Better data insights for a smarter content strategy
The WP Engine platform enables secure, high performing sites through development agility and the intelligence needed to drive your business forward.
We believe WordPress site analytics should include daily insights for marketers, digital strategists, and publishers on how their content is performing. WP Engine created Content Performance to give you accurate data that can have an impact on your business, deliver stronger digital experiences, and drive higher brand engagement and ROI.
