There are some days when the number of 'likes' I get on my posts exceeds the number of views. I have also noticed that while my number of followers is growing steadily (thank you, all of you) the number of views is not growing correspondingly. I have concluded that this might be because many of the actual views and some of the likes are entered through the Reader and the person never actually clicks through to the Webpage. (Many of my posts are simply a photograph). Thus they are not included in the Stats.
Have I got this right? And if so what can I do to include within my stats these additional likes and Reader views to get a truer impression of the number of people seeing my website.
