Site Management, Analytics

Google Analytics plugin helps you easily add in Google Analytics to your Joomla website. It allows for both Universal Google Analytics and Asynchronous Google Analytics. Yes both Google Analytics codes.

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.

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.

no need to use it yet, but it's free so thank you. But this site review system is annoying.
very very very very very very very good documentation. So good it's good.
I used this to: I use this for my association website. I will use this on my other website too
I use the pro version of the extension and am really happy with this, works like expected!
Ease of use
Works like every other Joomla plugin, set up in a few minutes without looking into the documentation :)

Insert tracking code Google Analytics.
Ease of use
perfect, easy to use,
I used this to: For GDPR Law from 25.05.2018 in tracking the visitor's IP address must be anonymus. In the settings of this plugin one can enable Anonymus IP: works perfect.
Also remember that Google Analytics settings should be updated for GDPR la
did not get that far. I needed support but could find none. The contact page goes to an error and the tel phone does not answer

The plugins produces a deprecated warning with php 7.
Ease of use
Easy to set up, just enter your Google Analytics id and you're done
Owner's reply: We've tested the plugin against three different version of PHP 7 including

* 7.1.1
* 7.0.15
* 7.0.8

Could you please provide the error message and what line is calling the deprecated function?

We've actually just looked through the code of the pro and free versions, both latest, and we have only used the preg_replace function in our code which is still supported by PHP 7

If you could let us know it would be much appreciated.
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
