WP Maps supports Google Analytics integration which allows you to monitor and analyze the activity in the locator widget on your website. As a result, you will be able to gather valuable information that is related to your customer's browsing activity. In addition, you will be able to gain insights into information such as:
- Which of your stores are most visited
- What are your most viewed products
- How many visitors visited your website
- And much more
