Why are my site stats not updating?

    My blog is not updating stats. I tried changing the theme, but that didn't seem to help. I have another site that does seem to be updating, but kmgregoryhealth.wordpress.com doesn't seem to be responsive. (I do get email indicating likes and follows) Please advise.

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

  2. Our stats are not real time stats and take hours to update. For details see here please > http://en.support.wordpress.com/stats/

    Be aware that likes and shares and reblogs are not page views. In fact, likes, shares and reblogs are completely 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", "share" and "reblog" your posts in several locations such as the Reader, without ever clicking into your blog and creating a single page view stat.

    You can control the length of the entry sent out on your RSS feed here > Settings > Reading. Choose the "summary" setting for your RSS feed rather than to "full text". That will compel followers who are not using mobiles to click into the blog to read the full post which will create a page view stat.

    Visitors using a mobile can read the full post without creating a page view stat. http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/wordpresscom-reader-show-full-text?replies=31#post-1373606

    Note that setting the RSS Feed to summary does not affect the length of the post displayed on the front page or main page for posts on the blog. To create excerpts there we can split content by inserting "the more tag" http://en.support.wordpress.com/splitting-content/more-tag/

    Also note that you can disable "Sharing" on the same page:
    Settings > Reading
    Add to each article in your feed:
    Categories
    Tags
    Comment count
    Sharing
    Changes may not appear until you create a new post or your news reader refreshes.

    Ok... I understand what you are saying, but there is seriously nothing in the stats. And since this is a new (and virtually unknown) blog someone must be clicking something in order to read it, yes? I have 4 likes and a few follows... and no one is viewing it? How are they seeing it? I have even had people who are not signed in to WP go directly to the site and read it, but that stat doesn't show up either...
