    Wow, that's an awful lot of disappointed customers. At least I'm in good company. :(

  3. I would love to be able to incorporate Google Analytics code into my WordPress website. There is a lot of useful information there. There is no comparison between Google Analytics and WordPress Stats.

  4. i need it too, would it only be to get the geographical data, I love it when a complete foreigner ends up on my blog ... but unless they like or comment I don't see it without analytics...

    I would like GA on wordpress .
    It would be so useful

  6. @romainlamoine - Cluster Maps, Site Meter and Flag Counter and others all have plain html code you can add to your site to show location or countries - they are each a bit different from each other and have a free version - Quantcast which is built into your blog also gives limited geographic info.

  7. OMG Yes... one of the biggest issues I have with wp.com is the terrible analytics.. Please.... see this WP.

  8. OMG Yes... one of the biggest issues I have with wp.com is the terrible analytics.. Please.... see this WP.

  9. Please, let GA free!

  10. I agree. Seems crazy not to have google analytics on wordpress. I'm behind your campaign. Come on WordPress, get with the program!

  11. +1 for google analytics plugins. I may have to go over to tumblr otherwise.

  12. Honestly, I have a Tumblr. Tumblrs have so little SEO that Google Analytics are irrelevant: you can count to ten just using your fingers.

  13. +1 for Google Analytics! I can't see bounce rates, how much time people spent on the site by geography, etc. PLEASE!

  14. To quote Smoky Robinson, I second that emotion. Is there a reason why we can't have Google Analytics?

  15. Hey guys .. I'd really love to be able to use GA here as I am getting into Internet marketing and analytics... Please please pleeeeease!!!

    Internet marketing. How interesting. Are you aware that no blogger initiated advertising, retailing or reselling the work or products created or services provided by anyone other than yourself is allowed on free hosted wordpress.COM blogs? Also note E-commerce transactions via shopping carts and the like cannot be conducted on free blogs from and being free hosted by wordpress.COM.

    http://en.wordpress.com/types-of-blogs/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/affiliate-links/

    There is an advertising program called WordAds. It’s for well established blogs on their own domains, with suitable content and 20,000 - 25,000 page views or more monthly.

    But if you do require an ecommerce site, advertising and/or affiliate links then you can hire a web host and get a free software install from http://wordpress.org Refer to > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

  17. Yes, GA please!!

  18. is GA so much better than wordpress stats?

    Earlier in this discussion, (now inactive) member webhat suggested using the CloudFlare CDN to inject the Google Analytics tracking script into your wordpress.com blog. I've given this a try and after 2 months of enjoying Google Analytics stats I'd have to say I'm pretty happy with the solution. They're an interesting, though slightly complicated, solution - but one that could work for a lot of wordpress.com bloggers. I've detailed my experience and the steps you need to take to get this working on my blog: http://jonathonbalogh.com/2012/05/07/how-to-use-google-analytics-on-a-wordpress-com-blog/

    I'd love to hear from others who give this a try.

  20. +1 GA now@!!!!!!
