Let’s start with the benefits of having a stats dashboard baked right into your WP admin:

  • Ease of Use: Easy installation, setup, and tracking of advanced metrics such as ecommerce, forms, and downloads. You don’t have to mess around with code anymore.
  • Time-saving: No need to log into your GA dashboard anymore. To be honest, how often do you really check your Google Analytics account? Now you can see all your stats at a glance when writing a blog post or processing a WooCommerce order.
  • Beginner-friendly: Especially for newbies, Google Analytics can be overwhelming with too much information. MonsterInsights, however, comes with beautiful, clean, and comprehensive (custom) dashboards.

In one of our previous posts we showed you how to install MonsterInsights on your WordPress site. It’s one of the most powerful Google Analytics plugins for WordPress. Once installed, you’ll see a widget with the most important site statistics in your WP dashboard.

  • Total sessions & pageviews for the last 30 days
  • Average session duration
  • Bounce rate
  • Top posts/pages
  • New vs. returning visitors
  • Device breakdown

As you can see in the screenshot above, the dashboard widget can easily be customized as per your needs. Do you want additional reports to be shown in the dashboard widget such as Publishers and eCommerce reports? Simply add them with just a few clicks.

Additionally, you can view your statistics in custom dashboards by going to Insights > Reports. Basically, it’s your “Google Analytics dashboard inside your WordPress dashboard”. There, you’ll see the five reports including Overview, Publishers, eCommerce, Search Console, Custom Dimensions, and Form Tracking.
