Analyze your site with the Google Site Kit plugin

Last Update: February 14, 2024

What is Google Site Kit?

Analyzing your site is an important aspect of growing your audience and your customer base. The statistics you need for this range from your site’s SEO scores to how fast your pages load. Google provides web creators with a wide range of tools used to collect and analyze this data, but sometimes it’s hard to keep track of all this information and where it’s coming from.

To make life easier for WordPress site owners, Google developed the Site Kit plugin which connects all these tools and displays the information you need in your WP Admin.

Set up Google Site Kit

This is comprised of several steps: 

  1. Install and activate the Site Kit
  2. Set up Site Kit
