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 isn't just for beginners. We've also have now added in support for the granular tweaking of variables such as user session times and cookie expiry times. Please check our documentation for all the tweaks you can now do to this plugin. http://www.pbwebdev.com.au/blog/asynchronous-goolge-analytics-plugin-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 2.5.6 - 1st August 2012 Two new features
Added new features:
-Anonymous IP tracking to comply with German privacy laws
-Option to place code output at the end of the output or at the bottom of the page before the closing tag.
Version 2.5.5 - 1st August 2012 No more new updates for J1.5
I'm going to stop updating the Joomla 1.5 version from here on in. As Joomla 1.5 is coming to end of life in September I won't be developing for it anymore. The Joomla 1.5 version will still be downloadable as is for usage but won't have any more new features.
Added more advanced features for cookie and session control for Google Analytics we've found useful for tweaking on Joomla websites.

22 September 2011
Updated to work with Joomla 1.6 and Joomla 1.7
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.
