How to Add Support for Display Advertising Code in Google Analytics for WordPress

It’s really simple to use Google’s Display Advertising code, so I thought I’d share how.

To enable the new GA features:

  1. Check the “Show Advanced Settings”
  2. Under “Advanced Settings,” check the checkbox for “Host ga.js locally:”
  3. In the text field that appears, enter: //stats.g.doubleclick.net/dc.js
    • Note: The missing http and https is intentional – if your site’s in secure mode, it will use https, otherwise http)
  4. Save your settings!

  1. This is a pretty terrible tip… “show advanced settings” where? What window are you in? Is this a settings menu? It’s like telling someone to “open up the book to page xxx” without telling then which book to open =/
