Wouldn’t it be great to be able to access your WordPress site’s Google analytics right from your dashboard? Well now you can with the Googlyzer plugin. This sweet tool makes it super simple to view key Google analytics within your WordPress Admin console. Just upload and install, and Googlyzer will add an administrative dashboard with microcharts for tracking your Google Analytics traffic data. You’ll never have to leave your WordPress dashboard to view your analytics data again.
Within the plugin options, you will be able to specify your Google Analytics account, website profile and desired date range for data display. Once you get set up, you’ll be able to see the latest data any time you access the analytics panel.
How It Works
Using an open souce jQuery plugin called Sparkline with the Google Analytics API, Googlyzer creates a dashboard of charts in order to show analytics for a specific website profile. This does require that you have a pre-existing Google Analytics account with some analytics history.
How It Looks
Check out the dashboard analytics Googlyzer creates for you:
Analytic Charts and Tables Include:
- Visits by Browser (pie chart %)
- Total Pageviews (sparkline chart)
- Total Visitors (sparkline chart)
- Total New Visits (sparkline chart)
- Traffic Sources (pie chart %)
- Visitors per Day (sparkline chart)
- Pageviews per Day (sparkline chart)
- New Visits per Day (sparkline chart)
- Bounce Rate % (sparkline chart)
- Top 5 Most Popular Pages by Pageviews (table)
- Top 5 Keyword Searches by Search Count (table)
Because Googlyzer doesn’t cache the analytics data or save it locally, the analytics charts are refreshed each time you access the console. You can use the preset date range of 30 days or customize your own timeframe for analysis.
No matter how you slice it, Googlyzer is a great efficiency tool. Use it to cut one more window and login page out of your daily routine and start accessing your Google Analytics directly from your WordPress dashboard.
