My statistics will not work.

  1. Three people have liked my latest post, but the stats say it only has one view. I also know that my friends have subscribed via email, but the stats show no email subscriptions. Thanks

  2. For clarity likes and shares numbers are 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" and "share" your posts in several locations such as the Reader without ever clicking into your blog and creating a page view stat. Those who have username accounts only but no blog can become followers and click the "like" and/or "share" buttons. Those who do not have accounts cannot use the like button. http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2012/07/09/wordpress-followers-likes-and-stats/

    Note: To compel readers to click into my blog to read the full post thereby creating a page view stat, I have set my RSS Feed for posts to “summary” on this page > Settings > Reading

  3. You can view your followers via this link http://wordpress.com/#!/my-stats/?blog_subscribers

    Go to your site stats page and click “Totals, Followers & Shares”
    Click the Blog link under the number and the Site Stats » My Followers page will open. Click the Email Followers link.

    http://wordpress.com/#!/my-stats/?blog_subscribers
    http://wordpress.com/#!/my-stats/?blog_subscribers&type=email

    The subscriber stats on your site stats page show you all the users that have active email subscriptions to your blog using the built-in email notification system on WordPress.com. They don’t include users that subscribed using a third-party subscription service or using RSS.

    Please confirm you settings on this page > Settings > Discussion

  4. Thank you both! =D
