Jetpack is one of the most used plugins for WordPress. It has many features that I routinely set up for clients, including simple site statistics, brute force attack protection, and sharing features. The free version is fine for all of these offerings.
In order to connect your plugin, I need you to set up a WordPress.com account. Here are the steps to follow:
Step 1) Sign up for an account
Step 2) Verify your email address. They will send you an email and you must verify your account.
Step 3) Once you find the email, click to confirm your account. If you don’t see it in your inbox, check your spam folder. It comes from firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step 4) After you confirm your account, you will be sent to WordPress.com.
Step 5) Go ahead and close your window. You don’t need to do anything else on your own.
