The available extensions are:
* com_ganalytics -> the component shows different statistics in backend or frontend
* mod_ganalytics_stats -> brings the statistics to a module position
* mod_ganalytics_admin_stats rings the statistics to a module position in the joomla backend
* mod_ganalytics_stats_count -> shows some summed statistics
* plg_ganalytics_trcode -> adds the google tracking code to your web site that google can collect the data
This module is in its early stages but some improvements will come soon, register at g4j.laoneo.net and add give me some ideas in the forum what you need.
How google himself sees his statistics service:
Google Analytics is the enterprise-class web analytics solution that gives you rich insights into your website traffic and marketing effectiveness. Powerful, flexible and easy-to-use features now let you see and analyze your traffic data in an entirely new way. With Google Analytics, you're more prepared to write better-targeted ads, strengthen your marketing initiatives and create higher converting websites.
Last, the support is really good!
Having said that I was able to install this component, with the help of the support forum on the developers website. Which BTW was very prompt with their responses to my questions. Once I had the component installed and working I couldn't believe the amount of information that I can see.
The only recommendation that I would make would be to improve the instructions and include the setup process for Google Analytics as well as Google API.
Posted this on the official forum and about one day later the developer fixed it and rewrote the component to support Google's 3.0 API.
If thats not excellent support, I don't now either.
The component itself is working without errors and keeping it's promises!
5 Stars, no doubt about it.
Please use in the future our very active forum. There was a limit of accounts to import which was fixed in the version 2.0.2. i hope you will reconsider your review :-)
But I found this extension, with screenshots and documentation that helped me understand that it can help me with its features. And because of Google Analytics now my portal looks accurate.
I wasn't able to keep stats for different sub-pages with conventional counters and statistics extensions.
This extension worth the time and it's very easy to setup. Just make a Google Analytics account, make a profile, get back to this extension in joomla and import your profile. From there you can use the module to display any statistics you are following from anywhere.
Thank you for all your efforts and specially for sharing this for free, with all of us.
In the future please try to honour the work of volunteers. If something is not working because you don't understand it, don't blame others for your incompetence. We have a lively forum on our G4J project and are willing to help out others free of charge. But users like you are a shame for joomla and the whole open source community.
You was reading the wrong documentation which is for a free PHP library to fetch the google analytics data. The documentation for GAnalytics is describing very well how to handle GAnalytics inside joomla. If you don't understand how the extension works (which is more or less straight forward) then ask!! But, please never call my extension garbage again. Keep in mind how you would react if I would give you such a bad review for something you are doing in your free time!!!!
I'm considering buying the PRO version as well...but first I have some other tasks to do :-)
Your just need a Google Analytics account import into the component and you are up and running. Furthermore you are supplied with a plugin that puts the tracking code in all your pages with no bother.
Really simple and brilliant
After the installation, I need to:
1) Go to GAnalytics, and click "Import"
2) Select the account and click "add"
In my host (HostMonster), it always failed and the error message in the Firefox is: Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 24 bytes) in /home/nimbachi/public_html/ibrandingme/libraries/simplepie/simplepie.php on line 10373.
And, it is difficult to uninstall and upgrade.
This tool should be a good tool, if it can get improvement at installation/upgrade/uninstallation.
This here is not a forum!! You asked the same question in the support forum so why doing a review here? The JED guys are offering for this kind of questions a support link......
And the support is awesome as well as I had a problem setting it up the first time, it was my fault not the extensions one.
highly recommended for everyone using google analytics!!
that was the reason I created GAnalytics....no more overloaded databases anymore ;-))
I had downloaded it to see if it could provide more detailed feedback than the other, "bigtime" Google Analytics.
