Usage

To enable Google Analytics tracking on your site, follow these steps:

  1. Visit the “Plugin Settings” panel
  2. Enter your GA Tracking ID
  3. Choose either Universal Analytics or Global Site Tag
  4. Configure any other plugin settings as desired (optional)

Save changes and done. After 24-48 hours, you can log into your Google Analytics account to view your stats.

Note that it can take 24-48 hours after adding the tracking code before any analytical data appears in your Google Analytics account. To check that the GA tacking code is included, look at the source code of your web page(s). Learn more at the Google Analytics Help Center.

Upgrading Analytics

Google Analytics tracking methods change over time. First there was urchin.js, then ga.js, and now analytics.js, soon to be replaced officially by gtag.js. If you are using an older version and want to upgrade, check out these Google docs:

Plugin Upgrades

To upgrade GA Google Analytics, remove the old version and replace with the new version. Or just click “Update” from the Plugins screen and let WordPress do it for you automatically.

Note: uninstalling the plugin from the WP Plugins screen results in the removal of all settings from the WP database.

For more information, visit the GA Plugin Homepage.

Restore Default Options

To restore default plugin options, either uninstall/reinstall the plugin, or visit the plugin settings > Restore Default Options.

Uninstalling

GA Google Analytics cleans up after itself. All plugin settings will be removed from your database when the plugin is uninstalled via the Plugins screen. Your collected GA data will remain in your Google account.

Perguntas frequentes

Tracking code is not displayed in source code?

If you check the source code of your pages and don’t see the GA tracking code, check the following:

  • Check that your theme includes the hooks, wp_head and wp_footer
  • If you are using a caching plugin, try clearing the cache

If the GA tracking code still is not displayed, most likely there is interference from another plugin or theme. In this case, the best way to resolve the issue is to do some basic WordPress troubleshooting.

Google Analytic says tracking code is not detected?

You need to wait awhile for Google to collect some data, like at least a day or whatever. Standard stuff for Google Analytics. For more information, check out the Google Analytics Help Center.

Can I filter the output of the “Custom GA Code” setting?

Yes, you can use the gap_custom_code filter hook.

How to implement Google Optimize?

Here are the steps:

  1. Enable Universal Analytics in the plugin settings
  2. Add the Optimize plugin (e.g., ga('require', 'GTM-XXXXXX');) to the setting, “Custom GA Code”
  3. Add the Page Hiding (flicker) snippet to the setting, “Custom <head> Code”
  4. Enable the setting, “Custom <head> Location”

Done! You can view the source code of your web pages to verify the results.

More info about Google Optimize.

How to enable Opt-out of tracking?

Here are the steps:

  1. Add the following code to the plugin setting, “Custom Code”: <script>window['ga-disable-UA-XXXXX-Y'] = true;</script>
  2. Check the box to enable the setting, “Custom Code Location”.

Done! You can view the source code of your web pages to verify the results.

Very nice, as simple as stated and no hassles. Performed EXACTLY as described. Going to the Pro version for sure. Being a newbie, did a little research first which helped better understand what this plug-in was doing which also made us much better appreciate how simple and well this pug-in performed.

All I can say is pretty much what everyone else is saying. This plug-in works right out of the box! After fighting with a couple of the other plug-ins that claim all this and all that, they fail like a an old satellite crashing to earth. Thank you for creating this. Only thing that I'm not getting is mobile stats, but that might be something on my end. Will look into it.

This is a fantastic, simple and lightweight plugin. It's not intrusive and there are no ads popping up all over the WP Admin area like some other "monstrous" Google Analytics plugins. A plugin I use on every client website.
11 de Setembro, 2019
Some Google Analytics plugins appear to suffer badly from featuritis - when plugins eventually bloat beyond practicality - but this one stays on the shortlist of essential all-time great WP plugins. It covers pretty much 100% of all average WP users needs, and probably 99% of all of WP pros. Setting it up is very quick; it performs very well, doesn't drag the site down, and is solidly coded by a longtime WP coding rockstar. I can't and won't do without, and in fact I just upgraded to the Pro version just to support the author. Rock on, Jeff.
