    Some of my posts are getting more “Likes” than “Visits”.
    How is that possible?

    P.

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

    The “likes” issue is misleading you. Followers can read your posts in many places and even click “like” buttons in the Reader or on the Topics pages, or in email subscriptiions of your posts, without ever entering the blog and creating a page view stat. (Those who have username accounts only but no blog can become followers and click the “like” button.)

    Thank you for your reply.

    Ok. I undestand.
    But it doesn’t sound logical to me. “Visits” should represent “visits”, no matter where or how the post has been visited. Otherwise, the whole concept of knowing who (from which country) is reading and liking which post, via what link, etc is based on partial data.
    Right now, I know who “likes” my posts, but some of these people are not included the stats provided by WordPress… ;(

    Ok.
    Another weird thing:
    I have 7 Views today, but Views by Country says “No views today”.
    I grabbed a screen capture that I’ll be happy to email if requested.
