The blog I need help with is aboywithshoes.wordpress.com. December 20, 2011 at 5:56 pm #781349 timethiefMember You can’t. I don’t post the numbers on my blog because I don’t consider it to be anyone’s business but mine. I don’t want my high numbers to discourage others from subscribing to my blogs which are long standing blogs and not new ones. If you wish to check out the number of backlinks and the traffic follow a competing blog has use quantcast and alexa for metrics. Assuming the competing blog has been around for awhile you will see metircs that may satisfy your curiosity. These metrics are all public unless the blogger suppresses their display. Example 1 using your own blog: http://www.quantcast.com/aboywithshoes.wordpress.com Example 2 using your own blog http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/aboywithshoes.wordpress.com# December 20, 2011 at 5:57 pm #781350 timethiefMember edit: “traffic follow” was meant to be “traffic flow” December 28, 2011 at 12:05 am #781512 wabbitoidMember I have a question about Quantcast stats: Mine are running about 1/2 what wordpress shows for total pageviews. Is there some reason for this? Any ideas why Quantcast wouldn’t count a pageview? Also, I am curious as to how to turn it off – not that I want to, but it may be interesting in the future. Thanks in advance. Author Posts The topic ‘Finding out how many blog followers’ is closed to new replies.
