Tracking Page Impressions in Google Analytics by Post Author

Is there a way for me to setup a dashboard/report in Google Analytics that will show me a traffic summary (visits/impressions, etc.) by post author?

I have multiple authors on my blog and I want to see who is performing the best without having to figure what articles belongs to who. Or is their a wordpress plugin for this by chance?

You can simply add author sections as different websites and get a different code snippet for them. Then you can use these code snippets where you want to insert your Google analytics code. For example, if you’re going to use your Google analytics code in the footer of your blog, you will need to create a small PHP routine that checks whose blog post is being currently loaded and then accordingly load the Google analytics JavaScript code snippet.
