What Is Flying Analytics?

Flying Analytics is a WordPress plugin that stops the errors in the pagespeed reports referring to Analytics and Google Tag Manager. It is the easiest step in the pagespeed guide, taking only a minute to integrate.

Most people do not realize that using Google’s tracker tools such as Analytics or Tag Manager hurt your pagespeed. This is because the JS programs used for all of the tracking on your website are really big. It’s ironic, but Google’s own tools impacts both the UX and effectiveness against their own search algorithm. If you go and do a Page Experience or GT Metrix test, look for the warnings regarding Analytics and Tag Manager. In fact, all trackers hurt your website (Zapier, FB Pixel etc) – but Google’s are the most impactful.

Luckily there is a fix for this – Flying Analytics.

This plugin stops your website reaching out to the Google servers and downloading the JS files every time your page gets a hit. Instead, it downloads the files to your server, and works internally. It then sends the data back to Google so your tracking still works – except this time you are not accessing big JS files remotely. It gets rid of the errors, is simple to implement, and just works.

Using Flying Analytics

Flying Analytics Instructions

How Do I Set It Up?

Flying Analytics is incredibly easy to setup. All you have to do is install it, then go to the plugin settings under ‘Settings / Flying Analytics’. Then all you do is put in your tracking code (usually starting with U-) and that’s it!

What’s The Javascript Method?

Flying Analytics can download different versions of Analytics. It all depends on how much tracking you do, and what type of tracking you need. 99% of users just need minimal analytics as it still tracks the people, locations, entry and exit pages etc. This one is only 1.4kb so is recommended for most people.

The full analytics.js file is for more in depth tracking but most people will not need this. The largest file is the G-Tag one. Use this is you are using Google Tag Manager. Whilst it is much larger than the standard Analytics one, it is still significantly faster than loading it up from Google.

Inline JS is not recommended – just use the minimal JS instead.

If you have previously put your Analytics code into your website header template as instructed by Google, take it out. You won’t need it there and it will continue to call the code if you leave it in and you will not see any improvement. Remember to test it once you have logged out of WordPress!
