custom dimensions

On top of the features of our Google Analytics by Yoast plugin, our Premium plugin adds the most awesome feature to track so called custom dimensions. These custom dimensions allow the plugin to specify meta data such as the author of a post. This in turn allows you to track pageviews per author, per category, per post type, for logged in users versus not logged in users and even per date of publication. So you could compare your posts published in 2014 with those published in 2013.

Setting up these custom dimensions is not hard but it needs you to go into the Google Analytics Admin. We’ve created a guide on how to setup custom dimensions for use with the plugin as well as a guide on where to find the reports in Google Analytics.
