    Hi there,
    I have a blog, so I know that I can’t use google analytics. Today, on my wordpress stats page, under the ‘clicks’ heading, I can see the the usual list of my files that people have clicked to download, plus a heading that says ‘google analytics’. Under this heading there are 5 clicks recorded, showing as links to google pages. When I try to follow the link to the pages I get a google page that says ‘error, page not found’.

    Hi there!

    There was a small bug that was creating those stats that we have now fixed. You can ignore those 5 clicks since they’ll remain in your stats.

    I hope that clarifies things!


    Mystery solved! Thank you!
