This is a review of Analytify, which is a WordPress Plugin for Google Analytics
Analytiy ( shown below )
Analytify, is a free plugin, which quite literally brings Google Analytics to your WordPress dashboard
which means if you are frequently using Google Analytics, you will know how labour intensive it can be doing this
It was installed following a recommedation from a business associate of mine and to be truthful his enthusiasm for it told only half the story
Lets look at it in more detail. though in truth, pardon the pun, it only gives a you a slight picture!
The General Dashboard Area ( below )
Is laid out nicely in easy to read sections, so you can see at a glance the information you would need immediately
This information includes your bounce rate, which is what Google uses as one of the measuring factors when it comes to ranking your website
Now you might wonder, if your blog actually gets seen across the globe, but as you will see from the picture below
The coloured areas are where your blog is actually seen, so you know that it works for sure
In fact, this Video shows a live demonstration of this
Moving further down to the bottom of the dashboard area, you will see the Traffic Referrals section
This is invaluable information, because its all well and good knowing that your blog is being seen across the globe, but you want to know which traffic refferals sources work the best, so you can maximise your time and effort productively
As you will see from the above graph, the traffic sources which work the best, are shown in all their glory
They show, YouTube as being the top social media traffic source, with a manual surf traffic exchange also providing some decent traffic to the site as well
If you are are a lover of stats, then this section alone, is proof that Analytify is worth its weight in gold.
Overall, Analytify is a must have plugin to have your Google Analytics imported into the dashboard area of your WordPress blog
If you are unsure about going Pro with Analytify, then my strong suggestion, as it is with any plugin, that is 'pushing' you to go Pro, is to try it out for either a trial period if there is one, or failing that, give it a go for 14 days initially, by which time you should be using it at least daily.
That action would then create a 90 day action, by which time you would know if you want to go Pro or Not
As with most godo quality WordPresss Plugins and Themes, going for the paid version, is usually the better bet, as it makes your WordPress Experience much easier and ...Fun!!
