I am managing the web analytics of a wordpress blog. It has a plugin which gives the visitors share the blog on a number of social media. I wan to track how many of the users shred the blogpost and have the data show up in my google analytics. Is this possible? What steps will I have to take to achieve this?
The only way is to use a plugin that specifically has that sort of analytics added as part of it or can throw an event to Google Analytics to detect the share. Short of that if all you want is lists on how often content has been shared and you don't care who has shared the content then most social networks have API's into their social graph that allows you to see the number of shares, likes, comments, etc, on a specific graph element including a web page URL.
