Stats incorrect

  1. Hi,

    My stats are showing incorrect numbers and figures. can anyone help?

    The blog I need help with is roshnii179.com.

  2. Exactly what do you think is incorrect? Our stats are not real time stats. For details see here http://en.support.wordpress.com/stats/ and note the views and viewers take hours to update.

    Also note 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 and shares and reblogs and follows are not page views. They are completely 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 "follow" your blog, "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.

    Visitors using a mobile can read the full post without creating a page view stat. http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/wordpresscom-reader-show-full-text?replies=31#post-1373606

    You can control the length of the entry sent out on your RSS feed here > Settings > Reading. Choose the "summary" setting for your RSS feed rather than to "full text". That will compel followers who are not using mobiles to click into the blog to read the full post which will create a page view stat.
