Accuracy of Stats Data

    First of all the blog I am seeking help with is

    I am wondering about the accuracy of the stats feature, if it is usually dead on with views or can miss recording views.

    Why I am asking is because today I have had other bloggers “Like” one of my posts. Then when I go to the stats page it says the post in question has not been viewed. I am not sure how it is possible to Like a post without viewing it.

    Is this just because the stats are never dead on or is this a problem within my blog?

    Cheers and thanks,

    Thomas Armstrong

    The blog I need help with is



    Likes and shares are misleading when you are talking about page view stats. Your followers and anyone with a blog who is logged into 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
    Doing that compels followers to click in and read the full post on my blogs.



    Timetheif, thank you for the timely response. I didn’t realize that about likes and followers.

    I just went into my Settings page and changed it to show Summary. Thanks for the advice.



    You’re welcome. :)
