Hits from one IP not recognized

    Statcounter shows me that a user in Germany read through the 66 posts that make up my online serial today, but WordPress stats don’t reflect that at all. Is there any way to fix this?

    The blog I need help with is lithicbee.wordpress.com.


    There isn’t any way to somehow add views to your site. It is possible that those views weren’t counted on wordpress stats, because it was some sort of bot, so not a legitimate visitor, or for some other reason. Each page statistic service is going to show different values, since they count views slightly differently. There’s not much you can do about it really.




    Thanks, danielisreading. I know the hit counts usually vary a little between statcounter and wordpress, but this was a case of one IP address visiting each of my story posts, in order, over an entire day, and skipping my other posts. The behavior does not strike me as that of a bot, but anything is possible. I know it’s not important in the grand scheme, but I wanted to make WordPress aware of it.



    Note that the following are not reflected in your stats:

    * Visits to uploaded documents and files
    * Visits from browsers that do not execute javascript or load images
    * GoogleBot and other search engine spiders
    * Your own visits to your blog (for logged-in users of public blogs only)

    It’s possible that it’s been a search engine spider.

    Otherwise feel free to send us a screenshot of the page (statscounter) where you’re seeing this issue. You can upload the screenshot to your blog’s media library.

    Please let us know if you need any further assistance!



    Thank you, kardotim. I uploaded 4 screenshots (statcounter1, 2, 3, 4) to the media library.



    I can’t say for sure who’s IP address that was. It’s high likely that one of the previous mentioned things apply in this situation and that they therefore not reflect in your stats.

    Feel free to contact us if something similar happens again.
