How soon will tracking start?

I just installed the Wordpress plugin today and activated it. How soon can I start seeing data? Right now it's saying 0 visitors so far for today, but I've personally visited the site, so there should be at least 1 visitor showing. (I don't have the feature enabled where you can hide visits from your own IP address.)

You should see traffic appear within seconds. Do a 'view source' on the web page and make sure you can see your tracking code.

Yup I can see it -- in two different places. I'm concerned now because in one of those places, it has my WordPress user name and also the email address associated with my WordPress account. I realize that not to many people would be looking at my source code, but still... spam harvesting bots can read that, right?

OK, user error here! I realized I failed to put in the site key and site ID earlier, just fixed that so I'm hoping I'll see data soon! Meanwhile, I figured out how to fix the user name and email so they don't show up in the source code. Thanks for your help!

For WordPress, use the Yoast plugin if you aren't already.
