In the dashboard there's a statistics page that shows you the hits on the various blog posts and the referrers. I've been wondering why there's a discrepancy between the referrers and the actual hits.
For instance, at the time of writing there have been 327 visitors to my blog today (according to the chart). There are 123 referrers, and 219 reads (the top posts).
I'm just curious about how these numbers relate to each other. Anyone care to give a definitions? Why are there so few referrers compared to visits? Is every referrer shown? If someone sends a link in email, is it shown in the referrers-table?
