Number of views change, likes disappear.

  1. I just noticed that someone "liked" my latest blog, the views went up. But seconds later the views went back down and the "like" disappeared. I was wondering if there is a "glitch" here.

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

  2. We can "unlike" a post we have previously "liked". A follower can click the “like” button without visiting your blog and creating a page view stat.

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

    P.S. To compel readers to click into my blog to read the full post I have set my RSS Feed to “summary” on this page > Settings > Reading

  3. I was thinking that the viewer could have simply changed their mind or made a mistake and unliked it, but they cannot bring a view stat back down. But thanks for the suggestion.

  4. That's right. If I click into the blog and click "like" and then click agin to "unlike" the view stats remains because I did click into the blog and that's a page view stat.

  5. I was referring to this blog, not the first blog listed above:

    http://deepthoughts123.wordpress.com/

    The stat did change--it went down from what I saw.

  6. Thanks for clarifying which blog you are concerned about. I have flagged this thread so Staff look into this one missing stat issue for you.

  7. And I bring this up because my new post has 0 views (other than my own) over 24 hours later, which has never happened before.
