  1. Dear Madam, dear Sir,
    We would like to try ExactMetrics for free for our website.
    Let me know how it works.
    Kind regards,
    Maxime Steffan

    1. Hi Anjanesh,
      Thanks for your question! ExactMetrics provides a lot more reports within your WordPress dashboard, and the opportunity to set up many more features, like eCommerce tracking, form conversion tracking, and more. With Site Kit, you get a really basic report and not much else. Also, Site Kit doesn’t work with Google Analytics 4 yet! It’ll connect GA4 to your site, but it won’t show you any report.

  2. I want to use the free exactmetrics lite to test it on two sites. Do I need two google email addresses to do so? If so i won’t be installing. I tried yesterday to link a second website to you guys, the first website is already linked via google, but i can only see the first website as a “project” or whatever you call it in the dropdown menu. So i uninstalled on both websites. Did i miss something? Please let me know. Lastly, i give you permission to use my data and email address ONLY to address this comment. NO spam ever.
