This is a list of the regularly asked questions about the Google Analytics for WordPress plugin.
- Where do I find the Google Analytics reports?
Log in to Google Analytics and check them there. At this time, the plugin only aids in tracking and does not come with a widget or any other fancy stuff that shows you your traffic. You could use a plugin like Mailchimp’s Analytics360 for that.
- I added the plugin, but I don’t see any stats yet?
It can take up to 24 hours for Google Analytics to display the stats for your website, even more for the custom variables to start showing up, even if the pageviews are already showing.
- I can’t get the plugin to connect to / authenticate with Google?
Please use the method to manually enter your UA code:If you can’t find your UA code / Account ID, use this tool.
- How can I track downloads?
Check the box for “Track outbound clicks & downloads”, after that, make sure the file types you want to track are listed in the box of extensions to track as downloads. You’ll find this input field under “Advanced”.
- Why doesn’t comment tracking work?
The comment tracking code assumes the ID of your commentform is ‘commentform’ if you’re not using the core
comment_form()function. It also relies on the
comment_form_after()hook to be in place in order to be able to do it’s work.
