For WordPress.com blog, the stats feature is available natively. However, this feature needs to be configured manually for self-hosted WordPress.org blogs.

Here are the steps to configure Stats option for self-hosted WordPress.org blogs

1. Install Jetpack plugin

You need Jetpack or the stand-alone Stats plugin to see stats for your self-hosted WordPress blog. WordPress recommends to use Jetpack as it’ll be updated with app-specific functions in the future.

Thanks for the information on this nice plugin. It is very handy for a blogger who wants to constantly monitor the traffic a blog gets on a real time basis.

Thanks for the article; maybe you can help with another problem I have. I have three Wordpress.com blogs all accessed under the same login. One of these (the second one I created) is my main blog, the one I want the stats for. However the wordpress for ios app displays stats only for the first blog I made (the one for which I created my Wordpress account). Any way of changing which blog the stats get reported for? Thanks.

My app worked fine with .com but whilst will show posts on .org won’t show stats. It displays no chart data found.

I have jet pack linked to my .com account.

Any ideas?
