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.
What is Content Performance?
Content Performance is WP Engine's Performance Intelligence solution that optimizes Google Analytics for WordPress. It enables marketers and content publishers to measure metrics including unique page views, time on page, and bounce rates against WordPress object types like Posts, Categories, Authors, Tags, and Pages. The data automatically stays in sync with the taxonomy of WordPress and is available right in your WordPress dashboard.
Our customers are benefitting
The data from Content Performance enables us to show how posts and categories are performing, track readership, and report back to our advertisers and sponsors. It allowed us to convey the opportunity to broaden content topics and more accurately track readership related to each category. This is all important as we start growing and monetizing our site.
Owners and editorial teams don’t have the time to stay plugged into analytics dashboards all day. Having a solution like Content Performance that provides a quick snapshot of relevant data is a strong value for us.
