Just install the plug-in, enable the plug-in in Joomla's plug-in manager and add in your account number in the parameters. Hit SAVE and you're done. Use CrazyEgg's installation checker to make sure your tacking code is working.
Finding Your CrazyEgg Account Number
To find your CrazyEgg account number, simply create a new tracking snapshot and setup the details as required. On the final page of snapshot creation, you will be presented with the CrazyEgg tracking code and also your account number.
Simple copy that 8 digit account number and save it in the parameters for the plug-in under the Plug-in Manager in Joomla and away you go.
CrazyEgg allows you to track your users clicks on a website. This is especially useful when analysing page layouts and the effectiveness of page elements to call a user to an action. To find out more about CrazyEgg and its tracking capabilites, please visit crazyegg.com

Normally we would embed the Google Analytics tracking code in to the template of each of the sites that we are build. In some circumstances we'd find that the end user would want more control over the Google Analytics code and would prefer to switch it on and off or insert new tracking code at their own will. So we've compiled this little plugin that allows for just that. Loading the Google Analytics code asynchronously allows for the rest of your site to load while the analytics code loads in the background and thus increasing the loading speed of your site by a few seconds. Since Google now actively looks at your websites loading performance to calculates its search engine rankings, this plug-in is well worth a try.
This plugin now has a pro version that allows you to fine tune your Google Analytics configuration.
