Please allow Google Analytics
Hi scifiandhorror, I had the same issue. It’s not just Blogger that allows Google Analytics but, as I explain in a recent post, other popular blogging services such as Posterous, Tumblr, Typepad and LiveJournal. In any case, I wanted to let you know that, as long as you have your own domain name, there is a way to run Google Analytics on a WordPress.com blog.
Hi i have own domain name and i used domain mapping on my free wordpress blog to my domain name
can you tell me how to add Google Analytics with own domain name?
Hi apekade, check out the link I posted above. This will walk you through the steps to get Google Analytics working on a WordPress.com blog. A lot of bloggers here have had success with this.
It’s easily googleable, and one of the things you should research before deciding where to build a website.
There IS a workaround to get Google Analytics, but a couple of experts I respect have said it sets off alarm bells for them.
Just throwing in my vote – in case the powers that be at WordPress are interested: we want Google Analytics. It flippin’ rocks my socks. For any blogger, particularly a professional blogger – more in depth analysis of traffic to the site and out of the site is imperative. Not to mention the intertwined functionality of all Google products.
Please don’t hate on the Analytics.

A professional blogger hoping to make money from advertising or affiliates would be ill-advised to set up at WordPress.com.
You can use Google Analytics if you own a domain name and if you use CloudFlare. All you need to do is change the name servers of the domain name.
Blogger.com is actually owned and operated by Google, so they don’t have a reason not to allow their own product (Google Analytics) inside another of their products (Blogger.com).
Once again, Mr Boss man at WordPress.com, can you please please let allow us to use Google Analytics on WordPress.com ?
There is no reason for you not to !!!
I sign your suggestion.. we need google analytics.
I googled, and found this:
http://www.wpbeginner.com/beginners-guide/how-to-install-google-analytics-in-wordpress/ – so I thought I could install Google Analytics. I’m disappointed to find I can’t. At least could that old information be taken down, as it’s misleading? I found it today.
It is not misleading. It is completely accurate, but it applies to WordPress.ORG, not WordPress.COM. You need to learn the difference, particularly if you want that level of control and insight delivered by Google Analytics; you really do need to know the kind of WordPress you’re using.
I know the kind of wordpress I’m using. It’s the video that I’m talking about: how can a beginner know that a site called wp.beginner.COM doesn’t apply to wordpress.COM but to wordpress.ORG? That’s confusing, at least for me.
.com is a standard domain. If you don’t realize that, you really do need to slow down.
+1 to GA. Sort it out wordpress…
+1 to Google Analytics!!!
I have now moved my site (BrickExtra) from WordPress.com to WordPress.org so that I can get more features and not have to have that annoying little “wordpress.com” bit in my web address. I have found that WP.org is wayyyyy more useful for what I using its services for. :D
WP.org has loads of interesting and useful plugins for just about everything I will ever need (from broken link checkers to email subscription services!). ;)
My recommendation is that: if you are serious and committed to blogging, then go for WP.org. But if you are a casual blogger who doesn’t really need much features and functions, then you should go for the free WP.com for your blog.
One other good thing about WP.org is that you can freely do whatever you want (Google Ads, Google Analytics, etc.), without any restrictions! :)
