Although it may not be perfect for formal data detailing, it is a useful dashboard to remain over site performance measurements.
On Oct. 31, Google reported the release of its Site Kit WordPress module that, “empowers you to set up and design key Google services, get understandings on how individuals discover and utilize your site, figure out how to enhance, and effectively monetize your content.”
This plugin enables you to effortlessly associate the accompanying Google Services in a dashboard group within your WordPress backend:
