Hi,

We have created an e-directory using a wordpress theme. It would be nice to find a metrics plugin that we can use for the site as a whole but also configure so that that individual subscribers are able to see activity on their listings alone.

Question: what are some good wordpress metric plugins that we might use?

Thanks,

First, you'll want to have an analytics package installed on your site, that is not dependent on wordpress. Your host may already provide one, but I'd suggest Google Analytics on top of whatever may be running already. This will provide a more comprehensive view than most any WP plugin.

In regards to giving individual subscribers, a view into 'activity on their listings'. What exactly are you looking for here? If someone posted their business/link in your directory, you want to show them how many views/clicks/etc it has received?

Great - thank you. I just installed Google Analytics Dashboard for WP.

Yes, that is exactly correct.

The solutions to this could be far and wide.

Are you using some e-directory plugin/framework to provide the directory/membership functionality?

Are you using an ad management system to provide the directory/membership functionality?

Are you using the default Wordpress user management system to give members the ability to add listings as pages or posts?

Thanks for the suggestion on Google Analytics. I can actually choose the subscription level to show metrics to.
