Which features does Analytics Cat Google Analytics have?

How to use Analytics Cat Google Analytics?

There are multiple ways to add the Google Analytics tracking code to your WordPress site.

1. Pasting your Google Analytics script into your theme
This approach isnt great for two reasons:
a) If you edit your live site and make a mistake when pasting your Google Analytics script into your theme, you could take down your website.
b) If your theme is updated with new features or security fixes, your Google Analytics code will be overwritten.

2. Pasting your Google Analytics script into a header/footer script plugin
This is a valid approach, but has some disadvantages. General purposes header script plugins arent built from the ground-up to support Google Analytics.

What this means is that :
a) These plugins lack Google Analytics-specific functionality.
b) These plugins will not adapt if Google Analytics changes again. Since Analytics Cat is a dedicated Google Analytics WordPress plugin, well make sure make sure to stay compatible with future changes to Google Analytics.
c) These plugins usually dont support hiding your Google Analytics code from logged-in users.

3. Using Some Other Google Analytics WordPress Plugin
There are some good Google Analytics plugins out there, but many of them are bloated, have too many settings and are slow.
