    If possible, I would love to have a plugin for Google Analytics on That way I can keep track of how many people visitit my blog and what kind of posts they read the most. That would really help me. Thanks in advance!



    Hi ilonamiddel,

    Sorry to say but plugins are not allowed in for security reasons however your Stats page is very helpful in keeping track of how many people visit your blog and what kind of posts they read the most. You can access your stats from the Stats tab on the home page or from your Dashboard -> Site Stats.

    Hope this helps. :)



    @elzrjose, I believe @ilonamiddel posted here in the ideas forum because she was wishing for the addition of Google Analytics functionality, not so much because she wanted to add a separate plugin.

    Believe me, ilonamiddel, you are not alone in the “please can we have Google Analytics” boat ;)


    Every body ask me for my google analytics numbers, Can we have both! because I will have to quit!



    I need also google analytics for my blogs!

    Don’t worry. You actually don’t need a plugin. I have created a very simple to follow and helpful guide that will show you how to add Google analytics to your very own WORDPRESS.COM blog.

    Excuse me but we have known about the cloudflare workaround for google analytics on blogs since 2011 and we do not provide support for it.

    I need Google Analytics as well. You HAVE to have it to be eligible to participate in professional forums. If WordPress is going to keep serious bloggers, they need to make this available.

    It’s so weird not having access to Google Analytics in 2014!! No excuse!



    So if I had stayed on the free version of WordPress, I could have plugins and Analytics? How is this good customer service?
    Do I cancel my Premium account and go back?

    No. there is no FTP access and no blogger installed plugin capability on any free hosted blogs.

    See here for a full comparison vs.

    There is no upgrade you can purchase here that provides FTP access and the ability to install plugins and or any third party themes. If you want FTP access and to install plugins or third party themes into a site then you will have to hire a web host and set up your own install.

    When ever this idea comes up, I have to support it.



    Whenever I see a thread on Google Analytics I groan out loud.
    Advice: Don’t hold your breath.


    I like to hold my breath. If something will happen or not, that doesn´t matter to me. I vote when I like the idea. But I get your point, it´s unlikely here. I don´t expect them to add things that are suggested by the community.



    Okay then. I sing and I don’t hold my breath unless it’s required. Otherwise use it to project. Granted that I’m small, but I don’t usually need a microphone. I just consider 8 years of pages of Google Analytics requests to be an indication this ain’t going to happen any time soon.


    I understand what you mean and agree. I don´t believe in it as well. But casting a vote doesn´t cost me anything. I just got taught that I can´t complain if anything doesn´t happen, if I didn´t vote for it or participated in the issue. Also I believe that something can only be changed together… so, this is some kind of ideology I guess :)
