MonsterInsights just introduced several exciting new features and enhancements for their awesome Google Analytics WordPress plugin. Version 7.4 comes with a shiny new setup wizard, improved affiliate tracking, and a new MemberPress integration.
Setup Wizard & Settings Panel
With the new MonsterInsights setup wizard, you can add and set up Google Analytics on your WordPress site in just five simple steps. The entire onboarding process will take less than five minutes.
After asking for the category of your WordPress site, the setup wizard will then recommend optimal settings for the Google Analytics plugin.
Improved Affiliate Tracking
MonsterInsights allows you to easily track all outbound links of your WordPress sites including custom branded affiliate links. Previously, you have been limited to just one prefix such as
/refer/. The improved affiliate tracking feature, however, now allows you to set multiple internal paths that can be tracked as affiliate links. This comes in quite handy if you are using an affiliate link management plugin such as Pretty Links for instance.
Additionally, they announced a new integration with MemberPress, a pretty popular WordPress membership plugin. The new Enhanced Ecommerce Integration for MemberPress allows you to get important ecommerce metrics such as total revenue, conversion rates, average order value, top products, and top referral sources right inside your WordPress dashboard.
Simply enable ecommerce tracking in your Google Analytics account and install the MonsterInsights Ecommerce add-on getting important store metrics. MonsterInsights will then automagically add proper tracking tags to your site.
