WebGuru's Google Analytics Plugin for Joomla PDF Print E-mail
Hi there!
Thank you for installing our Google Analytics plugin for Joomla.
THE CHALLENGE: Up until now it was nearly impossible to NOT track your own visits on Google Analytics in Joomla. This posed a problem as your analytics data was diluted by visits by either you or your office/IT/marketing folks. Many smaller businesses have their website as their starting homepage in their browsers. This can hugely inflate the actual number of visitors to your site by people that really matter - your potential customers and business partners. We, at WebGuru, set out to solve that problem and have come up with this plugin.
THE SOLUTION: Now, you can measure "true" visitors to your site without recording yourself and your team. This will prevent the Google Analytics coding from falsely inflating your pageviews, time on site, number of visitors, etc. You can even decide and set which level of users should be included in the Google Analytics tracking. To our knowledge, this is the first publicly available Google Analytics plugin that allows users to do this in Joomla.
ABOUT US: WebGuru is an internet marketing agency based out of Mongolia. Because our founder has spent 14 years in Colorado, we also hope to soon open a presence in Colorado, namely Boulder/Denver area. Currently, we provide search engine optimization (SEO), web design, and web development services: WebGuru's Web Solutions page. You can also follow our Internet Marketing Blog.

Issues with Past Options for Installing Google Analytics on Your Site

This posed a problem as your analytics data was diluted by visits by either you or your office/IT/marketing folks. Many smaller businesses have their website as their starting homepage in their browsers.

We, at WebGuru, set out to solve that problem and have come up with this plugin.

Benefits of the WebGuru's Plugin

Now, you can measure "true" visitors to your site without recording yourself and your team. This will prevent the Google Analytics coding from falsely inflating your pageviews, time on site, number of visitors, etc. You can even decide and set which level of users should be included in the Google Analytics tracking. To our knowledge, this is the first publicly available Google Analytics plugin that allows users to do this in Joomla.

WebGuru's Google Analytics Plugin FEATURES

WebGuru's Google Analytics plugin allows options to exclude site administrators, managers, editors, etc from being tracked.  It also makes sure that the administrative pages do NOT show up in your Google Analytics tracking.

More specifically, the this plugin for Joomla:

  • Allows you the option to NOT track the admin area

  • Allows you the option to log outgoing links from your site - How are your visitors leaving your site?  On which links did they click?
  • Works with the new ga.js and any updates of it

Download Latest Version

Thank you for downloading the plugin.  We hope this is exactly what you have been looking.

Research Notes & References

Before we created this plugin, we used to use the BIGSHOT Google Analytics plugin.  It's a nifty tool and has been the best Google Analytics extension for Joomla since its launch in fall of 2008.  It allowed for a very simple and easy installation.  It did not track the admin area.  And, it worked without any issues.  However, as we get more involved in the internet marketing industry, we realized that this tool simply was not good enough anymore.

The biggest issue with this extension and all the other tools out there (to our knowledge) is that they all include YOUR visits in the analytics data.  If we, as business owners, want to track our visitors and our true customers, then we really do not want to have our own visits dilluting the actual visits to our sites.

Before we launched our plugin, we did a quick research again just to make sure there are not anything for Joomla that already does provide this.

We researched & looked at other tools out there:

  • BIGSHOT Google Analytics plugin - best alternative to our release (in our humble opinion of course), but does NOT have options to exclude user groups, log 404 errors, outgoing links, etc
  • Connect Analytics - module (have to be enabled in hidden module) & again no options to exclude user groups, log 404 errors, outgoing links, etc
  • J!Analytics - module (have to be enabled in hidden module) released in March 2008 & have no options to exclude user groups, log 404 errors, outgoing links, etc
  • JoomlaGATor - initially launched in October 2007 as module, this extension allows some interesting options like specific user and download tracking.  However, there is no option to exclude certain user groups.
  • Google Analytics Tracking Module - launched initially in 2006 as a module, this extension was one of the first major Joomla extensions to allow people to effortlessly add Joomla tracking to various sites.  Like all the other tools, this also has no options to exclude certain user groups.
We also looked at some of the newer and less downloaded GA tracking installation modules and tools out there (ARIO, jxAnalytics, Goaxi, short to the point, etc).  Some of those provide some additional interesting functionality, however none of them offer ability to exclude certain user groups.

