    Idiotic useless bar wit nonformation on top of pages.
    Followed instruction to try to remove it, but there is no such option.
    Why do you need SEO info on the frontend, this is a very stupid option and making it default causes me to fix it on all websites.
    Please remove hte option or at least make it a choice a user has to choose for and not the default choice.

  • I totally agree, this feature should be off by default!

    This should fix your problem and remove the Stats Bar…

    Don’t have a Analytics Account connected, and not seeing that option.

    I added this to my function.php for now:

    /**
     * Remove upsell banner Rank Math
     */
    function remove_upsell_banner_rank_math() {
      wp_dequeue_style( 'rank-math-analytics-stats');
      wp_deregister_style( 'rank-math-analytics-stats');
      wp_dequeue_script( 'rank-math-analytics-stats');
      wp_deregister_script( 'rank-math-analytics-stats' );
    }
    add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', 'remove_upsell_banner_rank_math', 99);

    Nice fi Snapper65 but I refuse to add code to remove ads from a plugin :-).
    If it’s not going away by itself soon, it’s exit Rank Math and welcome to simple SEO.

    Fair enough humpiedump, I agree

    There needs to be an easier solution or people will just move to another plugin

    Yep, if it isn’t address I’ll be using something else going forward and unsubbing from pro.

    Hello Support,

    No not really.
    I like plugins wich give users a choice to use some of the functions or use all of them, depending off the websites I use it on.

    You’re displaying a top bar while the connection with GA isn’t there (cause it’s not needed on some websites). That’s a really poor user experience. As long the connection isn’t there I can not get rid of the top-bar, while the fact that the connection isn’t there indicates that I’m not that interested in GA.
    Not all admins are webdevelopers, some just know how to do updates and add some content, wich enables them to maintain their own website without extra costs.
    And if something strange happens (like a top-bar wich seems to screw-up the looks of a website) they call the guy who build the website (quess who?).
    See my point?
    And is clicking the go-away-top-bar-x one time enough?
    No every time you switch pages to check how things look on the front-end you need to click it again and again.
    You can not be serious that this is user-friendly.
    I can’t imagin in wich scenario this top-bar is helpfull, but maybe you an enlighten me?

    Hello @humpiedump,

    We have released an update where the Stats Bar would be displayed only when the Google account (GSC) is connected to Rank Math: https://rankmath.com/changelog/free/

    The Stats Bar gives you a quick glance at the performance of the page based on various metrics so that you can easily find opportunities for improvement. Here’s a guide with more details: https://rankmath.com/kb/analytics-stats-bar/

    We have also ensured that clicking the close button keeps the bar in a closed state.

    Hope that helps. Thank you.

    Hello @humpiedump

    Glad that helped and appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter.

    If it isn’t too much to ask for – would you mind leaving us a review here?
    https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/seo-by-rank-math/reviews/#new-post

    It only takes a couple of minutes but helps us tremendously.

    It would mean so much to us and would go a really long way.

    Thank you.​​

    I used some CSS to hide this ad. Why? Becuase it covers my entire site menu on the front end of my site when I’m trying to edit. Not precisely a good way to convince me to go pro. Here’s my CSS solution for anyone else who doesn’t want to edit plugin files:

    /* hide the rankmath bar that covers the site menu with an advertisement for their pro version--get out of my admin RankMath! */  
    #rank-math-analytics-stats-wrapper {  
        display: none!important;
    }
    #rank-math-analytics-stats {
    	display: none!important;
    }
    #rank-math-analytics-stats-content{
    	display: none!important;
    }
    #rank-math-analytics-stats-footer{
    	display: none!important;
    }
    #rank-math-analytics-stats-content {
    	display: none!important;
    }
    #rank-math-analytics-stats-wrapper.hide-stats a.rank-math-analytics-close-stats svg {
    	display: none!important;
    }

    Thanks for the CSS @orangeambition. I agree with you. Terrible tactic.

    Hello @luclearmedia & @orangeambition

    You do not need to add any CSS.

    You can disable the Stats Bar by following this guide:
    https://rankmath.com/kb/analytics-stats-bar/#num-2-enable-stats
    Rank Math > General Settings > Analytics > Frontend Stats Bar (and disable)

    Also, please stay advised that these stats are shown only to the backend users (mostly admins) that have the access to the Analytics module.

    Hope that helps. Thank you.

    I host more than 100 websites, more than 50 of them have rankmath attached to them (not for long). It’s a real pain to have to go through each one to disable this banner that should be disabled by default. Backend advertisements are generally okay, but the ads on your plugin are now intrusive. My clients are admins on their sites – I’m sure they love seeing this banner when they go to edit their pages from the front-end.

    Disabling it by default should be your response to everyone’s feedback. It’s not a helpful feature. It’s a frontend advertisement.

    I understand they are only shown to admins, but the problem is that it’s covering the entirety of my site menu on the front end so I can’t navigate without having to deal with the extra click of closing it. On every page.
