There may be times when you need to export and share your Google Analytics reports on your WordPress site – like when you are reporting to someone, creating presentations, sharing site analytics and performance data with team members or business partners, and more. The last time I faced this situation was when I was working on improving the site performance and ranking for a list of event sites and had to submit weekly reports to my manager. Ah, another one comes to my mind.
Sometime back, I had received an email from a business with a proposal – they wanted to collaborate with me on a special piece but under one condition. I had to meet a specific number of site visitors from one particular country. During times like this, a Google Analytics report might come in handy.
In this post, I am going to show you how you can export your Google Analytics data straight from your WordPress dashboard and from your Google Analytics account.
Method 1 – Using MonsterInsights
MonsterInsights is a powerful Google Analytics plugin for WordPress. The reason why I am calling it powerful is because, it adds a lot of features to your WordPress site which otherwise by default is not supported by WordPress and/or Google Analytics and does not come with support for it out of the box.
MonsterInsights deeply integrates Google Analytics within your WordPress site, especially when you are using the premium version. Although you don’t need to be on a premium plan to get your reports and site data, it has got its own perks like scroll depth tracking, custom events tracking, enhanced eCommerce tracking, and more. You can read all about it in my MonsterInsights review.
If you are using MonsterInsights on your site, go to Insights –> Reports from your WordPress dashboard and click on the Export PDF Report button at the top.
Or if you prefer to get weekly summaries of what’s going on with the site, you can enable email summaries by going to Insights –> Settings –> Advanced and turning on the Enable Email Summaries toggle.
Method 2 – Using Google Analytics Site
If you want to export and share your Google Analytics reports and data in file formats other than PDF, you can do so from your Google Analytics account. Just open the type of report you want to export and you can find the Export button on almost all the reports present across the report title.
You can choose from one of the following file formats – CSV, TSV, TSV for Excel, Excel (XLSX), Google Sheets, and PDF. That’s really great if you’re into Excel reports and other tools that rely on the CSV format for loading the data.
Or if you want to share the reports directly without processing any of the data, you can click Share (present next to the Export button) and enter the email address(es) to which you would like to send the report.
So, that’s it. I hope you learned how to export and share Google Analytics reports straight from your WordPress site and from your Google Analytics dashboard. If you found this useful, do share it with your friends and followers on social media.
