Reviews

Could not Authorize

I tried to authorize the plugin, but nothing worked. I tried going to the help documentation on authoration issues, followed it exactly, and it still didn’t work. Went with another plugin and it worked perfectly the first time.

Lost a week of GA data

Upgraded to the latest version of WordPress 4.9.7 and only discovered a few days later in GA there have been no site visits. I then went into the plugin settings only to find the integration authorization code with GA has been lost and hence no GA tracking code on the site. Reauthorizing it works but it will wipe itself again overnight. A message to the plugin support team was never returned.

Referrer Spam

I installed this plugin a week or so ago and suddenly started getting a pile of referrer spam. Coincidence or not, but after removing the plugin, all referrer spam ceased.

Was Good, now it nags

This plugin now has a seemingly permanent request to « …collect some information about our plugin usage? « 
No matter how many times I click no, it still asks.

I have removed it and will no longer use the plugin. I am giving it two stars because it used to be great
