Glad to announce that now you can access your blog analytics to measure your BlogUpp performance, very easy.
Using BlogUpp doesn't require you to have an account with us. To keep things simple, we've been exploring ways to enable authenticated access to your private area with your blog analytics and Premium benefits. As a result we've integrated OpenID - the universal authentication method used by major web sites.
makes it really easy to log in to thousands of websites with a single digital identity, represented by a simple link, which can be your blog URL. Thus, you don't have to remember many different IDs and passwords, just one.
The great news is that most blogs hosted on Blogger, WordPress, TypePad, LiveJournal, etc - have been OpenID-enabled automatically, so bloggers don't have to do any extra setup. Just click Analytics
in our menu, enter the address of your blog, and you should be in
(provided your blog has been curated already).
In rare cases when your blogging platform hasn't enabled OpenID for your blog by default, there are some easy workarounds, as follows.
For Blogger.com blogs
please do the following (should OpenID not be enabled):
• Go to www.blogger.com
and click on "Settings" > "Other";
• Look for "OpenID" section and follow the instructions to enable OpenID for your blog.
• Alternatively, copy and paste the following line between
tags of your blog:
Known issue: as of February 19, 2014 - default Blogger.com OpenID endpoint is broken and is being fixed by Blogger.com Team. In the meantime we recommend using the alternatives presented below.
blogs there is a quick solution as well to enable OpenID. Simply install the OpenID WordPress plugin
; in plugin's settings select to enable OpenID and specify the blog owner. That's it.
If the above doesn't apply to you, being a Google, Yahoo or AOL user means that you already have an OpenID identifier, without even knowing it. OpenID delegation enables you to easily transform your blog URL into an OpenID, simply by authenticating with a service you already use. In other words, OpenID delegation helps prove that you own the blog. It only requires the ability to add a small snippet of HTML code to your blog.
In case you are a Google user
, the code to be added between
tags of your blog is:
should be replaced with your Google ID number (see the number in the URL bar while being logged in and accessing your Google profile
). If you have a Google+ vanity URL, then you could get your Google ID number as follows: right mouse click any of your Google+ posts, save the URL link and your 21 digits Google+ ID number will be in the URL. The above code means:
• the blog is owned by the owner of "
• and "
" (more specifically "
") may be used to verify the ownership.
For Yahoo users
here is the code:
should be replaced with yours, which can be seen in Yahoo Account Info
section, under "Manage/Create your OpenID"
And for AOL users
OpenID enabling code is:
should be replaced with your actual AOL user ID.
As a result of above configuration, you can now enter thousands of sites, including BlogUpp
analytics and Premium area simply by providing your blog's URL. Moreover, while being authenticated through your blog as an OpenID, while commenting in the blogosphere your blog is linked back automatically
, with no effort. Isn't that cool? We hope as a blogger you'll appreciate that.
