Analytics360 plugin allows you to pull Google Analytics and MailChimp data directly into your dashboard, so you can access robust analytics tools without leaving WordPress. You can visualize your site’s traffic trends and see how blog posts and email campaigns affect overall traffic. You can also isolate traffic coming directly to your site from email campaigns with the “campaign traffic” tab.
Check the growth of your mailing list over time. Compare new and existing subscribers. And if you’ve got multiple lists, see how they stack up to each other. Curious how all that new traffic ended up on your site? Wondering if more people are finding you through search or direct referrals? Analytics360 will break it all down for you with Google Analytics.
You can use the Analytics360 plugin without a MailChimp account, but users of MailChimp will see data about traffic sent to their blog via email campaigns aggregated with other stats.

WordPress 2.9 is just around the corner. Unlike WordPress 2.8, which Mark Jaquith describes as the Snow Leopard of WordPress since most of the basis of the WordPress 2.8 upgrade was complete rewrites and optimization of the infrastructure that ran WordPress instead of providing lots of new features in the same way Apple’s new OS X release is a focus on improved performance instead of features, WordPress 2.9 brings major new “bling” to the table.
By and large, this release is a plugin developers release with lots of new APIs and abstraction. However, there are significant additions for theme designers and users as well. Technosailor has written a really useful article: 10 Things You Need to Know About WordPress 2.9. Take a look and get ready for WordPress 2.9 in the near future!
