connection error
By , for WP 4.1

Keeps on saying reauthenticate.

5.2.7 - Had to uninstall it
By , for WP 4.1

The 5.2.7 keeps on reporting an error:
"Failed to fetch the new data from Google Analytics. Please reauthenticate on the settings page".
If you reauthenticate, nothing happens, and like in a loop the same massage is shown again.
I think it is necessary to subscribe to an app...
I had to unistall it and change plugin.

Unescaped quotes in javascript links
By , for WP 4.0.1

This plugin prevented our maps from loading, as it created a total mess of of the infobox links. Our links are created and added to the map array by javascript, this plugin does not appear capable of handling that.

Connection constantly breaks / no dashboard
By , for WP 4.0.1

I thought I'd give it a try because I like the SEO plugin. I've been using for about 3 weeks now and it constantly looses it's connection to my analytics account. It will warn me but sometimes a week will pass I won't realize it. There goes a weeks worth of data. Also, there is no dashboard.

Last version is a disaster
By , for WP 4.0.1

Used to work well enough.
The last version breaks the connection to Google Analytics and does not let you reconnect.
Yoast's technical support does NOT take one's bug report except if a paid client.
Will find another more reliable solution for the 50+ websites I installed with the plugin.

It works very well
By , for WP 4.0.1

I'm using it for the foundations of knowing where the most est of my clients. Anyway, I don't have to prove that the information is 100% correct, but it is accurate enough for me make good decisions about my site.

Latest update crashes site, won't authenticate
By ,

Updated to the latest version on two blogs. One "white screened," taking the site down; the other simply won't authenticate no matter what I do.

Do NOT update to the latest version of the plugin, released Dec. 16, 2014
By ,

I updated it today, and the plugin immediately displays this message at the top of my dashboard:

"Failed to fetch the new data from Google Analytics. Please reauthenticate on the settings page!"

So, I followed the instructions, and still get the same error message. Over and over again.

Sounds like there's a new bug they've introduced. So DON'T install this until they get the bug corrected.

White screen in admin area in latest update. Beware!
By , for WP 4.0.1

After updating two sites to the latest version, the admin areas have a nice white screen. I am going to start looking for another GA plugin, I can't trust a plugin with no QA process.

Good but too many updates
By , for WP 4.0.1


This plugin is really good :)
It seems the daily updates are here for increasing the download count only....too bad.
