The Easy Way To Setup All 3

In this video tutorial I'm going to show you how to complete 3 important steps that you'll need to complete once you've built a wordpress site. (well it's all optional but recommended)

If you already have a Gmail address and have set up a Google+ profile, you can complete the 3 steps in around 5 to 15 minutes. I recommend that you first watch the video from start to end, then start over pausing video as you follow along.

Can't see because the video is too small? All my videos are recorded in HD and will look fine in full screen mode.

1: Setting Up Google Authorship

Google authorship is all about telling Google who the author is that created the content or site. This is done by linking your content and your Google Plus profile together.

Setting up your authorship gives you many benefits and is also recommended.

In the first part of this video I'm going to show you step by step how to configure and setup authorship on your wordpress site.

2: Verify Site With Google Webmaster Tools

If you plan on ranking or being indexed in Google's search engine, it's important that you verify your site with Google Webmaster Tools. This will allow you to give Google details about your site, submit sitemap and much more, at the same time this will allow Google to communicate back with you, perhaps pointing out errors, bad backlinks etc.

In the second part of this video I'm going to show you how to verify your site with Webmaster Tools.

3: Connect Your Site With Google Analytics

Google Analytics is one of the best and most powerful tracking tools around and it's free to use. But to use Analytics will need to add some code so that tracking information is passed back to our Analytics account.

In the last part of this video I' m going to show you how to connect your site with your Analytics account, I'll also quickly show you how to then connect your Webmaster Tools account with your Analytics accounts.

After updating the plugin with your Analytics ID you may need to wait a few minutes for Analytics to work.

The Google Analytics layout has changed since I recorded the video above.

If you'd like to integrate Analytics and Webmaster tools please refer to the screenshot below.


What Do I Need?

To follow along you'll need the following:

  1. A wordpress site, preferably on your own domain.
  2. The All In One SEO plugin installed and enabled (if you've followed the courses at WA you should already have this installed)
  3. A Gmail address, this will allow you to create a Google+ profile, Webmaster Tools and Analytics account.
If you run into any problems or need help, please post a comment below and myself or someone else will reply.

Thank you so much for lesson for the google application. I do have a quick question regarding linking webmaster tools to google analytic. The latest version interface for google analytic is very different from the version in this video. I can't seem to find it. The closest to what I found was under
audience --> acquisition --> search controls --> queries

This is for search control integration. Wondering if this is the same as webmaster tools? or Is it located somewhere else?

thank you for your help!!!

Hi there I did the first two steps, but having trouble with the last step of the video when log into the Google Analytics site: in the video after signing into google analytics this is the screen I see (not the same one as the author of the video above- so I was unable to fill in all the data like in the video)

here is a screenshot of what I see when I sign into Google Analytics:

Can someone tell me where I go from the screenshot I posted below to plug in my website data?

go to Admin at the bottom and then use the middle column to enter your data.

perhaps I am confused because it looks like I already set this up, perhaps it was in one of Kyle's videos when we first set up my website as when I go into my SEO settings under my dashboard I see a code in my Google Analytics ID box:

Does this mean I am already set up with Google Analytics?

okay I will make sure that section is filled out, I'm just at a loss trying to find where he goes to 'universal analytics" 8 minutes (exactly) into the video

I think that code is just a placeholder. there should be no "#" in the number. U get your code from the admin area in Analytics.

JUST ONE favor to ask:

Craig, Please could you update the training as the setup video is out of date.
It was not easy to follow the instructions on google+ and on analytics as the site layouts have changed since the video was created. I struggled to get through the steps with all the new page views on google+ and analytics, but eventually got it done!!

I'm a wee bit lost @ step 2 around 4:13 in the video. Google webmaster was empty and asked me to "add a property". Once that was done, it gave me a "file" to download and said I neded to take that and "upload" it to my website. It's just a string of letters and numbers followed by .html . I have no idea how to "upload" this to my site. Do you know what it means when it says "upload"? Is there somewhere in the site that I have to copy and paste that string?

Thanx.

That usually means it's wanting you to FTP something up to your website's root, which really isn't necessary. Sounds like you're trying to verify your site by some means other than SEO.

First, I want to commend you on your systematic teaching method. It took quite a while to get through it all and I did have to stop every sentence or two to follow instructions. Some of the steps were tough to follow because the layout of Google has changed, but I was able to figure out most of it. In the end, I was able to do it and am quite grateful. I could never have figured it out on my own (or at least it would have taken much, much longer). Thank you.

Andrew, are you using All-In-One SEO or Yoast? In A-I-O the dashboard has a selection for XML Sitemap. Click on this and then click on "View your site map." You should see the content of the sitemap. If not, click on "Update sitemap" then re-verify with "View your sitemap."

In Yoast there is a section called "XML Sitemap." Here you can look at the sitemap by clicking "You can find your XML Sitemap here:" It should show the contents of the sitemap.

Then go to webmaster tools and enter the sitemap address manually and click verify. This will make sure google can find it. The re-enter the sitemap address and webmaster tools should show it as pending. It takes some time for google to process it.

