Stat Tracking?

    Hello everyone;

    I just wanted to ask a quick question to the community about tracking your website stats. I know that there is a built-in functional website stat-tracker. The problem is, that it does not seem to be working. It says that it is unavailable at this time. So, I was wondering if it was possible to use a third-party tracking service. Such as Google Analytics? I am not looking to pay any money for these services, I was just wondering if it was possible to use them on this blogging website?

    Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is literaryenthusiast.wordpress.com.

    See here please re: Google Analytics

    Can I use Google Analytics?
    No, Google Analytics cannot be used on WordPress.com blogs at this time. http://en.support.wordpress.com/stats/#additional-info

    Yes we can use third party visitor tracking on free hosted WordPress.com blogs, provided it’s not Javacript. Scroll down to Visitor Tracking on this page to locate alternatives htt://onecoolsitebloggingips.com/popular-posts/

    As for your stats not being available at this time I would wait. In fact you appear to have only two published posts and it can take 4 – 6 weeks for them to be indexed and appear in search engines results. Have you verified your blog ownership with the major search engines using this process? http://en.support.wordpress.com/webmaster-tools/ This post sets out 10 factors that may expedite the indexing process > http://www.onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2010/01/21/omg-i-cant-find-my-blog-on-google/

    Thanks a lot for the reply, I appreciate it. The problem is, that Google and every other service I have used, all use javascript. Any work around?

    You can’t use tracking that has javascript – there are several tracking methods that use plain html that can be used here. @timethief has several on her onecoolsitebloggingtips at her site above.

    @literaryenthusiast Let me add this. You said that:

    It says that it is unavailable at this time.

    Reason: You may not have enough visitors to be displayed, since your blog is only 1 day old.

    Agreed and that’s what I was pointing out above. There are only 2 published posts and they have not been indexed as yet.
