I’ve noticed that my follower count does not reflect the change in number of followers sometimes even after 48 h.
I know there are at least two ways for a fellow WordPress blogger to follow my site: either by clicking on the ‘follow’ button on the top black bar when logged in (which means my blog will show up in their Reader), or by clicking the ‘follow’ button on the webpage itself (which means they’ll received emails as well). My follower count updates instantaneously in the latter case, and does not update for many days in the former. At some point the counter does decided to update and then there’s a ‘jump’ in the number followers, as though a bunch of people signed up at once.
I’ve tried clearing my browser cache – no change. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem?
