How to Add Google Analytics to Your WordPress Website

These days there are a ton of plugins to add your Google Analytics tracking code to your WordPress website. I know, if you perform a Google search you will find a lot of posts with plugins you can use. The trouble is, most of them are poorly coded and they’ll slow down your website.

Simple Google Analytics Tracking

It is the easiest and by far the best way to add Google Analytics to WordPress. This plugin is very well-coded so you can depend on it to add the Google Analytics tracking code without a bunch of extras. In fact, it’s even what we use right here on our own site.

This plugin does not track Editors and Administrators by default to prevent extra page views from showing up in your reports.


Let’s get started.
The first thing you need to do is install and activate the Simple Google Analytics Tracking plugin.

Upon activation the plugin will add a new menu item labeled “Google Analytics” to your WordPress “Settings” menu.

Next, you need to enter the Google Analytics code from Google in the Tracking ID field and then click on “Save Tracking ID”.

That’s all you have successfully added Google Analytics on your WordPress site.

I hope you found this useful. If you have any feedback or want to know why I chose this plugin over another, let me know! Comments are open!

WP Allied is Officially Open for Business

Welcome to WP Allied!

We are ridiculously excited to have you here and for the start of this new venture.
While we know we are not breaking new ground by offering WordPress support and maintenance services we do hope to provide it in a new way.  We do everything we can to make WordPress an asset, not a barrier.

Our Goal

Our goal is to provide excellent maintenance and support services to anyone with a WordPress site – on any host. There are millions of sites online powered by WordPress and it’s probably safe to say there are millions of folks needing help.

I Get Support From My Host

Of course you can get support from your host but mostly this is hosting support only which doesn’t include theme or plugin support and not to mention just help in general with your site. This is where WP Allied is different. Think of WP Allied as a one-stop shop for everything related to WordPress maintenance & support.
