Notice: the current implementation of the plugin setup flow requires developer know-how and familiarity with Google Cloud Platform and OAuth verification process; the current setup experience is not the final user experience which will no longer require apps to be manually verified.

The first step of Site Kit setup is to generate OAuth credentials and create a Google Cloud Platform app, so you can securely access your site’s stats in various Google products via APIs.

A few issues have been reported when getting Site Kit credentials — the known ones are listed below; if you encounter a problem, please open a GitHub issue with a screenshot of the error message.

Current known limitations

Ad Blocker

  • Issue: Not possible to generate OAuth credentials with an ad blocker enabled in your browser.
  • Cause: Site Kit offers integration for multiple services, including AdSense.
  • Fix: Temporarily disable Ad Blockers in order to get the credentials.
