How to See Your Page Insights for Posts and Pages in WordPress
Step 1: Follow our instructions in our Getting Started with Page Insights to install the Page Insights addon for MonsterInsights.
Step 2: When you’re logged into WordPress, navigate to a page or post.
Step 3: Click the “Insights” button at the top of the screen.
Step 4: A drop-down displaying the stats for the page or post you’re currently viewing will appear.
With the Page Insights addon for MonsterInsights, you can easily see the following statistics for each page and post for the last 30 days, up to yesterday. Page Insights includes the most crucial metrics for your blog posts and pages:
- Page views
- Time on Page
- Bounce Rate (UA only) or Total Users (GA4 only)
The metric Bounce Rate is only available if you’ve connected MonsterInsights to a UA property. If you’re connected to a GA4 property, you’ll see Total Users instead of Bounce Rate when viewing Page Insights reports.
