Stats Suddenly Stopped Working 2 days ago?

    Suddenly my stats are at zero for both views and visitors yet I'm still getting lots of notifications to say people are liking posts etc so I know it's the wordpress stats that have stopped counting :(
    I haven't changed anything (no new plug-ins or widgets) recently.
    Anyone know how to fix?

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

  2. Re: stats, likes and shares
    Our stats are not real time stats. The data is cached and takes hours to update. See here for more on stats > http://en.support.wordpress.com/stats/

    The WordPress.com like button, like every other in-house use only like button (example: Facebook) can only be used by those who have registered WordPress.com username accounts when they are logged in to WordPress.com. http://en.support.wordpress.com/likes/

    Likes are not page views. In fact, likes and shares 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" and "share" your posts in several locations such as the Reader without ever clicking into your blog and creating a page view stat. See here for what I do to compel readers to read posts on my site > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2012/07/09/wordpress-followers-likes-and-stats

    There is no FTP access to our free hosted WordPress.com blogs and we bloggers cannot install plugins.

    FTP access, plugins and third party themes are available only for VIP bloggers http://vip.wordpress.com/our-services/ or for those with WordPress.ORG installs. http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/
