Easily See Google Analytics Statistics for Joomla Pages

Google Analytics can tell you how many times users visits different pages on your website.

In this tutorial, I'm going to show you how to enable this feature directly within your Chrome browser. As you browse around your Joomla site, you'll be able to easily see statistics for any page you're viewing.

You need to have an existent Google Analytics account with at least one website already integrated with Google Analytics. For Joomla users, Shack Analytics is a great choice.


Install Page Analytics (by Google) extension

In your Google Chrome browser, go to the Page Analytics (by Google) page, and add the extension.
