Clicks: clicks through to e-mail message? Hacker?

  1. My clicks shows a link that I'm absolutely positive is NOT on my blog anywhere (I triple-checked and I didn't ever send such a message).

    When I click on the url, it calls up my e-mail with an e-mail showing the URL for one of my blog posts, and a message that says, Check out this post, followed by a link to the post again. The To line is not filled out.

    All my posts are password protected so only someone with the password could see it.

    I do not have share buttons on my blog and shares reads 0 anyway.

    I tried recreating this several ways, while logged in and while logged out and can't get another click to show.

    Can someone explain this?

    Thanks

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

  2. I suppose it's possible that a visitor had an email bookmarklet in their browser.

    Please contact us via http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/ so we can take a closer look.

  3. It sounds to me like somebody emailed your post. Nothing particularly unusual.

  4. Thanks.

    I guess what I don't understand is why it would show up in the Clicks section as being clicked through a link on my blog if it came from a bookmarklet or someone e-mailing a post?

  5. It does, though. The Email button in the Share options shows as a click, browser extensions show as a click too.
