Announcing MonsterInsights 7.13 – Popular Posts and Contextual Insights

Ever wondered how much is your Google Analytics data worth? Do you think your website data is priceless?

We hate to be the bearer of bad news. But the reality is… Analytics data of most websites is not worth a penny!

That’s because website owners don’t know how to make informed decisions based on the data. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Today, we’re pushing out 2 MonsterInsights features that make it easy for you to take actionable steps to grow your business.

These features work like magic that you don’t even have to be an Analytics expert in order to make informed decisions. The features are Popular Posts and Contextual Insights.

Let’s look at each of these features in detail…

Help Readers Find Your Best Content with Popular Posts

We all know Google Analytics gives you a detailed report on popular pages, so you can see what resonates best with your audience. Sadly, in most cases, website owners don’t use this report to drive more traffic or engagement.

With the new MonsterInsights update, you can now show your top-performing articles anywhere on your website. It helps you get more pageviews, more engagement, and keep visitors on your site.

And with more people reading your blog posts, you have a higher chance of getting more ad clicks, email signups, social shares, and ultimately more conversions.

MonsterInsights offers 3 ways to display Popular Posts:

  • Inline Popular Posts – Display posts within the text of your content
  • Popular Posts Widget – Show up to 10 articles anywhere on your site, such as your sidebar or at the end of the post
  • Popular Products – If you have an eCommerce store, then make your popular products visible and boost your revenue

Here’s a sneak preview of how popular posts would be displayed within an article:
