Google Analytics Please !!!
I am really missing Google Analytics here on WordPress.com so I thought I would start a thread and try and get some support from other WordPress.com users who think the same way.
I am sure it is not that difficult to add a Google Analytics widget to WordPress.com.
While coming up with new paid Themes is great, stats is a vital area that WordPress.com hasn’t done anything about for a long time now.
Another option would be to include details such as time spent on average, time spent per blog post, geographic location of the readers etc.
WordPress staff, are you listening ?
P.S. If anyone agrees with me, please add your opinion to this post. Hopefully, WordPress.com will finally listen to our pleas…
The blog I need help with is mitaroygoahotel.com.

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
I am fully aware that Google Analytics cannot be used on WordPress.com blogs at this time.
That is why the title of my post is not “Can I use Google Analytics?” but “Google Analytics Please !!!!” And that is why I posted this in Ideas.
I still cannot understand why WordPress.com cannot come up with a simple Google Analytics widget instead of the recent cosmetic changes it has been coming up with.
What would be the best way to get more support for this topic and bring this once again to the attention of the WordPress.com decision makers ??
Mihir, if you want your message to go straight to WordPress.com for consideration, you may use the contact form: http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/
Of course, there is no guarantee that they will ever support Google Analytics.
Thanks for the suggestion.
That is exactly why I was trying to get more people on board via the Forums who want it as well…
Hope it works…
Yes, I love the stats that WP provides, but an option for Google analytics to be incorporated would be Sweet!
@mitaroyhotelgoa, getting more people on board has never been a problem. There are literally hundreds of these GA thread in the forums over the 4.5 years I’ve been here. It still isn’t here.
Without Google Analytics, Knollers are not likely to want to come here.
I have to have Analytics, it’s not an option. I can’t believe Google foisted up off on WordPress!
I think it is necessary that they implement GA.
Necessary defined: being essential, indispensable, or requisite.
We need Google Analytics if we are to consider this a viable option. Add my vote
I don’t consider the option of running any ads on my blog that I don’t have control over to be a “viable” option.
Even I am missing the Google analytic s. I had old blog on wordpress there I was able to use the Google Analytic tool but not on my current blog. I even mailed Support but still haven’t got any updates since last 72 hours. If someone has any info how to add Google Analitic’s then please share the steps.
If Google Analytics are necessary to you, you need to be hosted elsewhere. No exceptions.
@twocfaith, you ask: ” Why doesn’t WP give the option to not include my hits when I’m logged in”?
But I see from the stats support page that: “The following are not counted… Your own visits to your blog (for logged-in users of public blogs only)”
Do you have reason to believe that your own logged-in visits to your own blog are being counted? Because the support page says that they are not. In other words, WordPress.com claims to behave in the way you want – except that it doesn’t do so by giving an option, but by always behaving in that way.
BTW, funny how little things change round here. I haven’t been a this forum for a while, I come back and find petitions for Google Analytics, @timethief and other stalwarts providing great help, and the need to link to the difference between wp.com and .org.
