I'd like to report on the performance of our blog posts and press releases. I have our Posts categorized as Blog, News (press releases) and Jobs (necessary for a plugin). If I just want to view the reporting on posts that include Blog or News how would I do this? Is it possible in GA?

Hi there, 

if you use the run-of-the-mill Google Analytics for Wordpress, you may run into a hard time getting what you need.

If you use Google Tag Manager, however, I developed a custom function to capture post types and categories to capture them in custom dimensions or content groups.
