I had used the old plugin forever.
Now suddenly with "ExactMetrics", a simple plugin that worked perfectly to link sites to Google Analytics has become something messy, that requires me to "link" all sites to ExactMetrics... Arrgh.
As if it is not enough to have everything linked to Google, now suddenly your information has to be linked to a different company as well.
Plus, it has a constant bombardment to upgrade to the "Pro" version.
You guys do realize that you are "upselling" and wanting to charge people merely to replace something that is really only a tiny, tiny snippet of code that anyone, even the most non-technical person, can find on the Google Analytics site for simple cutting and pasting?
Making a business out of inserting that tiny, already free, snippet of code from Google is really merely preying on innocent WP site owners.
This plugin is immediately removed from all my sites.
No way am I linking myself and my sites to yet another company, trying to overcomplicate something already exceedingly simple, just to make a buck.
If ExactMetrics wanted to create a business out of pasting in that snippet, then start with a new plugin and try to sell your "services".
Don't overtake what WAS a nice plugin with a very simple purpose just to have a "free" door into Wordpress sites through all the sites already using the original plugin.
Autoupdates when disabled!

This plugin does autoupdates even when "Auto-updates disabled" marked in the plugins list of WP and at the settings page the option "None - Manually update everything." is selected.
Bizarre marketing: give little, push relentlessly
By Ali.T. (polaatx) on October 22, 2022
I finally got rid of this plugin. It has the most transparently greedy marketing strategy. The free version gives you minimal data, less that the great and free Google SiteKit. Basically it is a shameless marketing tool to sell the pro version. Almost every link is useless if you don't want to cough up money. Over and over you click and all you get are links to the purchase pro version. The dashboard panel is ridiculous. The giant ads below are larger than the data panel! Why would anyone give away so much valuable real-estate on their dashboard to a shameless advertiser? It is such a turnoff, i never even considered the pro version.
Doing great job as expected

I love seeing the metrics right on the dashboard!
I use the Pro version for more than two years now without any problem, with support voor G4. Last week I had a problem and the support from Exact Metrix replied within a couple of hours. After some conversation it seems the problem was with Google not with EM. I would recommend EM, it does a very good job, so 5 stars from me ....
I'm like many others. The previous version of this plugin was great, until it became Exact Metrics.... Then, my WP dashboard just gotten taken over by ads.... It's like you have to play a "game" closing all the MULTIPLE pop-up dialogues for upgrading just to get normal work done on the site.... And while you're working, MORE ads start appearing!....
I run a small, non-profit website.... I don't need the "advanced" features being promoted...
PLEASE allow me to either turn the pop-ups off or create a "non-profit" version of the plugin or something.
Until then, this plugin remains DISABLED on my site....
I have been using ExactMetrics for over a year now. I compared two plugins during that time to determine which one would supply me with the information I needed. After the year I determined that ExactMetrics was the one for me and my business. I would highly recommend ExactMetrics for you and for your business. A huge thank you to the entrie ExactMetrics team. Keep up the great work!
Plugin used to be nice and clean. Looks horrible now.
