Reviews

Great plugin with fantastic support.

By theproject295 on January 20, 2023

We’ve been using this plugin for awhile now and to have this amount of tracking and metrics infos within WordPress is very helpful and handy. But where I’m most satisfied with, is support. Michelle recently helped us navigate efficiently through our tracking and site’s URL challenges caused by a number of reasons (mostly user error). Happy to report that our tracking/analytics are back on "track" and that our site’s URLs are clean again! Very happy with support : ) Thx Michelle!

goede plugin

makkelijk en goed overzichtelijk.

Paywall

By witty42 on January 11, 2023

I don't understand, for what has this plugin so many stars. Absolutely useless. Adds a lot of static trash code to the page and shows only paywall - just wants to take your money.

Terrible waste of time.

By TekGirlyMama on January 6, 2023

With the "free" version you waste time, allow them to see all you data and get nothing in return but lousy minimal info. Just head over to Analytics and see all data for free.

Poor Google Analytics wrapper

By 4lfant on January 4, 2023

So it's just a Google Analytics wrapper that blocks 90% of analytics data behind paywall. And in total shows 2 chars and 3 lists on overview tab.

How does it have good reviews at all? I just can install GA and get all the same data free.

Long overdo!

Happy New Year MonsterInsights!

I was just looking at the 2022 Analytics Report that you fine folks at MonsterInsights left for me. I moved back from New Jersey 14 months ago, and right after that I picked up a subscription to your product. I'm heading for seventy in the not so distant future, and I have really stopped pushing like I used to?

I guess I just don't see the real purpose in pushing at this point in time. There's still plenty I have to learn, and if I had a guy like, Syed, nearby I would probably drive him crazy. I love your products, and there are many, but MonsterInsights is a no-brainer to me. It does exactly what I want and need it to do for me. I get data for all of my users from around the globe, and it's done in a neat easy to understand format.

I see my users, sessions, pageviews, bounce rate, total users, average session duration, Countries, Device breakdown (Tablet, desktop, mobile)

I realize that I pay to use these tools, I also understand how valuable it is to me when I have all of this data at my fingertips whenever I need it. When your working closely with a website doing a thorough optimization you would be flying blind without this data available to you.

I want to see the traffic stirring when I am doing work on keywords and closely following my position with the search engines. Without this data I may not know that Google is really sending me hardly any traffic just yet.

I also understand that with a fairly new site, Structured Data, and Core Web Vitals really being enforced now. It actually caught up to my sites the very end of May 2022. My traffic began to plummet.

I wasn't even sure what was happening, it was the Structured Data that got me first, and the CWV at the end of summer, September. It is wasn't for MonsterInsights, and even more on MonsterInsights. I emailed Syed one of the Top Dogs, and I don't think it was even Syed that answered the email, and I actually reached out to them for some assistance.

This had nothing to do with their product. I was scratching my head over several things regarding the Structured Data, and the CWV and those guys went out of their way to help me. I live alone these days, I love working online, and as I get older I seem to pay attention a bit more than I used to?

If you work online and you pay attention you begin to see the Teams of people in most cases, that are banging out some decent products and really putting things back into the online community. In any event, it's a New Year, and I thought what better way to start it, than by giving some credit where I truly believe some credit is warranted.

As my old coach was always yelling "Plenty of Hustle" The winners do not let any grass grow under their feet.

Be carefull: adds lots of other plugin's!

By cappersg on December 30, 2022

Just installed this plugin. I was really surprised it did install 4 (!) different plugin's, all asking to be upgraded to a Pro version on every page in the dashboard. De-installed 3 of them, hope the remaining one (MonsterInsight) does what it promises without the "support" of all the other bullshit.....

Easy, and it just works

By hotpixels on December 22, 2022

This plugin works great, and it doesn't crash my wordpress with every upgrade like Site Kit by Google

Extrarodinario trabajo

By malvinramirez on December 15, 2022

Me encanta cómo funcionan y cómo trabajan, son un aliado muy interesante para la plataforma. Les felicito mucho, agradeciendo la oportunidad de poder crecer juntos.

Makes understanding your audience a breeze

By hkindy on December 14, 2022

I have been using this plug-in since I launched my website around 3 years back, it has been great at providing me with management insight helping me navigate google analytics data with a clean and uncluttered user interface. While google analytics itself will provide more in-depth data, most small business owners will not have the capability to interpret the excessive amount of data. This plug-in gives you the summary high level report with main information you need in an easy to read and understand way. The technical support team is also out of this world as they are responsive and take each support request seriously and do not give you generic answers like some other plug-in tech support teams I have dealt with.
