Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

You need a WordPress site (of course), running WordPress 3.8 or higher and a Google Analytics account (which is free over here if you don’t already have a Google Analytics account).
No, the Better Google Analytics plugin is for Google Universal Analytics. And really, you wouldn’t want to. All Google Analytics accounts have been upgraded to Universal Analytics, and the non-Universal tracking libraries have been deprecated by Google.
Nothing. Better Google Analytics handles all the JavaScript code generation internally. If you want to add your own custom JavaScript, there is an option for that under the Advanced settings.
If it’s possible and it makes sense, then yes. The best way to put in a feature request for Better Google Analytics would be to create a thread in the support forum over here.
The Google Analytics Content Experiments are run automatically on the server-side, so there is no special configuration or JavaScript you need to be injecting. You also don’t need to make duplicate pages with your variations. We’ve simplified it so anyone can easily run A/B testing on their site with Google Analytics Content Experiments.
Yes. Unfortunately we don’t speak every language in the world, so if you would like to help with translating the Better Google Analytics plugin, you can use the translation system on
Yes, you can install the Better Google Analytics plugin for a single site in the network or for all sites in the network. Additionally, you can optionally link a single Google Analytics account for all sites in the network (or you can link unique Google Analytics accounts for each site in the network… either way, it’s up to you).
In no way, shape, or form do we have access to your Google Analytics data.
The way OAuth2 works with your Google Analytics account, it wouldn’t be possible for us to access your Google Analytics data even if we wanted to (which we don’t). If you utilize the default Google Analytics API project credentials, the system will ask you for permission to access your data. Google will then issue a one-time use code that is exchanged for OAuth2 credentials that are used when making Google Analytics API calls. The code is one-time use (meaning if someone intercepted it and redeemed it for credentials, you wouldn’t be able to yourself). After your site redeems the code, it’s no longer valid. The resulting credentials are stored inside your installation and are never sent anywhere. That being said, if you are still worried about the security of your Google Analytics data, you are able to utilize your own Google Analytics API project credentials (it’s just a little more work for you to set up that Google API project – the only API type that you need to enable under that project is the Google Analytics API).
