When I turned off Jetpack, one of the bits I lost was website statistics.

Not a problem. Google Analytics is a great web statistics solution. And it’s free. I’ve had a Google Analytics account all along. I’ve just been too lazy to bother with it.

In the spirit of keeping things lean and clean, I sat down to write my own quick WordPress plugin to pop the analytics tracking script onto my sites.

The result is a new field in the WordPress customizer’s default Site Identity panel where I can enter the site’s tracking ID. Just enter, save, and voila! Site stats!

Interested? Feel free to grab the code.
