Hi, I'm wondering if anyone has experience of the Google Analytics Dashboard for WP plugin. It allows you to track your traffic without navigating away from your WordPress dashboar

I agree with Beau below. It'll just add another plugin you don't need, especially since you can access the full version of analytics through Google.

Remember the more plugins you have running the slower your site will load. If its not strictly required I would not use it.

not really needed my friend. you can view your analytics by going straight to google. You are safe to leave it out..

Thank you, BeauAndNik. I was thinking about it really as a matter of convenience, so that, when working on the site, i can quickly see the analytics results right in my dashboard. Certainly not necessary, but handy! But I gather that having more than a few plugins can weigh down your site?

yup it sure can.. I got in to the habit of opening my site's and my google analytics all at the same time.. This is especially convenient when you have them all next to each other in your bookmark bar at the top of your browser :)

Yes, right now, I have too many tabs open in my browser, with the result that my Wordpress is on the far left and my Analytics is on the far right ... but I know what I should do about that!
