Can you change what the email notifications say?

  1. One of the people who gets e-mail notifications when I post mentioned to me that the e-mails show my entire post, so she never actually goes to the page, so even though she reads it every day, she wouldn't show up in the visitor count or page views. Is there a way for the emails to only show THAT I posted, not the whole post? Or if they open the email does it show up in the visitor/page view count?

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

  2. Likes and shares are misleading when you are talking about page view stats. Your followers and anyone with a WordPress.com or Gravatar account who is logged into WordPress.com can "like" and "share" your posts in several locations such as in email and the Reader without ever clicking into your blog and creating a page view stat. It's only when a visitor clicks into the site that a page view stat is created.

    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 not "full text".

    That will motivate followers to click into the blog to read the full post thereby creating a page view stat. It 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/

    You can disable "Sharing" on the same page:
    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.
