This article will explain what the Google Site Kit is, the premium tools it offers to improve your website and how you can install the plugin.

What is the Google Site Kit Plugin?

For WordPress users looking for an easy way to seamlessly integrate Google services into their website, the wait is over.

Google officially launched its Site Kit WordPress plugin October 31, which enables users to setup and configure key Google services, get insights on how people find and use their site, learn how to improve, and easily monetize content.

No matter what kind of WordPress website you have, Site Kit can help you. From small business to a developer, from newbie to advanced, Site Kit has tools for users of all types and all levels to elevate their website. 

Now, users can easily set up Google tools on their site and see everything in a single WordPress Dashboard, all without any code editing required.

Premium Tools

Packaged in the plugin are four of Google’s most helpful tools for WordPress users.

  • Search Console – Measures your site’s Google Search traffic and performance
  • Analytics – Tells you how users find, use, and engage with your site
  • PageSpeed Insights – Analyzes your site and suggests ways to make it faster
  • AdSense – Helps you to earn money from your online content

The Site Kit plugin was originally announced at the 2018 WordCamp US, and released in beta as a developer preview at WordCamp EU in June 2019. 

After six month in beta and allowing developers to install, utilize and offer feedback, Google claims it has significantly simplified the setup flow, eliminated several bugs and polished the main user flows.

Install and Use

Installing the plugin is super simple, too, and can be done in just three easy steps. After a few clicks, users can quickly access their data and set up additional modules as they go in order to gain additional insights about their site.

The insights are clearly laid out and easy to understand, giving users a comprehensive look at their website. Google will also send snapshots straight to users’ WordPress dashboard any time they see success from their site. 

With so many free, helpful tools, it’s easy to see why the release of Google’s Site Kit plugin has been so highly-anticipated. 

If you’re using WordPress, utilizing key plugins such as Google Site Kit can make it not only easier to set up and run your website, but the functionalities can help achieve your business goals. 

And if you’re not on WordPress, what are you waiting for?
