For 2019 Google will be rolling out a new WordPress plugin that allows users to see insights from a selection of Googles tools and products directly from the WordPress Admin dashboard.
Site Kit by Google allows users to access information directly in WordPress for Google Analytics, AdSense, Search Console and PageSpeed Insights.
“With Site Kit installed, WordPress users can access unified insights and Google product capabilities directly from the WordPress admin panel. Where it is helpful, Site Kit will also provide deep links into Google products for advanced reports and product configuration capabilities.”
It is worth noting that Site Kit doesn’t add any new insights that are not already available in Google’s tools, but Site Kit is ideal for WordPress website owners who want easily accessible information about audience and revenue performance, all in one place.
One such example is that users can navigate to a page on their website and click on the Site Kit button in the admin panel to see stats for that specific page. These stats will include Impressions, Clicks, Unique Visitor information and Average Time spent on that specific page.
The plugin will also notify users when they’ve hit publishing milestones and show combined stats for the most recently published posts. Google plans to expand Site Kit’s capabilities and integrations in the future based on feedback from beta testers. Google has stated that 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. Google will release Site Kit to beta testers in early 2019. Those who are interested in the plugin can sign up for the beta version here.
