How to consume Stats package

Install the right packages

First, let's make sure that the automattic/jetpack-stats package is set up in your composer.json file:

At minimum you need three things. One is the automattic/jetpack-autoloader package, which will ensure that you're not colliding with any other plugins on the site that may be including the same packages. Two, of course, is the automattic/jetpack-stats package. Third is our automattic/jetpack-config package that will be your tool for initializing the packages.

Initialize the package

Second, we must initialize ("configure") the jetpack-stats package within your plugin, and provide the information about it.

This is where the jetpack-config and jetpack-autoload packages come into play. Do this, and you're ready to start consuming the Jetpack connection!

use Automattic\Jetpack\Config;

require_once plugin_dir_path( __FILE__ ) . '/vendor/autoload_packages.php';

function jpcs_load_plugin() {

	// Here we enable the Jetpack packages.
	$config = new Config();
	$config->ensure( 'stats' );
}

add_action( 'plugins_loaded', 'jpcs_load_plugin', 1 );

Tracking Pixel

Stats Package uses a tracking pixel to send information to WordPress.com.

This is done by enqueueing a JavaScript file in the footer of the site https://stats.wp.com/e-202103.js (the number changes every week but the file remains the same). That JavaScript file, in turn, inserts a tracking pixel to the end of the page. For example: https://pixel.wp.com/g.gif?lots_of_parameters_here When that tracking pixel is loaded by the browser, it effectively sends information to WordPress.com about what needs to be logged on.

Parameters tracked

Default parameters

The default parameters being tracked are built with the Automattic\Jetpack\Stats\TrackingPixel::build_view_data function.

  • v: (internal) Used to distinguish self-hosted sites from the ones hosted on WordPress.com. Enum: ext, wpcom
  • blog: The blog ID of the site
  • post: The id of the post for the site. 0 if it is not a post.
  • tz: The GMT offset
  • srv: THe URL of the server.

How to extend default parameters

There is a filter that can be used to track more parameters. stats_array

add_filter( 'stats_array', 'filter_stats_array_add_custom_stat' );

/**
 * Add custom stat to the stats tracking data.
 *
 * @param  param array $kvs The stats array in key values.
 * @return array
 */
function filter_stats_array_add_custom_stat( $kvs ) {
	$kvs['custom_stat'] = 'my_custom_stat'
	return $kvs;
