    Are you talking about this blog http://theamelie.wordpress.com/ ?

    If so, Google Analytics cannot be used here because wordpress is already using it for some of the stats on our blogs, and because we do not have access to the underlying wordpress and theme files.

    There is a plain HTML version of statcounter, sitemeter and activemeter that will work here when put into a text widget, but the information you will receive with the HTML version is limited.

  4. I'm also trying to install Google Analytics onto my blog (www.hannahinmotion.wordpress.com) and also don't know where to find the Source Page. Unfortunately the answer you gave to theamelie is all Greek to me. Would appreciate any help you could give in laymen's terms. Thanks!

  5. Google Analytics cannot be used here.

  6. You will notice "<script>" in all of the examples you have provided. That indicates "javascript" which is not allowed here due to security concerns. Those examples work with self-hosted wordpress blogs using the software downloaded from wordpress.ORG, and installed on third-party web hosts. The won't work here.
