With the plugin installed on your website, you will be able to safely link your account and view insights from all of the Google tools, without having to visit each of them separately.
The plugin also includes some other useful features, such as one click access to analytics for individual posts/pages on the admin bar.
“Managing a successful website can be complicated. Publishers and business owners should have easy access to the insights and capabilities that drive audience and revenue growth. That’s why we’re excited to announce Site Kit by Google, a free, open-source plugin bringing together insights from essential Google products for WordPress sites.”
Site Kit shows key metrics and insights from four different Google products:
Understand how Google’s systems discover and render your pages. Track how many people saw your site in Search results, and for what queries.
See how users navigate across your site and if they complete the goals you have set as conversions.
Keep track of how much your site is earning you. Or if you haven’t yet, make your good content work for you by setting up an AdSense account.
See how your pages perform compared to other real-world sites. Improve performance with actionable tips from PageSpeed Insights.
