Google analytics is showing up as a click on my stats page

    Hi there,
    I have a wordpress.com blog, so I know that I can't use google analytics. Today, on my wordpress stats page, under the 'clicks' heading, I can see the the usual list of my files that people have clicked to download, plus a heading that says 'google analytics'. Under this heading there are 5 clicks recorded, showing as links to google pages. When I try to follow the link to the pages I get a google page that says 'error, page not found'. I'm just wondering what this is, since I obviously don't have google analytics installed, so I don't see how anyone could have clicked on it from my site. I hope this makes sense. I have a screenshot of it if that helps. My site is http://earlyyearsenglish.wordpress.com

    The blog I need help with is earlyyearsenglish.wordpress.com.

  2. I flagged this for the staff -

    if you could upload the screen shot into your Media Library they can review it

  4. Hi there!

    Thank you for that screenshot! Please leave that screenshot in your media library for now.

    I need to do a little more investigation on what might be going on here and I will get back to you once I have more information.

    Thank you!

    Thanks csonnek!

  6. Hi there!

    There was a small bug that was creating those stats that we have now fixed. You can ignore those 5 clicks since they'll remain in your stats.

    I hope that clarifies things!
