Viewer count

  1. Has anyone noticed that their viewer count is messed up? I have likes under new posts, but the stats show no one read those posts. Today I have a new post and 20 view from australia but nowhere else. I live in the U.S. and after publicizing my posts to several websites usually get a flood of traffic from U.S. people.

    I have also seen my numbers jump from a single digit to a VERY high double digit in a two minute span.

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

  2. 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.

    I choose to reduce my RSS Feed to "summary" here > Settings > Reading
    For each article in a feed, show
    Full text
    Summary
    Doing that compels followers to click in and read the full post on my blogs.

  3. I have also seen my numbers jump from a single digit to a VERY high double digit in a two minute span.

    When I see that happening I use copyscape http://www.copyscape.com/ to determine which blog scrapers are stealing my content.

  4. I checked out your link and I am not having that problem. I have had comments and like show up that aren't being noted on my counts. I have never had 29 views from australia as my biggest viewer and nothing from the U.S.

    Sorry about "rabbit hopping" I am just looking for answers.

  5. WordPress.com stats are not real time stats. that means they take time to update. Also as I posted above one does not need to click into your blog and create a page view stat to click a like button.

    Why don’t post/page views add up to total views?
    Post/page views are included in total views, but there are many views to your site that are not a post or page URL. The front pages, category/tag/date/author archives, and searches are all examples of other views that only count towards total views. http://en.support.wordpress.com/stats/#additional-info

    I'll flag this thread and have Staff take a look at your blog. Please be patient while waiting. :)

  6. Hi Wendy,

    I just wanted to let you know that I've viewed your stats and everything looks fine.
