BlogUpp is sharing analytics
, the easy way - so that you don't need to have an account with us to access blog analytics.
With all those websites requiring you to register to use their services, it's not easy to remember all the user IDs and passwords. Things get a lot simpler with OpenID
, which allows to log in to thousands of websites with a single digital identity, represented by a simple URL, which can be your blog URL.
We now support OpenID too, and it allows to access blog analytics with BlogUpp just by entering your blog address
. It's that simple! Most blogs hosted on Blogger, WordPress, TypePad, LiveJournal and alike have been OpenID-enabled automatically. Just click “Analytics
” in upper menu, enter the address of your blog that has an active BlogUpp widget, and that's it – you should be in.
For blogs on blogspot.com
please do the following, should OpenID not be automatically enabled:
• Go to www.blogger.com
, and click on "Settings";
• Choose the tab "OpenID" and follow the instructions to make sure the blog is OpenID-enabled.
• Alternatively, please paste the following line in the header of your blog:
<link rel="openid.server" href="http://www.blogger.com/openid-server.g" />

For custom domain blogs on wordpress.org
- there is a quick solution as well to enable OpenID. Simply install the OpenID plugin
, then in plugin's settings select to enable OpenID and specify the blog owner. That's it.
Alternatively, the following steps should be followed. Firstly, get an OpenID
from sites like Yahoo, AOL, which might already have your OpenID identifier, without you even knowing it. Then through OpenID delegation
you can easily transform your blog URL into an OpenID
. It only requires the ability to add a small snippet of HTML code to your blog. Basically, OpenID helps prove that you own the blog.
For example, in case of myOpenID issued identifiers, the code to be added into the
<head> of the blog would look like:
<link rel="openid.server" href="http://www.myopenid.com/server" />
<link rel="openid.delegate" href="http://your_name.myopenid.com/" />
which says that your blog is owned by the owner of "
http://your_name.myopenid.com/" and "
http://www.myopenid.com/server" may be used to verify the ownership of "
For an AOL OpenID, the code would look like:
<link rel="openid.server" href="https://api.screenname.aol.com/auth/openidServer" />
<link rel="openid.delegate" href="http://openid.aol.com/screenname" />
More examples of OpenID code snippets will be posted in the comments below, and we welcome you to share the OpenID snippet that worked for your blog. For more information about OpenID, visit OpenIDexplained.com or OpenID.net.
