Setting up webmasters tools in some WordPress themes can be tough. The reason being is because some of them don’t make it very easy for you to insert the necessary data on your WordPress site easily. The All-In-One Webmaster WordPress plugin is a comprehensive package that helps in verification of meta tags. You can verify meta tags of Google Webmaster Tools, Yandex Webmaster Center, Bing Webmaster Tools, Alexa Rank Verification, BlogCatalog, Google Tag Manager and Pinterest Verification. So to make it easy for you webmasters that want to easily integrate your websites with these I figured I would show you around the settings of All-In-One Webmaster.
Here is a video that I highly recommend you check out from Kim Castleberry that explains this plugin in full detail:
The plugin provides an all-in-one package to verify all the meta tags of different services that you use. Google Webmaster Tools is undoubtedly one of the most critical tools that every webmaster uses. Without it, you won’t get all the details on how your website performs in the Google search engine. Bing Webmaster Tools is another important tool that provides you details on how your site performs in Bing’s search engine.
Other than these, you also have the option of adding meta content of Facebook Insights. The meta-content can be off page admin, page id as well as an app id. All you have to do is add them, and the details will be verified with your site.
Facebook Insights data is very helpful. You will get all the details about the number. Of views, some likes and dislikes. You will also get details like when most fans are online and the numbers of engagement you had with each post.
Always remember to use tags for all the services you use. It helps in better data aggregation and accurate traffic analytics.
Other than Google Analytics, you also have the option of Quantcast Analytics, Clicky Analytics, Compete Analytics and also Sitemeter Analytics. All of them combined will provide a detailed overview of your site’s performance and an effective traffic profile.
The plugin also comes with Google Authorship options. However, since Google doesn’t take into account authorships, so you can completely ignore this section.
If you want to add custom HTML code to the header or footer of your WordPress site, then you can add them here. They are especially helpful if you want to add a custom tracking script.
The sitemap option gives you the option of adding your website’s sitemap URL. Once you have done this, it will be automatically submitted to Google and Bing.
The Misc options let you add a favicon link for your site. You only have to add the favicon link.