A Final Note

We think that, as of this release date, this Joomla plugin allows for THE MOST accurate tracking with Google Analytics.  This by no means is degrading of previous and existing coders and programmers.  Rather, this is just an update of something that hopefully will be useful for Joomla users everywhere.  We are of course grateful for all other programmers for helping further develop Joomla into the one of the finest Content Management Systems (CMS) out there today.

Frequently Asked Questions

We just launched the plugin, so we don't have any questions right now. ;)  Please let us know your thoughts and ask us if you have any questions.  Please also feel free to share your ideas on how we can make it even better.

  1. Are there any security issues caused by the plugin?
    • No.  There are absolutely no security issues that are caused by the WebGuru's Google Analytics Plugin for Joomla.

      The issue brought to attention by Pat Lee is a simple integration issue between the two plugins.  Both plugins use the tag for their coding.  The issue that she had showed that the Google Analytics coding showed up in the username field on the admin login page.  As you can see, this is not a security issue at all.  Furthermore, we have not even been able to replicate the issue yet. 

      So, there are no known security issues with the plugin.  Please continue to use and try it out as usual.  We thank Pat for trying out the plugin and also for letting us know the issues she had.
  2. Where do I obtain the ENTIRE Google Analytics code?
    • Log into your Google Analytics account
      • If you do not have a Google Analytics account, you can sign up for Google Analytics at www.google.com/analytics.  If you also do not have a Google account, you will be prompted to sign up for a new Google Account.  Once, you follow the given steps to create your own Google Analytics account for your website, you will be able to see your entire code at one of the final steps.
    • Once you have logged into your Google Analytics account, go to the appropriate Joomla website profile, click "Edit", and then click "Check Status".  You should now be able to see your entire Google Analytics coding.  Copy the entire code, starting with .
  3. There are no other major questions, however please try out our plugin and let us know what you think of it.  We will do our best to incorporate some of your suggestions on the next update.

Release Notes

The plugin was developed in its entirety by WebGuru Co Ltd.  The plugin is released under GPL.  It is available for free for use.

We hope to make this one of the most effective tools for accurately analyzing website traffic in order to increase website effectiveness and make correct business decisions.  Please send us your suggestions and ideas for improvement.

THANK YOU FOR DOWNLOADING AND TRYING OUR PRODUCT!!

With Love from Mongolia,
Team at WebGuru

Hi

I have major problems with Swekey's Joomla security plugin and the WebGuru GA plugin

The GA Javascript that was entered in WebGuru's Plugin appears in the Joomla admin login box ( have sent screens by email )

This seems like a major security loophole

Otherwise this plugin has tremendous potential and could be enhanced even further .But without a trusted security branding, it cannot and should not be used .

Hi Pat, we have reviewed the images that you sent. As you indicated, the issue is that the GA code appears in the Joomla admin login box. Aside from that, we do not see any issues.

As a result, we believe that our plugin does NOT have any security issues. Everyone please go ahead, download, and use the plugin as usual. There are no security issues or threats to be worried about. It is just integration issue with the Swekey plugin, which we will address down the road.

Pat, thank you again for pointing out a potential issue.

Everyone, please download and use as usual. There is no security issue.

@Lisa thank you for giving our plugin a shot. Sounds like the issue really has to do with directory permissions (although 755 should be fine). Are you able to install other plugins without any issues? Please PM us at info (at) webguru-co.com. I will forward the PM to Saruul, who is the developer with us.

