Nice features, plug and play
By , for WP 4.1

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.

Awesome plugin. Fully recommendable!
By , for WP 4.1

In a matter of just a few clicks I had my tracking working. I am very impressed by the Analytics dahsboard from where I can see the most important metrics without the need to access my Analytics account. Fully recommendable and very easy to use, great plugin!

Brilliant Plugin
By , for WP 4.1

I have to say, this plugin is brilliant.I had no SEO experience at all, when I started my blog, found this by searching the plugins directory and installed it.

I am not at all technically minded, but this set up was easy for me.

It helps you set up all the complicated, or so called complicated SEO with Google, through a series of point and click actions, removing all the hassle.

When you write your posts, it provides a superb guide as to how good your SEO is, through a traffic light system, with green being good SEO.I personally love it, as my blog went from hardly being seen, to now getting a lot of visits.

Highly recommended and it even makes you feel like YOU are an SEO guru!

Terrible
By , for WP 4.1

does not work at all, lost days of tracking. Manually input it in the header and not it works. Thanks a lot....

Totally Adware!
By , for WP 4.0.1

I was using it for long time. Then suddenly, this plugin started to show strange hidden ads on my blog. Very annoying. After deactivating this plugin, everything went back to normal. I am embedding GA code in theme files manually. I was not expecting this childish behavior from a big name like Yoast. Will never ever use this plugin again!

Constant error messages & harrassment
By , for WP 4.1

Constant error messages require too much attention. Overall the plugin is more interested in trying to sell you things than working properly. No thank you.

Forget this one !!
By , for WP 4.1

The free version doesn't give you any useful info. Forget it ! Pro for $ 89 is a rip off. Waste of time. I'll be better off logging to your GA account to see what's in there. They simply charge you for being lazy.
Besides, there is a better Google Analytic plugin in here that gives you ALL the info you need. 1 star is not enough, wish I could give it -10 stars!

Constant authentication, never works
By ,

After numerous attempts to configure this plugin by authenticating with the google UA code, deactivated the plugin. It simply does not work. The free version is clearly there to prompt you to spend $90 for the upgrade that does work.

does not work properly on multisite
By , for WP 4.1

I've uninstalled it because it has caused errors in a multi-site, which then works fine. They add a lot of unnecessary stuff to the plugin and made it useless(for multisite at least).
