Asynchronous Google Analytics Plugin

*Updated 14th September*

This is the easiest way to install Google Analytics into your Joomla website.

Supports both universal and asynchronous Google Analytics.

This Analytics code has now been updated to Google's new Universal analytics code.

You now have the option of switching between the two versions, universal and asynchronous depending on your needs and what you want to be tracking on your website.

Simplified for Joomla. I've updated this plugin to take advantage of all the new features in Joomla 3.x including, auto updating, and download via the Google web installer found in Joomla 3.2

This plug-in allows you to easily add in the asynchronous Google Analytic code in to the header of your website.

Loading the Google Analytics code asynchronously allows for the rest of your site to load while the analytics code loads in the background and thus increasing the loading speed of your site.

Since Google now actively looks at your websites loading performance to calculates its search engine rankings, this plug-in is well worth a try.

This new version of the plugin fully supports multiple sub domains and multiple top level domains.

This plugin has been simplified for beginners.

Please check our documentation for all the tweaks you can now do to this plugin.

More information about Google Asynchronous method can be found here:

All you have to do is configure the plug-in with your Google Analytic web property ID and enable to plug-in and away you go.

The plug-in renders on initialization and inserts the entire Google Analytic code just before the closing head tag in your website.

Thanks for that! I wanted to be one of the first plugins that was to use the online web installer for the Joomla 3 series. I hope the addition has made things easier for people.

I have spent hours at times trying to find the correct sections to get the GOOGLE ANALYTICS Code into a template for clients in the past. This has now revolutionised how I can get things done.

This should be a core joomla component for every website in my opinion. FANTASTIC WORK!

Thank you.

7 hours of search trying to figure out a way to insert GA into a Joomlart template.

Nothing worked and I came across this plugin....

7 mins (including download, install and publish time)

This is an amazing thing

I'd used this extension on another site with a troublesome template and it solved the issue immediately. Because of that experience, I decided to install it to a second site I was developing and it crashed the site completely. The error wasn't the developer's fault; I'd downloaded and installed the wrong version. After contacting the developer, I received an email explaining what the problem might be and how to rectify it. It was a quick fix and after installing the correct version and configuration, the analytics was working properly. I'll use it again - only I will make sure I click the right download button next time :-)

Hi, I have been fighting with a Yootheme warp framework for days. The Warp framework add backslashes to the analytics code and hence will not track the website. I got really fed up and tried everything in the code. No Luck. But when I found this plugin, I had it installed and verified in less than 5mins. This is really great. Thanks thanks thanks

1. Easy to Use.
2. Latest code of Google Analytics.
3. Puts the code just before the tag. (I checked this on my website and this part is an important one).
