All Stats Not Showing

    Recently, whenever I've been getting likes on my page, they don't show in my stats page. This morning, I've gotten two followers and two likes from four different people, and one comment from another. However, it only comes up as two views overall.

    What can I do to fix this?
    Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is serenakaibeauty.wordpress.com.

  2. It is possible to register likes and follows from the reader. Those will not count as views. On the average about one third of the likes I get are directly from the reader and do not show up as views. This is normal.

  3. Our stats are not real time stats and take hours to update.

    As ronscubadiver revealed above likes and shares and reblogs are not page views. In fact, likes, shares and reblogs are completely misleading when you are talking about page view stats. Your followers and anyone with a WordPress.com blog who is logged into WordPress.com can "like", "share" and "reblog" your posts in several locations such as the Reader, without ever clicking into your blog and creating a single page view stat.

    You can control the length of the entry sent out on your RSS feed here > Settings > Reading. Choose the "summary" setting for your RSS feed rather than to "full text". That will compel followers who are not using mobiles to click into the blog to read the full post which will create a page view stat.

    Visitors using a mobile can read the full post without creating a page view stat. http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/wordpresscom-reader-show-full-text?replies=31#post-1373606

    Note that setting the RSS Feed to summary does not affect the length of the post displayed on the front page or main page for posts on the blog. To create excerpts there we can split content by inserting "the more tag" http://en.support.wordpress.com/splitting-content/more-tag/

    Also note that you can disable "Sharing" on the same page:
    Settings > Reading
    Add to each article in your feed:
    Categories
    Tags
    Comment count
    Sharing
    Changes may not appear until you create a new post or your news reader refreshes.
