on 2 different servers this problem occured.

For some strange reason it deactivated jquery even though the file is clearly there.

I do not recommend the current version.
