Jetpack by WordPress.com
[resolved] Stats documentation (3 posts)

    When searching for documentation/features explanation for the Jetpack plugin, I am presented with this page. However, the link provided is documentation specifically for stats in WordPress.com blogs. Parts of it are different and it's not clear which parts I can assume apply to the WordPress.org plugin. Is there another page to which I should be referring?

    I'm trying to figure out how this link would be tracked

    Since it's leading to one of my posts, but not via the WP permalink, would it just be added to total views? Or should it show up as a referrer?

    The Google tracking parameters will be ignored by Jetpack Stats, and this visit will be added to the Total views.

    You will need to use Google Analytics if you want to track your links using campaign parameters like these.

    Thanks -- I kind of figured that but couldn't be sure based on the somewhat confusing documentation.
