Simple Plugin for Google Analytics

Сүрөттөө

Simple Plugin for Google Analytics is an unofficial WordPress plugin for Google Analytics, with Cookiebot integration.

Settings

Even though this is a really simple plugin, there are settings to:

  • Anonymize IPs
  • Force SSL
  • Ignore administrators
  • Choose the location of the script tag (either in <head> or <body>)

Cookiebot integration

If you have installed (and activated) the Cookiebot WordPress plugin, then “Simple Plugin for Google Analytics” will automatically include the Google Analytics code only if the user has given consent for “statistics” cookies. Also, it will disable advertising features (the allow_ad_personalization_signals option of gtag.js) unless the user has given consent for “marketing” cookies.

Automatic installation

Automatic installation is the easiest option — WordPress will handle the file transfer, and you won’t need to leave your web browser.

  1. Log in to your WordPress dashboard
  2. Navigate to the “Plugins” menu
  3. Search for “Simple Plugin for Google Analytics”
  4. Click “Install Now” and WordPress will take it from there
  5. Activate the plugin through the “Plugins” menu in WordPress

Manual installation

  1. Upload the entire overengineer-gasp folder to the wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the “Plugins” menu in WordPress

After activation

  1. In your WordPress dashboard, under “Settings”, you will find the “Google Analytics” menu
  2. Copy-paste your Google Analytics ID
  3. Change any other options
  4. Click “Save Changes”

To find your Google Analytics ID:

  1. Sign in to your Analytics account
  2. Click Admin

    Your Google Analytics ID is displayed at the top of the page.

The tracking ID is a string like UA-000000-2. It must be included in your tracking code to tell Analytics which account and property to send data to.

FAQ.KG

How is this different from all the other Google Analytics plugins?

It’s really simple and I mean really simple. Oh, and it works with Cookiebot.

Is this GDPR compliant?

While no single plugin can guarantee 100% GDPR compliance in WordPress, here’s what I did with this plugin:

  • There is a setting to anonymize IPs

Other than that, IANAL (I am not a lawyer) and I cannot guarantee 100% GDPR compliance.
