    How do I add GA tracking to my blog which is hosted on WordPress? Since I can’t install plugins I’m not sure how I can get tracking installed.

    Thank you,

    Devin

    The blog I need help with is devwired.com.

    For a lot of reasons WordPress does not allow Google Analytics on its free blogs… if you’re looking for numbers, you can get WP friendly accounts here:

    I have upgraded – not sure about free blogs. However, I just went into dashboard > tools and copied the meta key content string from Google analytics to the provided area within tools – “Webmaster Tools Verification”. It was very simple – once I figured out where to add the meta tag content!

    There is no upgrade you can purchase from WordPress.com that will allow you to run Google analytics on your blog. http://en.support.wordpress.com/stats/#additional-info
