Services and stats

This tab is only needed if you are using our Stats service (free or paid) or our Media Hosting. You must setup stats or hosting at blubrry.com BEFORE filling out this tab.

In order to access your Blubrry services from your blog website, you need to link your blog to your Blubrry.com account.

You must add your podcast to Blubrry.com and then sign-up for either Free Statistics, Premium Statistics or Podcast Media Hosting to proceed.

Step 1. Go to the PowerPress settings page and select the “Services and Statistics” tab.

Step 2. Click the link  “Click Here to configure your Blubrry Statistics and Hosting services.”

Step 3. Enter your Blubrry.com Email address and password. Select either “Statistics only” or “Statistics and Hosting Integration.” Then click “Save.”

Note: If you are not a paying hosting customer, selecting option “Statistics and Hosting Integration” will fail.

Step 4. If you are prompted with a second page, go ahead and select the program you wish to add to this blog and then click “Save.”

Your blog with PowerPress is now linked to your Blubrry.com services.

Gmail users note: Even though you may have created your account at Blubrry.com with your Gmail email address and password, upon completing your first sign-in you were asked to enter a new password. This new password is specifically for Blubrry Services Integration. Because of limitations with the authentication protocol available by Google, we cannot use your Gmail password in our API. If you forgot your Blubrry.com password, please go to Forgot Blubrry Password to start the process of resetting it.
