Google Site Kit
So, if you are a website owner, developer, an agency. All can take advantage of this kit – it is easy to set up, a dashboard displaying easy-to-read stats, and metrics to the entire website.
A description of all the tools available with Google Site Kit may be seen below:
Google Search Console
The Search console includes many features that enable you to monitor the performance of your website. You can see which queries are bringing people to your website.
Because this information is critical for SEO, Site Kit includes it by default. If you find this type of information useful or interesting for your site, you can find even more in Google Search Console’s full version.
The Google Analytics section of Site Kit will provide you with more information about where different users came from. What countries send you visitors? Did they come from a search, a link somewhere else, or did they go straight to your site by typing a URL into their browser? And what devices are they using to access your website: desktop or mobile?
When you install Site Kit, it will automatically add Search Console and Google Analytics. The remaining tools are optional, and you can connect them in the backend of your WordPress site by going to Site Kit > Settings.
If you have a website, you probably want to make money from it. One of the simplest ways to accomplish this is to enable AdSense, Google’s advertising service. This allows Google to display relevant ads on your pages. And if people click on them, you’ll be compensated.
When you use AdSense, you can easily track the performance of your advertising with Site Kit.
Do you want Google to rank your pages high? Then you must ensure that they load quickly for your users. When you enable PageSpeed Insights in Google Site Kit, you’ll be able to see how your homepage performs for real users who visit your site. Is there anything important that could be improved? If there are, you’ll receive helpful recommendations to help you make your site load faster and more smoothly.
To get the most out of this tool, you’ll probably need some developer skills or technical SEO knowledge.
Google Tag Manager
Tag Manager is a tool for creating marketing tags that allow you to track the effectiveness of your marketing efforts. You probably don’t need these if you don’t do any marketing. However, if you do, tags allow you to track what works (and what doesn’t). That stuff can be quite technical to set up, so if you’re not an expert, Tag Manager is a great solution. Site Kit can assist you in getting everything set up from your site’s backend.
You can easily set up Optimize and run tests on your site with Site Kit. You can also use Optimize in conjunction with Google Analytics to identify areas for improvement and track the progress of your adjustments. Additionally, if you utilize AdSense, you may use Optimize to improve the effectiveness of your ads.
