Why don't my traffic stats show up?

    Why don't my traffic stats show up? I have people liking my posts- but all of my posts show no visitors.

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

  2. Hi there,
    Likes and shares are not pages view stats. 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 in email and the Reader without ever clicking into your blog and creating a page view stat.
    Scroll down to view likes http://wordpress.com/#!/notifications/

    You can control the length of the entry sent out on your RSS feed here > Settings > Reading
    and choose the "summary" setting for your RSS feed or the "full text".

    That does not effect 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/

    Our stats are not real time stats. The data is cached and takes hours to update. See here for more on stats > http://en.support.wordpress.com/stats/

    Thanks!
    Yes, I know the hits and likes/shares are independent- but being a new blog- I doubt i'm on any readers yet. I figured if people were able to like my blog- they would have had to visit it first.
    Regardless, i'll read the stats page you've shared. Thanks again.
