    How does WordPress know which posts are being read by visitors to include them in the stats? Doesn’t the entire page open up to a reader giving him the option of reading everything without clicking on a specific post? Just curious as to how this stat is determined by WordPress.

    Thank you!

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

    Individual pageviews and postviews are counted and included in top posts and pages. Views of the home page (with multiple posts) or category or tag pages (also with multiple posts) are counted in the total views, but not as individual pages/posts.

    Thank you for your quick reply.

    Is there something I can do to turn page visits into individual POST visits so I have a better idea of what they are reading?

    There’s no way to tell what your visitors are reading on the multi-post pages, except with the ‘more’ tag. That way the reader must actively click a link to read the full post.

    That will significantly reduce the number of people who read your posts, even though it will report those who DO more accurately. You may want to set your blog to display only one post at a time.
