Until now these analysis tools could be used externally or you needed to install several plugins on your website to be able to see everything easily through panels if you wanted to do it from the WordPress administrator.

We are going to see how this Google tool is installed and configured step by step, but if you want, you can also see this video where I explain the entire installation and configuration process of Google Site kit.
Install Site Kit by Google on WordPress
To start enjoying Google Site Kit in your WordPress installation, it is very simple since you just have to go to Plugins> Add new.
Write Site Kit and you can now install and activate this all-in-1 plugin.
When you activate it, on the side of your WordPress you will have a new option called Site kit.
To enjoy this tool, of course, you need to be registered in Google Search Console and Google Analytics with a Gmail account.
Thanks to that Gmail account you can link the Google Site Kit tool with all those tools in 3 easy steps.
Let’s see how it is configured.

Site Kit will guide you in 3 steps to configure your options.
The first window shows you a tab that you can activate if you want to provide data to the tool and that it can improve.

Let’s see the steps to follow.
That’s it, now you have associated the tool with the Google Search Console and you can see data, but you can also integrate Analytics or Adsense for example so that you have everything from the dashboard of your WordPress.
Site Kit Settings
In the Settings option, you can see the connected services or you can also associate the other tools offered by the Site kit.
The process is the same that we have been following so far.

In the same way that before we will be giving permissions at the click of a button and in a few seconds you will be able to enjoy the Google analytics tool in your WordPress administration panel.
If you have more than one analytics account associated with the same email, select the one on the website to integrate.

Also, observe where the majority of the traffic to your website comes from. In this way, you can take another series of strategies to get more traffic through SEO, social networks, email marketing, etc …
If your website has Google Adsense integrated, you need to link your account by installing the code throughout the web.
Once done you can associate Google Site Kit and have access to income and other options and opportunities to generate more income.
