Just a comment:
When updating our website, I get a spike in traffic of course. I think that somehow this admin traffic should be reflected in a separate collection spot on the traffic count.
I know it is consoling to see activity on a site that is otherwise seldom visited.... But it should be shown as ADMIN activity, not true VISITOR activity.
Just something for your drawing board.
We enjoy all that Word Press does for the blogging world!
The blog I need help with is fgffv.wordpress.com.
