problem with stats - can you help?

    I know for a fact that I have followers and viewers in the u.s. but they don't show any more in my stats since a couple of month. I do empty the cache after every session in firefox as well as cookies as a rule. no restrictions on my firewall or antivirus program. I tried all I could think of and then some and now I would very much know the reason for this behaviour if you could give me one.
    it is not a life or dead situation, I'd just like to know every once in a while who is actually reading my blog which I love doing with worldpress since 1 year already.
    thank you in advance
    best regards
    gabrielle

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

  2. Be aware that our stats are not real time stats. For details see here http://en.support.wordpress.com/stats/ Note the views and viewers take hours to update.

    Also know that those who follow your blog in the Reader or by email don't have to click into the blog unless they wish to. Likes, follows, shares and reblogs are not page views and 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", "share" and "reblog" your posts in several locations such as the Reader, without ever clicking into your blog and creating a single page view stat.

    I'll tag this thread for Staff to take a close look at your stats. Please subscribe to the thread so you are notified when they respond and please be patient while waiting.

  3. I'm not seeing anything unusual about your stats. However, your blog has a relatively low volume of traffic, and you can boost that by using categories and tags so that your posts show up under those topics in our Reader:

    thank you for your help specially the first answer sounds like a logique explanation. as for the traffic volume thank you for the tips to boost - but my post are basically intended to reach family and personal friends all over the world.
    this thread can be closed as far as I am concerned, I have no more questions about this topic.

  5. You're very welcome. I'll close this thread, but feel free to post a new one if you run into any other issues.