When you click on the dashboard "Plugins" menu entry, one of the choices is "Installed Plugins". Click on that item.

Near the top of the list of installed plugins, you should see the entry for All in One SEO. If it's not there, you'll need to install the plugin by hitting the "Add New" button at the top of the page.

If the plugin is there, ensure that the last item in the listed options is "Deactivate". (That indicates that the plugin is currently activated.) If the menu option says "Activate", that indicates the plugin is deactivated. Click the "Activate" option to activate the plugin. At that point, it should appear in your wordpress dashboard menu.

Hi Craig ... Back again ... I got my analytics tied to 2 sites. My old site and my new site.

Should I go to my old site all in one SEO to remove the analytics ID? Please share your thoughts. Thx. Apeng

Hi Apeng you should only have the analytics ID setup on the site you are actively tracking. So remove it on the old site and set it up on the new..

If you want to track both at the same time, you need another id for your new site, otherwise you have to remove it from the old one and just leave on the new.

Double check that you don't have the same code installed on two different sites! One analytics per website. You can completely delete the analytics tracking from the old site if you want, and start completely fresh if you are starting to mix up which code goes to which site.

Thank you for this very useful information!
I have verified my website with webmaster tool. Now it tells me to: "Make sure you add both "www" and "non-www" versions for your site. Also, if you use the HTTPS protocol, add those variations as well." so how do I verify www. version of my site? I tried to add it same way than the "non-www" version, leaving both codes ( separated with comma) but it didn't work out...
Can you or someone who knows help me!?
Reply
upsgirl Premium
Let me try. I verified both as well. Generally, once you have verified one version of the domain, Google can easily verify the other using the original verification method.
Reply
marianetlife Premium
so did you put both codes in the same line?
Reply
upsgirl Premium
No, I used the original verification process and entered both separately. Want me to find some training? Didn't you say you tried both at the same time?
Reply
marianetlife Premium
yes I tried both but it didn't work. Haven't tried separately because it says: "To stay verified, don't remove the meta tag, even after verification succeeds." So I was afraid that it won't work that way! But it does work for you then!?
Reply
upsgirl Premium
People have removed the meta tag, accidentally, and then had to verify the original way. Let me find something...
Reply
upsgirl Premium
From Google: "Simply add both versions of your site: as the www version is already added, you now have to add the non-www version. After you verify it, you will then be able to use the preferred domain option."
Google shows a lot of information, if you need clarification.
Reply
marianetlife Premium
My problem was that I thought those two codes were different...
After I tried to do it separately and did get it verified I was thinking that maybe it would be better to put the original code back and then there I noticed that those two codes are exactly the same!!
If I just checked that at the beginning... well I got still lot to learn :)
Thank you for helping me find the answer upsgirl!

I certainly couldn't have done any of this without your step-by-step instructions. Thank you. I managed to get Analytics set up and received confirmation after entering my code in All-in-One-SEO. However, when I went onto my website to watch the real time results appear in Analytics, I got nothing. I logged on from another computer using an incognito page on Chrome, still nothing. I've been through the video several times and all my settings, and can't figure out why I'm not getting any results on Google Analytics. I've linked it with Webmaster Tools where my visits to the site have registered. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

When you added your domain to Analytics make sure it doesn;t have WWW. You can check the property settings. (i think that's' what it's called).
Reply
wlincourt Premium
Thanks, I'll give that a try. The instructions on Analytics were to add all forms of the URL including www and http which I did. I'll delete all but the bare site name.
Reply
welshy Premium
If you use WA hosting, it's not possible to have/use WWW. if you enter the www.domain into browser it will always redirect to domain.

So if you add WWW in analytics it's only going to track traffic that use www.domain, but as it redirects that means no traffic go to www.

Little confusing.
Reply
wlincourt Premium
Tried that, welshy, but it didn't make a difference except it said it wasn't associated with any property. The http:// is automatically added.
Reply
wlincourt Premium
In the Analytics page, it automatically adds http://. So the URL in Analytics then shows as http://domain name when I remove the www. When I check, it says that domain isn't connected to a property and I don't get any analytics data. However, I do get data in Webmaster Tools with the www.domain name. I'm sorry, but it is confusing. The Google tools are obviously setup for IT professionals. And the actual pages and process of configuring it has changed significantly since the video was made, although the video was a huge help and I thought I figured it out. Guess I'll just have to keep playing with it until I figure it out. Thanks.

Under the Default View, the button says "All Web Site Data." When I click on the button a search box opens. I've added my site/property name to the search box but the All Web Site Data remains the default. I don't know how to change the button default to my property name.

My URL is www.startanonlineblog.com. My site name is How to Start an Online Business.

Ok I think I see the problem, lgin to your site and under the All In One SEO settings, I would recommend deleting whatever you have inside this red box and saving setting again. http://take.ms/dkNk9

I can't recall if in the video I tell people to prefill this box or not, but you have your domain with the www.
Delete and then save.
Hopefully, that will fix it as I'm just about to head out to an appointment.

