    Hello,

    how do I delete the listing of my former test blog I was running on my domain from Global Dashboard? The blog I want to remove from my Global Dashboard is : site.com/a

    I want to keep only the main one: site.com , I deleted already the files from my server (from /a directory)

    Thanks for the help,
    Betty

    What is the "global dashboard"?

    It's http://dashboard.wordpress.com/ I think it's something like main WordPress profile, may have something to do with API,not sure...

    Anyone can advice?

    It's starting to get annoying : seems this info is passed somehow to Google, and it tries to crawl a blog that doesn't exist !!!

    Thus it makes my whole ranking low (too many 404 errors, not reached, etc).

    How can a non-existent blog be in the Global Dashboard?

    I have the same issue. Can we get some advice on this?

    I gave it up.. seems no one can advice on this.

    Rob I recommend you to setup robots.txt on your site to disallow that directory from being re-crawled by search engines.

    I don't think there is a way to remove your blog immediately but if you stop using the Stats plugin after a while, it will disappear from global dashboard.

    I'm afraid it doesn't work that way... the blog in question has been deleted already a week or two.

    I have the same question.

    then you're in the wrong place... you should be over on wordpress.com - this is wordpress.org, for self-hosted blogs.

    *sigh* No.

    I have a self-hosted WordPress blog. That wordpress blog is tied to the global dashboard at wordpress.com by my API, the same API that is used for WordPress.com stats, which I am using on my self-hosted blog. Which, to be absolutely clear, was downloaded from wordpress.org and is hosted at timwheatley.org. Clearer?

    Even when you have a self-hosted blog, you can login to the global .com dashboard with your account (actually required to get an API) and view your stats there. You can also watch other blogs (both .com and .org blogs - as long as they have .com stats).

    I want to remove a blog which hasn't had an active post - and hasn't existed - for months, from my stats, which are linked to the global dashboard, by wordpress.com stats.

    Sorry for the long winded reply, but I think it appears needed.

    Thanks.

    Even the initial poster clearly states:

    I want to keep only the main one: site.com , I deleted already the files from my server (from /a directory)

    Does wordpress.com give him/her server access of that sort? No.

    I am in the same boat.

    I have a wordpress.com blog/account.

    I have a wordpress.org account with a self-hosted blog which no longer exists that shows up in the global dashboard at wordpress.com because I needed to get the API for WP Stats & Akismet plugins.

    I now want to map the domain of my wordpress.com blog to the domain that the self-hosted blog was on. Can't do it. I want to delete the self-hosted blog off the drop-down at wordpress.com. How?

    sorry guys, but no matter which way you slice it, that's still a question about wordpress.COM and removing the entry from there.

    ...despite you having a self-hosted blog at some point, that blog is gone (as was the OP's and timwheatley's apparently...) and once that blog was gone, so was your ability to find your answers here.

    You should be asking over THERE, about how to remove your self-hosted blog from the wp.com global dashboard.

    This is a WordPress.com Stats issue on self hosted blogs. The plugin is supported (hahahahahahaha) here, is it not?

    well, I'm sure you're going to interpret it that way - but if the problem is removing your site from the wordpress.com global dashboard, so that change can be reflected in the stats plugin, then I'm afraid your issue isn't with the plugin - it's with wordpress.com

    this information that you're trying to remove is stored over there, right?

    what's so difficult about asking over there? Clearly you've got an account, you need one to get an API key, so just ask them about how to remove whatever you need to remove.

    I've dropped a line to Support at WordPress.com to see if there is anything they can do. Has anyone else gotten this issue resolved (whether here or at wordpress.com)?

    Thank you,
    Kristan

    UPDATE: Actually, dropping a line to Support IS the solution. I think they're the only ones who can delete a WordPress ORG site off the WordPrses COM global dashboard. (At least at this time.) But they are very nice and speedy about it!

    UPDATE:

    i think i have a solution without contact with support,
    correct me if i am wrong.

    i installed the "wordpress.com stats" plugin on a wordpress blog i host myself (besides wordpress.com), after entering my API key from wordpress.com.
    i got the option to 'Add new blog to my account' and 'Replace an existing blog'.
    see screenshot

    to prevent '<b>this info is passed somehow to Google</b>';
    on wordpress.com/profile/?edit=true on the bottom of the page you can change options of your "Profile Layout", with on the right select from "My Blogs" if they are visible.

    Rud5G: thank you for showing the way :)

    I had the same problem, except I actually moved my blog from domain.com/blog form to domain.com. That would cause my stats were still working, but all the links, from the global dashboard pointing to my blog were broken.

    I've deleted the "stats_options" option from the wp_options table. And I had reenterd my API key, and replace the URI just like you explained.

    kristanlh, how were you able to contact WordPress.com support? I tried filling out the support form, but it requires a blog url which must be a wordpress.com blog.
    I do not have a wordpress.com blog.

    Any news regarding the problem from transbetty? I have the same problem! My test blog is still listet there and I want it to disappear. I can chose my "main blog" from a list but there is still the other one.

    have the same problem. Somehow I have two exactly same self-hosted blogs registered in my global dashboard, one of them has empty stats, the other one the correct ones. There is a link to ad more blogs, but nowhere a link to remove them - ??? Apart of that, if I try to contact the wordpress.com support, all I get is an advice, that I have a selfhosted blog and should go to wp.org and stop hassling wp.com... ??? again
    Now tell me, how on earth I can remove the second same blog with the empty statistics from my Global dashboard at wp.com??? thanks
