I am wondering as today my stats for my new blog show 2 hits or views of my latest blog post "Reflections on God and the Tasks of Humans" does that mean only 2 people have clicked on the title link on the home page of my blog, to show the whole post (which is a very long one)?
If a person goes to the "Explore Topics" on WP dot com, and finds my post that way and clicks on continue reading or the title, then does that count as a hit or view.
I sometimes see as a Referrer "wordpress.com" so would that be someone visiting from exploring topics, or visiting only via a direct link to my home page or any page/post that I link to, from these Forums (aka WP dot com)?
The reason for these questions is that while there are alot of likes on several of my blog posts on my 2 Blogs, I see from the stats not the same number of clicks on the corresponding post title, so I think readers must see a photo and/or some snippet from the post that they really like, and use the Like function, but not read the entire post.
Has anyone else had the same happen? I would like readers to read the whole posts, of course, but if they don’t, I can’t help that.
Can any great person (like Time Thief, Happiness Engineer or Sacred Path) answer my many questions?
Thank you for your help. Celine
The blog I need help with is starstruckworld.wordpress.com.
