SMNTCS Google Analytics


Google Analytics
Google Analytics is one of the best tracking systems available. It allows you to analyse how you visitors found you, via which pages they enter your site, via which pages they leave your site and which pages they visit during their session.

SMNTCS Google Analytics

SMNTCS Google Analytics enables you to add the Google Analytics tracking code to your website.

IP Anonymisation

Since version 2.0 it’s possible to anonymise the IP of your visitor, which is required by law in some countries.


  • Paste your Google Analytics tracking code in the Customiser


  1. Upload smntcs-google-analytics to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress
  3. Go to, add a new site and copy the tracking code
  4. Go to Appearance → Customize → Google Analytics and paste your tracking code
  5. Anonymise visitors’ IP address if necessary


Why am I not able to save the verification code?

This issue might be caused by a security plugin. If you use a security plugin, e.g. Wordfence, then disable it. Save your verification code and activate it once you’re done.

I'm running this now on one of my websites and it's so much more simple than adding the code manually to the header / footer tag. Thanks for streamlining my day!
