Google Analytics is free, powerful tool for tracking your website statistics. In early May, Google raised the bar again, launching a major upgrade to Google Analytics, featuring a slick new user interface and vastly improved features for slicing and dicing data and making comparisons across time and between sections of your site.
Not surprisingly bloggers do show up on the wordpress.com forum who want to use Google analytics. However, wordpress.com bloggers are sharing a multi-user blogging platform. Only one Google urchin script can be run on a any site at any time and, WordPress already runs Google analytics on our blogs to determine our blog stats.
If you feel that this information is critical to your blogging experience then please note that there is another wordpress option for you. You can hire a web host and download free wordpress.org software.
