Google’s John Mueller felt the need to explain on Twitter that there is no penalty for using or not using Google Analytics on your web site. Google doesn’t rank a web site any better or worse because you use or don’t use Google Analytics.
Here is John’s tweet:

Just to be clear: there’s no penalty for using or not using GA with regards to search.

He did add that it does help uncover information about your web site and gives you insights into making your web site better:

GA can give you lots of insights about your site & how users enjoy it, but it’s not required for search.

But having the Google Analytics snippet in your HTML doesn’t give you a ranking boost or ranking decline.