Yes, thanks. I bought a security plugin which changed the prefix of my data files. That made them more secure but also created an error in the Website Manager "Move" function. The result was that I couldn't accessed the backend of Wordpress. I filed a support request and they were able to disable the plugin and get me back into WP. My advice -- if you want to move your website to another domain, don't activate a security plugin until after the move.

Hi Zhanna,
Thanks for the comments.
1: "Status: Receiving Data" I think that means it's working because its receiving data. Have you checked "Real Time" stats and visitied your site to see if it works?

2: I'm not sure what you mean exaclty.

I just had a quick look at your site hitoutfit.com
I can see that you have the analytics tracking code installed a few times via different plugins.

You should probably disable the plugin "BEGIN GADWP v4.5.1 Universal Tracking" and the plugin "Google Webmaster Tools plugin for WordPress" because you have this both covered with the All in One SEO plugin.
Reply
zhanua Premium
Thanks a lot for comments, Craig!
1. I've checked. it is work.
2. Thanks, I understood. I deactivate Google Webmaster Tools, Verify Google Webmaster Tools. I don't have "BEGIN GADWP v4.5.1 Universal Tracking" plugin but I have Google Analytics and Google Analytics Dashboard for WP. Should I deactivate them as well?
Thnx a lot in advance!

This is a wonderful tutorial. Some of the google pages have changed a bit, but I was still able to find everything.

I'm having a problem with verifying my site in the testing tool. When I put in any URL associated with my site, I get the error message "No structured data present". I'm also not showing up in any searches on my keywords. In my admin area under pages, the SEO info on the right all says, no title, no description, no keywords. Any idea of what I've done to become "invisible"? If you don't know how to help me, can you refer me to someone here on WA that might be able to? Thanks so much.

A few months ago Google discontinued authorship, meaning images will no longer appear in the search results.

However, I still recommend that you complete this step, this lets Google know who the author is etc, in the long run it will be beneficial.

Excellent video. You made the process very clear.

One thing has changed, however, regarding the last step in your training for linking Analytics to Webmaster Tools. Once one has confirmed the Analytics, rather than selecting Traffic Sources (which has no option for SEO) they should click on Admin in the upper menu. Then select Property Settings from the middle column and scroll to the bottom to find the Webmaster Tools Settings area. From there, it works just as you said (click Edit, select the radio button next to your website name, then click on Save and Ok).

Hi Welshy, great tutorial! I had it all working just fine, but it seems something has gone wrong. I had this all set up and everything was working great before my Google Analytics was updated to Universal Analytics and now it seems the Analytics is not working.

Everything else works when I try it out on WMT and on my G+ account. It's been showing 0 visitors in GA for a month now. When I know people have visited my site and I also tried the "real time" with no luck either, still 0 visitors even though I'm on my site at the time.

I've added my tracking ID again, but still nothing and when I check it on GA, it's saying "the GA tracking code has not been detected on your site's homepage. For Analytics to function, you or your web administrator must add the code to each page of your website."

I've been searching through the help section there and I'm not sure what to do looking at that. I'm stuck...Do I need to undo everything somehow and redo it again? Or just add the tracking code into my site?

Thanks in advance and best wishes!

Sometimes it takes a little time, not really sure why.
Other times I find that if you added your domain using WWW it can cause problems. Removing the www and saving can help.

Is it tracking now.

I have tried a number of times to get my tracking ID veriffied but to no success. Every time I enter and update in ALLSEO I return to google anylitics only to see that my "tracking has not been intalled yet". Please help, everything else on the video has worked for me. I'm not sure why this is such a problem...

Hi,
What is giving you the error "something went wrong" the plugin or Analytics?

If you're having problems with the livebodypainter site listed on your profile. You may need to update the "All in one SEO" plugin.

I see you currently have version 2.0.3 and the most current version is 2.1.5

I see something isn't right with your authorship too.
Replace the URL you added to the All in one seo plugin with:
https://plus.google.com/+LorindaFore
Make sure you add the https://

On your G+ account add your site link to the contributor section, I see you added it to links but the correct place is contributor.

Wow ! There were a few things I didn't have done. This is definitely saved for future site building. Although the Analytics site has changed some, I was still able to find what you talking about. Took a few times searching around for edit but I found it. THANKS for doing this lesson.

welshy, I been using the tracking code in the Webmaster Tool box and I've been getting verified. I followed your instruction and I removed the tracking code and I pasted the script that's between the quotes into this box, but I am still not getting verified for this site:

Should I replace the tracking code back, I don't know if this is going to un-verify my sites that's been verified. This is a little confusing!

Hi,
I can see that you've pasted your Analytics ID into the Webmaster field.
I can also see that you have analytics installed twice, once in the header.php file, this is going to give you tracking errors.

If you want me to login and fix this for you, please PM me the login details plus the code that Webmaster Tools gives you.

I'll fix it for you.