@Nicky thanks for giving it a shot. We are glad that this is exactly what you were looking for... Please give us a 5-star review at Joomla Extensions Directory (bit.ly/Un0Ty) ;)

Great product. The only thing i can't get working is outgoing tracking. The option is selected, but it currently shows 0 outgoing traffic in analytics. I even clicked 1 time myself a couple of days ago.

Any suggestions on things to check?

Thanks,

@Seth Thanks! The outgoing links should be recorded in the Event Tracking section of GA. It is located within Content section in GA. Also, I sent you an email. Please email back if you have further questions. Cheers!

while the plugin works great and installs no problems it breaks RSS feeds. I am using joomla v1.15, if I have the plugin enabled the RSS feed on home page does not work, an error message using IE is "Only one top level element is allowed in an XML document" it does not work in either Chrome or Firefox.

I did not realise my feeds were not working so took a bit of time to work out what broke them, it turns out that it was this plugin.

Otherwise would have got an excellent from me

Thanks for visiting us.
Yes we have plans to use Google Analytics Asynchronous Tracking.
In 2010 we'll launch 1.0 version of our plugin.

You don't have to worry about anything. We are using our plugin every site we develop. As you can see our plugin installed in this site. It is working fine.

If you have any problem let us know.

According to Google Gods, they recommend the following placement in the source code of a page: "We generally recommend that you place the Google Analytics tracking code immediately before the closing tag of your pages in order to avoid any issues with page loading delays for visitors with slow connection speeds."

However, I have found on the site noted, that the placement is BeTween the body and html tags. How come or how do you correct that?

Otherwise, this is an easy to install and implement plug-in!

I have decided to try another plugin that does something similar, This one just worked and no error message.

Shame it came to this, but if it breaks something then users will no other option but to look elsewhere. Still don't know why it broke my home page RSS feed, or an answer to the error message.

@Stan the coding should have been installed before the closing tag. Can you send us your website address (see my email)

@TechnoboyUK Apparently there are many plugins and components in Joomla. With everyone using various coding, there is room for conflicts in the coding. I think what Saruul was trying to say is that this is something we will look into implementing for version 1.0 for release in 2010. The current plugin so far works on all of our Joomla websites (dozen plus), but somehow there are other conflicts. We will have to look at that. Kind regards.

Hi

The analytics plugin produces valid code on the frontend. However, it conflicts with two other extensions - Account Expiration Component and extlorer. In both cases, it gives an error message:

Notice: Undefined index: HTTPS in /home/xxxxx/public_html/plugins/system/webgurugooglean alytics.php on line 182

Any ideas?

AND

This appears in on top of the page above the header itself in the backend on JOOMLAWATCH component.

I am experiencing an issue with this in the admin area of the site. I am using CB 1.2.1 on Joomla 1.5.15.

When adding a new CB user, the ajax username checker kicks in. There is then an attempt to connect to Google Analytics, and the screen goes white. Just hangs there. I have the switch set to NOT monitor the admin are. Any ideas?

I noticed the same problem with the RSS feed. When using this plugin, if I clicked on the RSS feed, I get a Save As dialog box.

After coming here, I followed the suggestion of turning off the 'Log errors', Log Search, and 'Log Outgoing' options, and feeds work as usual now.
Maybe set the default install to have those turned off.

I still like web-guru version, just for the blocking of admin logging.

Hi everyone,

Please download and try out the latest version of the plugin. We have named it version 0.9 simply to test it to make sure there are no more issues.

The RSS issue should now be resolved. Asynchronous tracking should now be available and working just fine. There are new features such as IP block to block your entire office IP addresses from being tracked. CB1 issue does not show on CB1.1.2, so please update to latest Community Builder.

Are there any more issues? Please everyone test it before we release it as 1.0.

If you find issues, you can email us directly at info (at) webguru-co.com. Please indicate version of Joomla, type of hosting, list of modules/components installed, and the issue in detail.

