    Having some difficulty configuring my blog with my google analytics account. I have the google UA and the script. Can't figure out how to add the script to the blog.

    Thanks in advance....

    The blog I need help with is irreducibleprimary.com.

  2. Quite easy actually - you can't use GA on a WordPress.COM blog - the code gets stripped out for security reasons (script)

    you can use other third party stats programs if they have plain html codes

    I have no idea what you're talking about....but thanks for the response ;)

  4. The answer is we cannot use Google Analytics on free hosted WordPress.com blogs. Do you understand that?

  5. The code for Google Aalytics is stripped out / not allowed for security reasons

    I'll figure it out. Enjoy the day....

  8. There's nothing to figure out here - no you can't use Google Analytics on a free hosted WordPress.com blog means no you can't use Google Analytics on a free hosted wordpress.com blog ... lol :D

    Additional Info
    Can I use Google Analytics?
    No, Google Analytics cannot be used on WordPress.com blogs at this time. http://en.support.wordpress.com/stats/#additional-info

  9. You can use only non-JavaScript third party visitor tracking programs. There are free ones like sitemeter or statcounter that you can locate by scrolling down to "Visitor Tracking" here http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/popular-posts/

  10. @TT - I was looking for the link you gave also - just did not think to look under "stats"

    thanks

  11. What about in the premium WordPress accounts, can you use Google Analytics there?

  12. NO!

    There is no upgrade aside from your blog being accepted into VIP hosting http://vip.wordpress.com/our-services/ that allows you to run Google Analytics.

    Plugins are available only for VIP bloggers http://vip.wordpress.com/our-services/ or for those with WordPress.ORG installs.
