Counting my own hits?
I log in to my wordpress blog automatically when I open it. If I keep refresh the blog (to check for more views), will my refreshing add on to my hits?
The blog I need help with is internationalcricketblog.wordpress.com.
If your blog is public and you are logged in your page views should not be counted. If you are on the Dashboard you should not be counted.
If your blog is private then your page views will be counted when you are logged in (you need to be logged in to visit your site) – that was changed recently to show traffic to private blogs to reflect what actually occurred.
My blog is public (I think, it comes up on search engines and all content is visible). However:
Today I’ve had 25 views, 10 referrers (including two from wordpress dashboard) and 0 search engine terms. How?
See here please > stats
The following are not counted:
- Visits to uploaded documents and files
- GoogleBot and other search engine spiders
- Your own visits to your blog (for logged-in users of public blogs only)
Some search engines don’t reveal search terms for privacy reasons. That’s why we don’t always know which search terms were used by visitors who arrived at your site from a search engine. When we don’t know the search terms, we show them as “Unknown search terms”.
The dashboard visits could be us Volunteers clicking in when you ask questions so we can figure out how to help you.
So, one could artificially drive up the hit count on a blog by, every evening, say, temporarily setting it to Private, visiting it multiple times (good grief), and then setting it back to Private? I mean, get a life and all that, but would this be possible? And– I don’t want my visits to count–when I switch a blog from Private to Public, is the hit counter reset to 0? Then, all would be dandy.

Technically one could do that but presumably we all want accurate stats so why would we do that.

I’m sorry but that’s not possible.
