Best Google Analytics Plugins for WordPress

Google Analytics can of course be integrated into WordPress WITHOUT a plugin. However, the use of special plugins can bring the following advantages:

  • No editing in the code
  • No binding to a theme
  • Mostly better control over DSGVO requirements
  • Mostly more/simpler possibilities to transfer additional data to GA
  • If necessary display of visitor statistics directly in WordPress

For this reason, I would like to compare different Google Analytics plugins here.
