I signed up for Google Analytics using my google account using analytics.google.com. After going through the signup process in which I used my website address, I had my Google Analytics account ready with my unique tracking ID. This tracking ID is used to uniquely identify my analytics account and track everything to it. I used this tracking ID later on Google Analytics Dashboard Plugin for WordPress by MonsterInsights.
I then installed Google Analytics Dashboard Plugin for WordPress by MonsterInsights. This plugin has a nice wizard to set it up. I used that launch wizard to verify its settings and connect my Google Analytics account with it.
This plugin by MonsterInsights got my unique tracking ID and implemented in my site in every page and also its very own advanced click monitoring and file download monitoring.
I used this guide to install, setup and know everything about the plugin by MonsterInsights. This guide has been really helpful in understanding Google Analytics.
I can see the analytics in Google Analytics account but with this plugin by MonsterInsights, I can also see all the analytics in my WordPress dashboard.
