I hope this topic isn't already answered somewhere I haven't looked yet, but I was wondering whether the e-mail and blog reader subscriptions (I use both Feedburner and WP's own e-mail subscription) count in our stats as hits, or whether the user actually has to click through to the blog to count as a hit? I see that in the WP e-mail subscription options, I can either send out a short snippet or the whole post, and my inital thought was to send the whole post, as it can be annoying to only see a snippet. But if it makes my hits go down, maybe I shouldn't send the whole post? I know it doesn't really make any difference in the scheme of things--it's not like I have ads or huge numbers of readers--but I am kind of a stat addict :-)
The blog I need help with is misspreservation.com.
