Tutorial for WordPress analytics with the DELUCKS SEO Plugin

Track your visitor numbers and learn, how to improve your WordPress website and contents. Use the statistics widget of our SEO plugin and combine it with Google Analytics.

Internal Statistics

We developed an own user counter with a dashboard statistics widget for WordPress, which cares 100% about data privacy: it doesn’t log any personal information. We just count the amount of all visits there, to offer you a trend analysis.

Why? Because this is the only way to track information without saving cookies or other personal data of your visitors in a WordPress site. In some branches and countries this is necessarily for data privacy.

In our WordPress dashboard widget you can then see all information. You can also select, which users may not see this widget. You don’t need to adapt your data privacy policy, when this function is activated.

You can exclude specific user groups from being tracked. You can also select, to which user groups the dashboard widget is being displayed. To clean your statistics database, your can empty it here.

Tracking Codes

Insert Google Analytics, Piwik, etc. tracking codes here. These tools are much more extensive than ours, but very often need cookie hints and data privacy statements.

If you implement Google Analytics, you can anonymize the IP addresses of your visitors by activating the checkbox for that. Then the last numbers of their IP addresses will be removed. You can also track outbound links and downloads by activating the checkbox and learn more about the traffic for other sources.

You can also track outbound clicks and downloads by activating the option. Then you receive additional data in Google Analytics.

Host Analytics local

For best leading times we recommend to host the Google analytics.js file local on your website. Just activate the function and the loading time will though be improved.

Hint: please set up a cronjob to update the analytics.js file on a weekly basis. Copy the code after “Please setup cronjob:” and paste it as the script in a new cronjob, which you set up in your webhosting service or under Cron-Job.org. The cronjob should then look like this:

If you don’t feel comfortable with the cronjob setup please contact your web hoster or a web developer and ask for help.
