Today I am going to share very important plugin information which is essential to all website owners using google analytics. I think tracking of a website is essential to check who are our visitors as it helps us to improve our website content.
Here I will tell you some important information about “Google Analytics Dashboard” for WordPress. To install it you have to search it on plugins section of your dashboard. “Plugins -> Add New” and type “Google Analytics Dashboard for WP”. Then click on the install now button.
As soon as you install plugin activate it. You will get “Google Analytics” tab in your dashboard menu. Go to “Google Analytics -> General Settings” and authorize your plugin.

You can get an access code by hitting “Accept” accept button. You will get the code then use that code in the respective field. And “Save Access code”.
