Google Analytics/Plugins

  1. Hi, I have a wordpress website (http://daniellethomsen.com/), and I can't figure out how to access and install a plugIn. (It's not listed as a tab on my Dashboard panel as others have said.) I would like to install the Google Analytics plugin. Thanks!!

  2. I'm sorry, it's not possible to install Google Analytics on WordPress.com. We do, however, offer a number of great stats features built into your blog.

    We don't allow plugins on WordPress.com for security reasons. Plugins are a feature only available for self-hosted blogs provided through WordPress.org.

    However, we do have some really cool widgets. Perhaps one of those might meet your needs?

  3. Hello -- Thank you for your response. I should have noted that I saw this elsewhere, but I thought it would be possible to install this because I upgraded my site (it's not a wordpress.com site, but rather just my name -- daniellethomsen.com). Please let me know if I'm confusing something. Thanks!

  4. The domain you registered is just the name for your site, but it's still hosted at WordPress.com.

    There are no restrictions if you setup a self-hosted WordPress.org blog instead of a WordPress.com blog, but there are some added responsibilities. We have hosting recommendations at the following link if you are interested.
