Frequently Asked Questions

GInsights Analytics

  • Can I run GInsights together with another Google Analytics plugin?

    It is not recommended, using another Google Analytics plugin together with GInsights can interfere with tracking and skew your data.

    We recommend uninstalling other Google Analytics plugins before you install GInsights.

  • Will GInsights slow down my site?

    No. Only very specific tracking is loaded where needed while visitors are browsing your site, and this helps keep our script size as optimized as possible.

    We load the Google Analytics script directly from Google, since it’s used on millions of sites. This means the script is most likely already cached in your visitors’ browsers.

    When you’re logged into your Statamic admin, and looking at reports, GInsights is built using a modern JavaScript framework that makes it fast to load async without using up a lot of resources.

  • Why is the tracking code loaded in the head section of the site?

    This allows for other Google Analytics plugins and our addons to track things like downloads and eCommerce transactions, by ensuring that the Google Analytics script is loaded before anything else tries to use it. As it is an asynchronous Javascript snippet, it does not slow down the speed of your site loading.
