Just heard about a new “official” plugin called Automattic Stats. I haven’t had a chance to test drive it much, since it needs a period of time once it’s installed on your blog to deliver any sort of stats.
Prepare to enter your WordPress API code in the same way you would for Akismet.
Somewhat annoying—although it seems that the stats plugin is installed straight onto your own blog (it even sits in you Dashboar) the link just sends you to WordPress.com’s Global Dashboard. For purists like me (who took to WordPress because it could be installed on my own space) this can be…well…unacceptable.
Try at your own risk.
