[Resolved] Importing stats and social data from WordPress.com
I’ve connected Jetpack to my WordPress account, on which I have several WordPress.com blogs. How do I connect my self-hosted site (blog.knod.es) with the WordPress.com site (knodes.wordpress.com) so that I can get the stats and social data, likes on posts, etc.?
Did you do an export of your WordPress.com site into your self-hosted site? If so, I can combine the stats for you. Let me know! However, note that only the stats will be combined; we are working on introducing that functionality for a future release.
Yes! That would be great. I’ve got the social data imported, would be great to have visitors and views as well 🙂
Great, I’ve merged the stats for you. Let me know if anything looks wonky!
Hey there Richard. I think I’m having a similar issue. I’ve used an importer plugin to move my blog posts from kingglutenfree.wordpress.com over to kingglutenfree.projectawesome.ca
The posts came over fine but I’d like to have all the social shares and stats come over to the new site before I officially change the web address. Any advice on how I can make that happen?
@ctindale: I can transfer your subscribers for you, s well as your stats, but I can’t transfer the social share counts, as those are determined by the individual services’ APIs. Would you like tme to move your stats and subscribers for you?
Yes, that would be great. What do you need to know for that?
@ ctindale: Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Has this been fixed for you already? If not, do you still want me to move things for you? I ask, because I see that you are still posting on kingglutenfree.wordpress.com.
Hey there Richard. You’re correct, I’ve kept posting on kingglutenfree.wordpress.com until the transfer of the domain name is all complete.
I actually wrote back to you on a page I found here, http://richardarchambault.ca/contact/ thinking that we could figure things out through email and ended up getting a reply from another helpful WordPress Engineer.
I’m partially sorted out. I looked at the instructions for just pointing the URL at my other subdomain but GoDaddy’s page didn’t quite match the instructions so I’m going to try and transfer the domain instead. Then I’ll be able to point it at the new blog.
Thanks. You’ve both been helpful. I’ve used a few other web platforms and I’m pretty happy and impressed with WordPress so far.
