Site stats? (5 posts)

    Hi guys

    This page: http://en.support.wordpress.com/stats/ says you can get site stats for your blog. This is what I need. However that page says you go to "Dashboard > Site Stats" and the graphic underneath shows the navigation.

    My problem is when I click on Dashboard the only option that appears is "Updates". So 'My Comments' and 'Tag Surfer' and 'Site Stats' etc from that graphic don't appear.

    Can anyone help? I can't seem to access the site stats?

    Thanks :)

    Hey martyncox,

    What's the address of your site? If it's martyncox.wordpress.com or similar then you should have WordPress Site Stats installed. However if you've set up your own self hosted WordPress site on your own domain then you'll need to install this plugin:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/stats/ I think it works on self hosted sites as well as wordpress.com but don't quote me on that cause I used Google Analytics for my site stats.

    Hope that helps!

    Hi Bronson

    Brilliant thanks. Yeah it's self-hosted.

    I've installed the plugin but it's now asking for an API key. It says I can get this from clicking on 'My account' but again I have no option in my dashboad that says that. I've also found this link:


    But I have no logon that works on this site.

    Any ideas how I get one?

    Cheers :)

    Register on WordPress.com to get an API key. You don't need WordPress.com blog, but you do need an account.

    cubecolour has you sorted!

    If you want to go the Google Analytics open then you can sign up here for free: http://www.google.com/analytics/ then I recommend this plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ultimate-google-analytics/ to push your stats into Google Analytics.

    Then when you want to check you stats then you log into Analytics to see it.

    Good luck!
