Simple Google Analytics


Simple Google Analytics allows you to easilly add your Google Analytics code on all your pages.
Just add your ID, choose if you are on a sub-domain (setting in Google Analytics code), and enter the domain.
That’s all, you’re ready to go.

You can also choose where to put the code (Header or Footer), and add the SiteSpeed option from Google Analytics.

Simple Google Analytics will not track admin users logged-in.

This plugin is largely inspired by the Google Analytics Input plugin from Roy Duff ( ).
