Is it possible to get stats from before you signed up for Analytics?

Hi there!  I have been blogging for about 4 years now and, as ridiculous as it seems, I hadn't realized that I would need to add an analytic ID to my blog in order for me to start getting stats.  I now need to know what my unique visitor numbers are for a potential upcoming campaign and I'm in a panic because I can't figure it out!  My analytic stats only show for a few hours vs this month, or really any month before last night.  Is there someway I could figure it out?  I get around 10,000 pageviews a month... is there a safe high estimate I could use to pass on the information?  Help!

Hi Kataryna,

In order to collect data from your site you need to have an analytics account with a property set up and the tracking code added to your website. Google Analytics can track only when the tracking tag is sending the data from your website. So if you had no GA account set up and the tracking code installed on your site unfortunately there is no way to see any stats for the past.
