view count is off

  1. Why did I get 3 likes today and no views?
    I got at least 3 hits today, and yet they were not recorded. That is annoying.

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

  2. Here ya go: http://en.support.wordpress.com/stats/

    It says people can like your posts without actually visiting your site. Example: http://wordpress.com/#!/read/following/

    :)

  3. 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/

  4. Ok, thanks guys! I appreciate your responding. I wish WordPress would change it so that those reads all get counted as views.

  5. Hi there,
    You're welcome.
    P.S. IMO this is not likely to be changed.
