Ready to get started with the best Google Analytics Dashboard plugin for WordPress? It’s easy to do in just a few clicks.

To get started, navigate to the site where you want to install ExactMetrics and log in to the WordPress admin dashboard.

  2. Remove any other Google Analytics plugins, OR disable the tracker on the other GA plugins if you’re going to use ExactMetrics’ tracker. (You can use the Tag Assistant Plugin for Chrome by Google to make sure only one UA code is tracking when you’re logged out or viewing in incognito mode.)
