Jetpack and WordPress.com Updated Stats

This week, code was released on WordPress.com that affects all WordPress.com sites and self-hosted enabled Jetpack sites. The code makes using WordPress.com much faster and much more powerful, and it also includes some major changes to the way you interact with your stats.

Stats are important for blog / website owners as you want to know how many people are coming to your site and consuming your content.

These stats aren’t as powerful as Google Analytics, but if you don’t want to hassle with setting up a second service, these stats will be perfect for you.

You can view all the metrics for your site like views, visitors, likes, and comments for your entire site, or for a specific day.

The stats pages have been completely reinvented to be mobile friendly, so at a glance you can see how much engagement you are getting, right from your phone.

If you use WordPress.com or a Jetpack enabled self-hosted WordPress site, check out the stats by going to WordPress.com/stats.

If you aren’t using Jetpack, what are you waiting for? Install today!
