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?
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/
oops! I forgot to close a blockquote tag — sorry. :(
Thank you for your help. You have been very resourceful.
You’re welcome and best wishes for happy blogging. :)
g’day to you. :)
@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.
Oh yes. I didn’t look upon your answer.
I never took that into account. Thanks :).

I didn’t do that yet. Thanks :).
I just went through all the processes, and it should now be working fine. Thanks a lot :) ; Resolved.
