Reviews

Best WordPress Analytics

Filament is great for the digital marketer or blogger that wants to dig into the engagement of their content and figure out what to write about and how/where to best promote it.

It’s the perfect compliment to Buzzsumo and Google Analytics.

A few kinks to work out, but works well.

This is an excellent tool for easily setting up flairs on our blogs. It’s an easy interface, and the customization of the buttons is nice. Having the interface outside of WordPress did create one problem for us – we couldn’t set up the plugin on a wpengine staging site because filament didn’t see the site as existing, but we couldn’t set it up on the current site because it was getting a total redesign.
