Google Analytics and plugins

  1. Hi there,

    I'm having a bit of trouble figuring out how to add google analytics to my site. I'm also looking to add a related articles code or plugin to the site too so they appear at the end of articles. So far no luck though. Any advice much appreciated. Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is collectivepressco.com.

  2. For add Google Analisic : yourblog.wordpress.com/wp-admin/tools.php
    For plugin : I don't know

  3. For starters you can't use Google Analytics or Plug-in's on WordPress.COM - GA code is stripped out & no plugin's for security and reliability reasons

  4. Thanks to you both!

  5. WTF? No GA code? How an I supposed to track my page views?!

  6. Stats are included with wordpress.com blogs: Stats

  7. Hi there,
    WordPress.com Stats entry in support docs > http://en.support.wordpress.com/stats/#additional-info

    Note we cannot install Google Analytics on free hosted WordPress.com blogs. There is no upgrade here aside from your blog being accepted into VIP hosting that allows you to run Google Analytics.

    This is a multi-user blogging platform. Our blogs share a common architecture. We bloggers cannot access metadata on free hosted WordPress.com blogs and install any tracking code, we have no FTP access and we cannot install any plugins.

    FTP access, and plugins are available only for VIP bloggers http://vip.wordpress.com/our-services/ or for those with WordPress.ORG installs. http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    You will need to hire a web host http://wordpress.org/hosting/ and set you your own WordPress.org software install to install any plugins.
