Google Analytics Stats
So in an attempt to run multiple self hosted blogs, I found that it is very difficult to use wordpress.com stats, having to get a new API key for each blog and signing up for a new wordpress.com account each time.
I thought that Google Analytics was pretty easy and provides me with the metrics that I like to view so I created a dashboard plugin with an admin interface to configure the 3 parameters that are required. Those being, GMail Username, GMail Password, and Google Analytics Profile Name
Below is a screen shot of the admin interface as well as the plugin in action:
So here it is, click the link to download: Google Analytics Stats
The plugin is easy to setup just go to the Google Analytics Stats under settings and enter your gmail username and password and then the profile name of the metrics you want to show.
Comments and donations are always welcome
Google Analytics Stats just got better, I have made a few feature enhancements. The updates are listed below:
- Control the line graphs being displayed on your chart. You can now choose which of the 3 metrics you want to display in your chart.
- Choose if you would like to show animation of the line graphs as they display on your chart. This feature was requested by a user, he wanted to have the option to turn off the animation.
