Are you wondering which words attract visitors to your site? Do you want to know why people might be leaving the site? Google Analytics is the first choice, and most popular answer, for these questions.
The biggest stumbling block in the beginning is figuring out how to do the integration and where to place the code that Google Analytics needs. The Google Analytics plugin by Yoast is an easy solution and involves no messing around with the code. Here's how to use the Google Analytics plugin:
Step 1: Set up your Google Analytics account
Step 2: Install the Google Analytics plugin
Step 3: Grant access to Google
You may run into a little frustration at this point. I found that it takes a little while for everything to get communicated and clicking that button didn't work consistently.
As an alternative you may need to click on "Manually enter your UA code" and type in the code you were issued.
If it has worked correctly, the warning message will no longer appear. If you still see it, try again or switch to the manual method.
Check the source on your homepage. Success is seeing the Google code automatically inserted for you.
