BIGSHOT Google Analytics Popular Plugin

This Plugin will add the Google Analytics Tracker Code to your site automagically.

Versions to serve Joomla 1.5-1.6-1.7-2.5 and now 3.0 iThe extension was also updated to use the newest Google Analytics protocols.

This Plugin was created as a better alternative to the several "module based" solutions that are out there. As far as I know this is the first and only Joomla! Native Plugin that does this.

Google Analytics, just like this extension, is free for you to use. Visit "" to signup.

I was previously using something else, but had to find a Joomla 2.5 compatible extension after upgrading my websites.

This extension was easy to install, works well and seems to be well supported and available for all versions of Joomla.

new to google analytics overall and really didn't want to paste code in all of my joomla pages, so i gave this a shot. simply enable the plugin and put in your UA-xxxxxxxx-x code and save it.

now figuring out google analytics i'm sure won't be as easy but this plug in was a huge time saver.

I use this on all my sites. Easy to install and add the tracking code to. The version I was using for 1.5 didn't put the code in the head tag but the 2.5 version does.

Super easy to install and works perfect in my case Joomla 2.5 with a Joomlart template.

I was especially looking to install the UA tracking code in a Joomlart template - The solutions given in the Joomlart forum are way to complicated - this extension does the trick. Thank you for submitting this free extension to the community.

I have been using the Google Analytics feature provided by the YJSG Framework on my site until I detected that it was the main cause for very poor rendering times. Disabled that setting and installed Bigshot plugin instead. Now the site loads in just a couple of seconds.
I wish I had realized about it sooner. It only took a minute to download and install. Thanks guys!

Very very easy to install & use but the code Google Analytics uses isn't the most current. The code should not be in the head of the page, right before the ending [/head] tag. I'll stick with hardcoding it in for now until a newer version is available. Thanks anyway!
