About MonsterInsights

Hello and Welcome to MonsterInsights, the most popular Google Analytics plugin for WordPress. At MonsterInsights, we build software that helps you get the stats that matter, so you can make data-driven decisions to grow your website and business.

MonsterInsights was previously known as Google Analytics for WordPress by Yoast. In 2016, Syed Balkhi acquired the plugin with a single goal: make analytics easy for beginners.

MonsterInsights is brought to you by the same team that’s behind the largest WordPress resource site, WPBeginner, the most popular lead-generation software, OptinMonster, and the best WordPress gallery plugin, Envira Gallery.

Yup, we know a thing or two about building awesome products that customers love.
