Since I’m constantly trying to improve my workflow I’m always looking for new add-ons and extension to customize my Firefox installation.
Last time I wrote a list of the most useful Firefox SEO extensions, this time I’ll go through all the Firefox extensions for Google Analytics I’m currently using on my machine.
The main purpose of this extensions is to ease user’s life and also getting a better overview on Analytics: access quickly to custom reports, quickly identify domains, import and export data as fast as possible.
WASP: If it is not the best one from the lot, probably is the most complete of all. It’s not Google Analytics specific, you can use with pretty much any online marketing and analytics solution on the market. It comes with a standalone crawler and it can also provide detailed information about the data being collected trough Query String and Cookies by web analytics solutions (called “tags”, “trackers” or “web bug”) not only by Google Analytics.
GA: this tiny bit of code just tells you if Google Analytics is running on the page you currently visiting. Not big deal. Still useful for those who need to do some reverse web-engeneering… Here’s the author’s homepage.
Fire Analytics: Google Analytics gets as close as one click away with this extension. Set up your personal Analytics account and and flick through your stats straight from Firefox.
Better google analytics: awesome compilation of GreaseMonkey script to enhance your Google stats. It comes with media and social metrics, import&export of tables and dates.
Goal Copy: This extension basically is a work around for those who have a bunch of accounts with the same goals and want to manage them in the easiest way possible. It’s more for the pro-user with an intense use of Analytics, but it might come handy for the most as well.
Google Analytics Notes : this one is for those who have loads of accounts to manage and need to distinguish in between account leaving some notes around. Basically it adds a ‘Show Notes’ button in the GA menu ba. Here’s the author’s page.
Counterpixel: The tool tries to find counting/measurement pixel of tracking software from different services and companies. It’s a good alternative to Ghostery, which I have already mentioned on this post.
