Joomla Google Analytics Plugin: Simple Way To Add GA Code

Joomla Google Analytics Plugin

How to Add to Joomla, your Google Analytics code

If you have created a Joomla website, one of the very first things you want to do is monitor how much traffic is coming to the website. This is where the Joomla Google Analytics plugin is important.

By far the easiest way to monitor the traffic to your website is through Google Analytics. Of course, to be able to do this, you'll need to add the code from Google Analytics to your Joomla website template.

This comes with a risk of forgetting some pages or messing up your template.

Our Joomla Google Analytics plugin saves you the headache and does all the dirty work for you.

To save you from messing around with more code, we have also added the possibility of adding Google WebMaster verification code and Bing WebMaster Verification codes. 



This plugin from CollectiveRay available for download here gives you a quick way to add the Google Analytics code to a Joomla website. Simply, install the plugin, add the Google Analytics code in the Joomla plugin, enable the plugin and you're done!

If you want to enable Google and Bing WebMasters verification you can also do this via the plugin.

Get the respective codes from those sites and add them to the plugin, and these will be verified by the plugin too.
