On some website it is hard to get Google Analytics to install and show on your website but this will make it so easy. You might not have the skills to modify code to add in the code from Google Analytics either.

This will help you get it and installed on your website.

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

Supports both universal and asynchronous Google Analytics.

This Google Analytics code has now been updated to the new Universal Google 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 Joomla web installer found in Joomla 3.2

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 Analytics 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 Analytics Asynchronous method can be found here:

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

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

Ease of use

With the company support for novices excellent


We wanted to order the professional version including the installation service. Recommendation: acitvate PayPal!


We hate documentations at all! Thats why we order professional services :-)

I used this to: scanOpenLabel customer support web site.


This script works great and makes tracking a breeze the added tracking features come in really handy too.

Ease of use

It is very easy to implement and get running. I test real time on Google and it shows right away.

I used this to: I just wish I could figure out how to push it to the bottom of the page so it doesn't show in Page Speed Insights as above the fold render blocking.

Very simple

First I have been reading all the documentation and questions coming from others, then when I started... up and running in less than one minute. Thanks for the good work Peter ! In less than 5 minutes I already could see the results in my Google Analytics account. In fact, that's how ALL software in the world should be working. (downloaded version 4.5.1 on Joomla 3.4.1)

not needed, because good information is available on the internet.

Very very easy to use


Instant support. Thanks to Peter

I used this to: My business website


Not really sure why this didn't work for me, it says it should for 2.5. I checked the view source on my website and the coding was there...

Ease of use

Could not get it to work, feel bad I have to give a negative review because the developers really went out of the way to post a nice video!

Owner's reply: Sorry you had an issue with the plugin there.

From your feedback I've included documentation in the plugin itself to make it easier for people to start debugging why something isn't working.

You issue with Google not detecting the script is usually because there is a slight delay with the pick up of the code. test again in 6 or so hours and it will be fine.

It is just work

This extension is simply just work as it should be. Nice work, Pete Bui :)

Just installed on Joomla 3.3.0. Watched the video concurrent for step by step installation which, though not absolutely necessary, was well worth the ntly look like).

updated 14th September MediaElements is a HTML5 media player that is commonly used on many websites online. Lately you will also find it in all WordPress websites by default as the MediaElements player was integrated into the core of WordPress. This plugin gives you a similar experience and helps you easily integrate in the MediaElements player into your Joomla website. Release notes: Version 1.3 -bug fixes and additional update URL and direct download url

Do you hate reCaptcha and want to use an alternative that is a little bit more accesible that that really hard to use one by Google. Textcaptcha is a perfect alternative to reCaptcha. It asks logical questions such as, "Out these three words, which is a color: Red, ball, bat." With the answer being RED. You may also get mathematical questions such as, "What is one plus 11". Great to try and best of all it is free.
