likes more than views?

  1. hi,

    today i checked the latest post i've published, and there are more likes to the post that views... (i checked it
    in the statistics summaries).

    this is the link to the post -
    http://wp.me/p25syG-6d

    how can it be?

    thanks.

    g.

    The blog I need help with is 1volcman.wordpress.com.

  2. There are several different ways that readers can start following your blog.

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/followers/

    A follower can click the “like” button when viewing your posts in the Readomatic reader on the home page of WordPress.com without visiting your blog or the Topic pages. An email subscriber can click the “like” button in the email they receive of your new posts without visiting your blog.

  3. thanks for the quick reply.
    i didn't notice the 'like' button in the reader (which i barely use).

  4. You're welcome.

  5. me again.
    today i've published a new post, that has only 3 views, but also 9 likes.
    i checked the list of likes, and only 1 of them is subscribed to the blog.
    how come there's a different?

    thanks.

  6. I'd like to know this , too. I posted last night and within an hour or two had 6 likes even though I had one visit (me, from another computer), and I have 0 followers. Nobody has looked at or followed my blog, but I have 6 likes.

    I suspect there is a way of doing this from the tags, since this is the first post I used tags on. I also suspect it is to drum up visits to the posts of the "likers".

  7. To the two points in your last paragraph: Yes, and yes. They are liking it from the reader and they are trying to draw your attention to their blogs, most likely.
