Custom domain – share/view counts.
If I add a custom domain I know I will lose the share counts to Twitter, LinkedIn, Will I also lose the stats on the number of views, that I can use to book advertisers?
The blog I need help with is marlagottschalk.wordpress.com.
This is not a frivolous question. Are you concerned about numbers or reality? I consider the number duplicated from the social networks (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn) when one uses Publicize to autopost to be deceptive and I don’t use Publicize. When those numbers are shared with advertizes as if they constitute reality I gag.
Will I also lose the stats on the number of views?
Your page views recorded on your stats page reflect reality. http://wordpress.com/#!/my-stats/ The rest is for lack of a better word are fakes.
No, you will not lose those stats, but no, you cannnot book advertisers. Blogger-initiated ads are banned here and will get your blog suspended.
that I can use to book advertisers?
You might also review the TOS before you get too far along:
Thanks for the catch. :)
I though there were possibilities here: http://wordads.co/
This is through – WordPress – not from outside sources.
Has this option been discontinued.
I already understood that outside ads were not allowed.
“Booked” may have been the wrong choice of words. Thanks for the info.
WordAds are still working – but you need to apply and be accepted for them to run on your blog
I see. I will explore that.
