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. http://nicheextensions.com/documentation/3-google-analytics-for-joomla
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.

Version 3.0 (27th October 2013)
New updated analytics plugin simple. This just gets the code out there and loaded on your website. Code has been optimised to make it as small as possible. If you're just after the ability to get the Google Analytics tracking code onto your site, then this is all you need. All advanced features have been removed from this plugin and merged into the advanced PRO version.
PRO version has also been released to allow you to fine tune how Google Analytics works on your website.
This one does the thing it is supposed to do and have features for the advanced user.
It's simple to use - I have only seen it done more userfriendly in WordPress (but shhhh .... that's another story).
For Joomla this is perfect.
When I get paid on this job I'll be back to pay my dues and say thanks with some $$'s!
It only takes less than a minute to download, install the plugin, then perform a very simple configuration without the panels are confusing.
File with the small size (only 6 KB), a simple display options .. but it works well and is very satisfying. For those of you who use Joomla 2.5, this plugin is a great solution.
Thank you very much for PB Web Development Australia for making this plugin.
