Google Analytics Data Now Accessible From Your Google+ Page Dashboard

SMS Text

Daniel Waisberg, Analytics Advocate at Google, broke the news on his Google+ page yesterday that Google Analytics data can now be viewed from your Google+ Page dashboard.

Pretty cool new addition to Google+ Page dashboards: if your page is linked to a website that has Google Analytics you can now view your monthly metrics (and comparison to last month) from your Google+ dashboard!

By the sound of this announcement, there’s absolutely no extra work needed other than linking your Google+ Page to your website. If the website connected to your Google+ page has analytics installed, then voila, a card with Google Analytics data will be added to your page. It looks something like this:

google plus analytics

You get three key metrics from the past 30 days at a glance including new visits, unique visitors and pageviews. What’s also key is you get a quick look at the percent of change compared to the previous month. If you need more info, there’s a convenient link to your full Google Analytics report.

The card comes with a helpful tool tip, which states:

This card shows Google Analytics data for the website associated with your Google+ page. To change the card view, please configure the default view under your Google Analytics property.

So the data that appears on the card cannot be changed within Google+, you have to go into Google Analytics to do that.

Just to be clear, this feature is only available on individual Google+ company pages, not personal pages. It sure would be useful if you could log into Google+ and get analytics information for websites you own, especially if you own multiple sites. That option isn’t available at this time, but hopefully some time in the future.

  • Google is very smart!! Most of the people don’t like Google+ that’s why Google is trying to attract people by providing new features.

    I love Facebook social network sites. Here is my story why I hate Google+. Once I have started using Google+. Everything was working fine but after few days, it banned me by alert message that you are doing spam on Google+. You can not post on Google+. Your all post will be deleted in 30 days. What is this??

    But the truth is that I have not done anything wrong with my Google+ profile. So, I hate Google policy. Google is trying to dominate each and every market. I don’t like this.

    I do SEO work and I know how Google is ruining SEO by updating its algorithm. The main motive of Google is only one i.e. earn money!! Earn money!!

    Don’t fall in trap of Google with this new feature. I suggest all people to use Facebook instead of Google+.
