Analytify simplifies Google Analytics for WordPress users, presenting data in an easy-to-understand format on the backend, under WordPress posts/pages, and on its own dedicated dashboard. 

This article will guide you in using Analytify Advanced Shortcodes to display unique visitor website statistics, a key indicator of website traffic, in your WordPress posts. This includes the important metric of “totalUsers”, providing a comprehensive view of your audience reach.


The Advanced Analytify Shortcode

Here is an Advance Analytify shortcode to extract and display unique visitor statistics:

The following code should be copied:


Parameters of the Shortcode

  1. metrics: Describe the kind of measure you want to show. Here, “totalUsers” represents the number of unique visitors.
  2. date_type: Establishes the data’s date range. We are using “custom” in this case, which enables us to specify a certain date range.
  3.  The start_date and end_date: This segment provides a specific date range for your data. “YYYY-MM-DD” should be used to format the dates.

The above shortcode will provide the total number of unique visitors (“totalUsers”) from Google Analytics for the specified period frame, beginning June 1, 2023, and ending July 30, 2023.
