Support Home > Stats > Stats Stats Stats lets you know how many visits your site gets, and what posts and pages are the most popular.

For general features and FAQs, please see our information page.

For issues with Stats, visit the troubleshooting section.

This feature is now enabled by default. If you would like to deactivate it or make sure that it is active, please visit our page on how to control Jetpack’s features.

Many plugins and services provide statistics, but data can be overwhelming. Stats makes the most popular metrics easy to understand through a clear and attractive interface. You can also use stats in conjunction with other analytics plugins and services.

Viewing your stats

You can view your stats in several different ways using Jetpack. On your main dashboard screen, the Site Stats widget for your homepage gives you at-a-glance site views and it’s active by default.

You can see your site visits, most viewed pages, and search terms people used to find your site at a glance.

Jetpack Dashboard Stats

Getting more in-depth stats from your dashboard is as easy as going to the Jetpack menu. On the primary Dashboard screen, you can see a more detailed overview of your site’s traffic.

Site stats overview with buttons to View Detailed Stats or View More Stats on
  1. The “View detailed stats” button allows you to view your stats within your dashboard. On this page, you’ll find information about Referrers, Top Posts & Pages, Search Engine Terms, Subscriptions, and Clicks. If you’d like to access these stats without JavaScript, you can add &nojs=1 to the URL and reload the page.
  2. “View more stats on” allows you to access your site’s advanced stats on There you’ll find even more details about visitors, including Views By Country, Unique Views, as well as many more insights about your site. Stats By Country Views

You can also look at stats per day, week, and month. Find out even more about Stats — including what we don’t track — on the documentation page.

Note: stats on Jetpack sites does not track or show you Totals, Followers, and Shares on your stats page. It also does not track file downloads for any files hosted on your server, such as PDF links.

You can also find even more detailed stats information at Jetpack → Site Stats.

Troubleshooting information and FAQ

Can I use other analytics services (like Google Analytics) with stats?

Yes! You can use both on your WordPress installation. The benefit of using Stats is that you can see a snapshot of your blog’s activity right from your dashboard. If you want to use another analytics service to give you additional in-depth information, you can certainly do so.

The Stats feature is active, but no visits are being recorded anymore.

Jetpack, like many other plugins, uses a function called wp_footer() to insert elements like a Stats tracking code to your site’s footer. This function has to be added to your theme’s footer.php file, right before the closing body tag. You can read more about it here.

If you’ve recently edited that file, you’ll want to make sure the wp_footer() function is still there.
If it is there, you’ll want to check for other code you may have added to your theme (like in your sidebar for example) that may break everything that comes after.

I’m a Contributor, Writer or other non-Admin role on the site and can’t see stats.

Ask the Admin on the site to go to Tools → Marketing → Traffic from your WordPress dashboard and enable stats viewing for the other roles on the site.

set who can view stats

My stats are at zero and I lost all my followers!

There’s no need to fear, Jetpack is here! We can help reconnect you to your missing stats and followers — please visit this page for more information.

Can I transfer my followers from to my new Jetpack site?

If you’ve moved from to your very own Jetpack-powered site and want to transfer your followers and email subscribers, please use our transfer tool.

I just moved my followers from to Jetpack and the stat counts are different. Why?

On, your followers and email followers are counted separately. This means that one person can follow your site on the Reader and receive email notifications when you make a new post which would count them on both lists. On Jetpack, that same follower would only be counted once under Followers on your My Followers list.

Why aren’t my site visits updating? I know people are visiting the site! stats are updated periodically throughout the day. If you see a problem with your stats not updating, please contact support here.

My stats reflect the wrong date and/or time!

Our stats get the timezone from WordPress itself, so if your stats appear to be reflecting the wrong date/time, double-check the timezone at Settings -> General in your site’s Dashboard.

How do I get more traffic?
How do I download my stats?

You can click the title of each feature on your stats page, and scroll to the bottom of that feature to download your stats. Simply click on the Download data as CSV link and download the file to your computer.

Why my VideoPress stats are not appearing?

VideoPress stats can get affected if you are not using VideoPress player, so make sure your videos are playing only via VideoPress player and not any other third-party players.

Honoring DNT

Do Not Track (DNT) is a feature in web browsers and websites that asks advertisers and other web software providers to not track individuals’ browsing habits. As a site owner, you can force the Stats feature to honor any visitors with DNT enabled and not track their activity (i.e. post and page views) by adding the following code snippet to your site:

add_filter( 'jetpack_honor_dnt_header_for_stats', '__return_true' );

  • More about adding code snippets to your site here.
  • More about the add_filter() example here.

We hope to add this as a formal setting to the Stats feature in a future release.

Please note that if you choose to honor DNT on an existing site, you may see an obvious decrease in post/page views.

Privacy Information

This feature is activated by default. While there is no deactivation control from within the Jetpack settings interface, you can deactivate it by following this guide.

Activity Tracked
Site Owners / Users

We track when, and by which user, the feature is activated and deactivated. We also track when, and which, configuration settings are modified (and by which user). If the user viewing the stats explicitly requests to view them without JavaScript turned on, we will set a cookie to remember this preference.

We also track stats page views in your dashboard.

Additionally, if the site’s settings are configured to record events for logged-in users of the site, the following events will also be recorded: post and page views, video plays (if videos are hosted by, outbound link clicks, referring URLs and search terms, and country.

You can now honor a visitor’s DNT preference, as well.

Site Visitors

Post and page views, video plays (if videos are hosted by, outbound link clicks, referring URLs and search engine terms, and country. When this feature is enabled, Jetpack also tracks performance on each page load that includes the JavaScript file we use for Stats. This is exclusively for aggregate performance tracking across Jetpack sites in order to make sure that our plugin and code is not causing performance issues. This includes the tracking of page load times and resource loading duration (image files, JavaScript files, CSS files, etc.).

A site owner can choose to honor your DNT preference.

Data Visibility and Retention

Any piece of data explicitly identifying a specific user (IP address, ID, username, etc.) is not visible to the site owner when using this feature. For example, a site owner can see that a specific post has 285 views, but he/she cannot see which specific users/accounts viewed that post.

Stats logs — containing visitor IP addresses and usernames (if available) — are retained by Automattic for 28 days and are used only for the purpose of powering this feature.
