Number of "views today" keeps going down and then up and down again

  1. I noticed this problem a few days ago, but today it's even worse. If I refresh the site stats page, the number of "views today" will decrease, then if I refresh again it might go up and then down again. It's a small number, usually 8 or less, but I wonder if it's just an insignificant glitch or if there's a real problem.

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

  2. We Volunteers answering questions on these support forums cannot help with stats fluctuations issues. Have you reported your concern to Staff?

  3. Not yet, but I will now. Thank you, timethief.

  4. Maybe I'll wait another day and see what it does. It's not a big deal, but it's puzzling.

  5. I have the same problem >.>

  6. To be frank I have been here for over 5 1/2 years and I don't ever fret about stats. I focus on creating content and by the time I have created some draft posts for future publication and I check my stats the next day they have rectified.

  7. Stats are not realtime and their existence is spread across several datacenters.

    Depending on how often you refresh, you may access a different datacenter that does not have the most up to date stats.

    I recommend checking your stats no more often than every 30 minutes.

  8. Thanks, macmanx - that's good to know.

  9. You're welcome!
