How to Implement Author Level Tracking Using Analytify?

The Analytify WordPress plugin facilitates tracking at the author level. Author level tracking refers to providing individual authors access to the analytics of their specific posts or pages. By implementing this, each author can independently view and analyze the performance of their content. It includes metrics such as page views, sessions, bounce rates, and more. It helps authors understand their audience better and enables them to improve their content based on real-time data feedback.

This function is included in the free version, while the Analytify Pro Version delivers deeper statistics, including geographic, keywords, social media stats, and more.

This guide will teach you how to implement author level tracking.

How to Setup Authors Level Tracking (Step by Step)

Follow the below steps to turn on this feature.

Step 1: Install Analytify

First, ensure your WordPress site has the Analytify plugin installed and activated. Download Analytify – Google Analytics Dashboard For WordPress and upload the plugin to your WordPress dashboard by navigating to Plugins >> Add New.

We would highly recommend you to upgrade to Analytify Pro  if you’re keen on getting more in-depth author-level statistics. With the Pro version, authors gain access to detailed insights about their posts or pages, such as geographical data, keywords, social media stats, and so much more. Upgrading is a breeze – just head over to the Analytify website, purchase a Pro license, and then upgrade your existing plugin.
