    Google Analytics cannot be used on WordPress.com blogs at this time.

    I’m sorry but there is not a way to reset the stats for a WordPress.com blog.

    Why? WordPress. com free hosted blogs are not commercial blogs. We already have an in-house program. We can use multiple other third party visitor tracking programs as well. And we can use quantcast and Alexa for traffic stats and demographics.

    @dagostinelli, you are assuming it is wordpress that is stopping it. Did you ever consider it might have something to do with Google?

    Quantcast provides a lot of very useful information as well

    Hope that WordPress can include GA one day.

    Cheers!

    Happiness Engeneers, it would be good to support Google Analytics, at least you could make that available on the accounts with paid DNS.
    Unfortunately, your Site Stats is too limited, and not much helpful in promoting sites.

    Of course, WordPress.com may keep ignoring these requests, but then people with paid accounts consider moving to Blogspot, where all things equal, and GA is available out of the box.

    And the SEO sucks donkey ass.

    #551424

    Yes but raincoaster Blogspot does has the special signup bonus: You get 100 XHTML errors and 55 warnings before you even write a post. Very generous of them I think.

    I love WP.com but indeed it should enable Google Analytics…

    I too would like to see support.

    I am developing an educational blog and would like to see where traffic is coming from to target specific areas/languages.

    Blogger is also free and I don’t see any difference between WP and Blogger on the free services except WP limitations, however paying for dns for my domain and getting limited webmaster functionality is not a great selling point. To be honest, it’s becoming quite frustrating.

    There are several ways to have visitors by countries tracked here – timethief has information on them on her site – I use two on my site and can see all the countries that visit – You don’t need GA to find out the countries that visit.

    Like auxclass said we can use 3rd party non-Javacript visitor tracking on wordpress.com blogs. See this page and scroll down to “Visitor Tracking” > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/popular-posts/

    Google Analytics is a critically important tool. If Google is willing to give us the tool for free, WordPress should as well. I know my Typepad Blog permits Google Analytics.
