[resolved] Best Practice for managing Jetpack and multiple blogs (3 posts)

    What is the best practice for people managing multiple blog that use Jetpack? When I set up the blogs I used a different userid at WordPress.com for each blog. Recently I installed Jetpack on my self-hosted blogs and connected each blog to its own userid. Now when I use the WordPress for Android client it shows the statistics for one blog okay but it gives me a message that stats could not be refreshed at this time for the other blog. When I use a regular web browser I can see the statistics on the blog.

    1. Should I have used one userid for all of the blogs rather than separate userids?
    2. If I was supposed to use one userid, what is the best way to consolidate userids?

    You can indeed connected multiple blogs to the same WordPress.com account, that won't create any problems.

    You can always go back and change the WordPress.com account associated to a specific Jetpack site by going to the Jetpack menu in the dashboard, click on the disconnect button in the top right corner, then reconnect to WordPress.com with another WordPress.com account.
    As soon as you reconnect, your stats and subscribers will be back, and will be assigned to the new user.

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks, I followed your instructions and it worked like a charm. I found that I had to delete the account on my WordPress for Android client and re-install it to get it by the "statistics could not refreshed at this time" error message. That allowed me to update the userid it uses to access WordPress.com.
