RIP: Excellent Analytics Open Source Plugin
As of April 20, 2015, Google turned off the old ClientLogin authentication used by the plugin, so you will get an “Invalid password / username” error. The development of the add-in was never really picked up by the community, so it’s design was already outdated by the time that happened.
Fixing the login problem was a small part of the work required to get the plugin working again, so Analytics Edge created a free replacement for it: a better Google Analytics plugin for Excel; one that is easy to use and unlimited. It is not a limited version of a paid product like Supermetrics, or difficult to figure out like the Google Analytics Spreadsheet Add-on. It is Simply Free.
