Analytify : Best Google Analytics WordPress Dashboard Plugin

Google Analytics WordPress plugin

Your blog traffic statistics is one of the most important thing to grow your blog and when it comes to free analytic program, Google analytics is the best out there. For WordPress blog I personally use Google analytics and WordPress stats program. Analytify is one useful WordPress plugin for Google analytics users to check Google analytics stats right from the WordPress dashboard.

The reason Analytify deserves to be featured here is because it also let you check individual posts/pages stats from the post editor section. This is one particular feature that amused me the most and very handy for you. Earlier I talked about one Google Analytics JS bookmarklet which let you check stats of individual posts of your blog, and with this you can identify the posts which is not getting enough traffic from search engine. Basically I often used to use GA JS bokmarklet to identify the low-quality posts and now with Analytify WordPress plugin this task has become much easier. Here I’m sharing my review of Analytify plugin and let you decide if this $29 plugin is worth your money or not.

Analytify plugin review : Google Analytics inside WordPress dashboard

Analytify adds Google analytics stats at three different place in your WordPress dashboard.

  • Stand alone Google analytics dashboard inside WordPress
  • Stats in single post or page editor
  • Stats in front panel

Now let me show you how to configure this plugin for your blog, and how to use it. You can purchase the plugin for $29 from here and this includes life-time free updates. You can pick the plan which suits your needs.  Once you have downloaded the plugin, upload and install it on your blog. After activating the plugin, you need to give access to your Google analytics account by going to Analytify > Settings. Click on click here to authenticate and get the authentication code:

Now go to profile tab and select the Google analytics profile for your domain.

Now you need to configure the stats view for front end and back-end. Depending upon your usage, you can also configure the stats to be shown to visitors (Which I don’t recommend). Here you don’t need to make any changes and straight away start using Analytify WordPress plugin.

Go to Analytify > Dashboard to see your real-time Google analytics stats. You will be able to see all important stats from Google analytics account inside your WordPress dashboard. Below is a screenshot of just one part of the complete dashboard:

You can go to edit post section of any of your published post to see the Google analytics stats of that particular post. You can change dates to see stats for any specific time-peroid.

I have not included the complete image of Google analytics dashboard inside WordPress here, but you can go to this page and see the complete image of how Google analytics stats will be displayed inside your WordPress dashboard. The good thing about this plugin is it doesn’t slow down your WordPress blog, which is good for busy blogs.

If you are using Google analytics and have a WordPress blog Analytify is a useful plugin for you. You can occasionally check your old post stats and if they are not getting enough organic traffic, you can further optimise it for particular keyword and make it more targeted. I would suggest you to read following three articles to make most out of your old posts:

To end with, I would like to know how often do you check the traffic stats of your blog?

    Hey Harsh!

    Great job with the article. Just bought the license, but it’s no longer lifetime (or perhaps never was), but on a yearly renewal basis now :)
