When I use ghostery on chrome, it finds Quantcast, wordpress stats and google analytics on my sites (nathanblack.com and knuckletattoos.com). I have jetpack and google analytics installed, but where is quantcast coming from and how do I remove it?

Disable all plugins and switch to TwentyEleven. Does it still happen? – toscho Nov 21 '12 at 9:52
I was looking at nathanblack.com and I did not find any quantcast code in your source (found wordpress stats and GA). – kidakaka Nov 21 '12 at 9:59

Quantcast is coming from the Stats component of JetPack.

You can:

  1. Disable Jetpack Stats
  2. Directly block Quantcast, such as via the DoNotTrack Plugin

I found out Quant.js is also in Jetpack Comments because of the iFrame. What is your opinion about this blogpost of me and do you think I have to look out for other commenting system because I assume they are going to insert it back again (don't know for what purpose)....

So answer to question: also deactivate Jetpack Comments, check out this post .

Kind regards,

Hi, Willem, nice catch. Would be better if you included a summary of that forum thread. A Q&A site works differently from a forum, check the tour page to get the general picture. Welcome to WordPress Development! – brasofilo Feb 24 '13 at 3:34