Without further dues, here is the version 0.9: webguru-co.com/downloads/webguru-google-analytics-v.0.9.zip

@Clay I believe responded to you via emails. I hope you got them

I have downloaded and installed v0.9 of the Google Analytics plugin on Joomla 1.5.17 running on a UNIX platform.

I believe the logic of the code is opposite of what the admin screen describes. To prevent the plugin from inputting the Google code in for me as a Super Admin, I have to select 'No' yet the instructions say to "input 'Yes' if I DO NOT want to log that user". I believe that on line 134 of the code is where the logic is that controls this.

I would suggest it's simpler to indicate the message to say "Log Super Administrators when logged in" and leave the code as it currently is.

I will continue to test. I'm pleased with the IP exclusion and that works fine.

After further testing, I'm not sure that the logic to handle exceptions for higher access groups is working. I first tested as a Super Administrator, then logged out and back in as a registered user. Debugging the code led me to find that the plugin thought the user was of group 25 which it wasn't. I'm curious as to why the code is looking for a COOKIE, and the session ID of that cookie to determine what group the user is in. Further up in the code the variable group_id is set to the current and active users's ID. I have modified the code accordingly and it seems to work ok. I will submit that in a subsequent post for your review.

@michael, please email me your notes. thank you for taking the time to review and add comments.

btw, the cookies was used so that front-end visits could be recognized as visits by the super admin, admin, etc. otherwise, we cannot exclude front-end pageviews.

Hi, I'm using Joomla 1.5.18 and just installed your plugin in version 0.9. I'm using Joomla in Polish language if that matters. No JoomFish.

First of all I've noticed that language pack is not working. I se in admin panel texts like that: GA UNIQUE ID LABEL, LOG ADMIN AREA LABEL, etc. In version 0.6 it was working for me.

Secondly but with much higher priority. After enable GAPlugin my site stoped working. Completly. It doesn't open at all. Safari 5.0 reports such an error: NSURLErrorDomai n:-1015, Firefox says that I'm using unsupported methodes of compression, you should report it to administrator, etc., etc.

Any ideas?

With the newest version (0.9) I have discovered that the rendering of PDF files is corrupted. Also, any file type delivered by DocMan is corrupted. I tested with v0.6 and it's fine. I'll continue to test and look at the code, but if you have any guidance on this it would be appreciated.

I have installed your plugin, but want to see how I can use it from my admin panel. Do I need to embed it in an article or something? Simply, how to invoke your plugin. I did not face any installation issues.

Thanks
Raja

Just upgraded from 0.6 to 0.9. Found a small translation error in the dutch text that refers to 0.6
Vervolgens copieer je de volledige Google Analytics code in het tekstvak dat daarvoor voorzien is.
Should be:
Vervolgens kopieer je je UA-nummer in het tekstvak dat daarvoor voorzien is.

Furthermore I think that users that stay logged-in when remember me is activated in Joomla are not counted by Joomla. When i check my Joomla users last login date for a specific date I have at least 34 users that visited the site, Google analytics only gives a count of 14 for that same date.

@Astrid Please keep in mind Google Analytics by default may track your visits in Pacific standard time. That may explain differences in actual visits and numbers shown by Google Analytics.

@Astrid I am not sure why the numbers are different. Did you running try another Google Analytics plugin at the same time? The numbers should be almost exactly the same but with this extension a bit smaller to exclude your own visits to the site. Very often various other statistics software highly inflate the number of visitors and do not count them correctly.

@Roshlyn the plugin works fine on standard Joomla installations and the extensions that we use. Most likely there is some sort of conflict with another plugin that you have installed on your Joomla.

@Mergen: This is the only plugin I'm using. Before finding it I've manually added the tracking code in index.php but I removed it when I installed the plugin as this is a far better option. I could live with a small difference due to not counting super-administrator and time difference, but this difference really is too big.

@astrid please try installing another Google Analytics plugin to run alongside to test if the issue is with our plugin.
