Google Site Kit is an official plugin from Google that helps you integrate data and features from multiple Google tools into your WordPress dashboard.
Google Site Kit was in closed beta for a long time. But as of November 2019, it’s now publicly available to all WordPress users and listed for free at WordPress.org.
What is Google Site Kit for WordPress?
Google Site Kit helps you connect your WordPress site to six different Google services:
- Search Console
- PageSpeed Insights
- Tag Manager
Sometimes, in the case of Tag Manager and Optimize, all it does is help you verify your site but still requires you to use the tool’s website to perform actions.
But for Search Console, Analytics, AdSense, and PageSpeed Insights, you’ll actually be able to view basic data for your site from inside your WordPress dashboard, which is super convenient.
For example, you can see a list of your site’s search queries, or your most popular pages in Google Analytics.
Overall, it’s a really convenient tool for letting you access all the main Google services from right inside your WordPress dashboard.
