How to connect my Google Analytics account?

To view the performance of your content in Semji

Why connect my Google Analytics account to Semji?

In addition to helping you create and optimize your content, Semji allows you to track your results and performance in the blink of an eye. The platform retrieves data from different tools such as Google Analytics and Search Console, in order to display the performance of optimized contents.

Without a connection to these statistical tools, you cannot follow your KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) directly in the interface. 

Don't panic if you use AT Internet! Semji is also compatible with this Web Analytics solution. See our dedicated article to know how to connect your AT Internet account.
