How does someone like my post if theyhave not viewed my post

    Sometimes my account shows a person liking a post, but that post has not been viewed that day. How does that work? Are the stats only relevant to viewers who also have a wordpress account?

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

    All visits to your site, from visitors with or without a WordPress.com account, should be counted. Could you make sure that your blog is set to the correct timezone in your Settings -> General?

    That works from http://wordpress.com/#/read/
    If a user is subscribed to your blog, he/she may like or reblog your post from his/her reading list and that too without viewing your post. :)

    The time zone setting is definitely correct.

    This happened with a new post I published the other day. So it was the first day of the post, and someone “Liked” the post. But it did not show on the “Top Posts & Pages” for the day. I understand it may not show in the referrer list, but I would expect it to show in the Top Posts & Pages if viewed.

    Did you read my response above? Assume I am subscribed to your blog. And, when you published your post, I was reading my subscriptions : your post will appear in my reading list. Now, there are two ways to like a post:
    1) To visit your blog—read the whole post and click on the like.
    2) To click on ‘Like’ tab in my reading list above your post.

    It used to be called tag surfer:

    Folks don’t have to go to your blog (and thus be counted) to read (a summary of) your post, but there is an opportunity to “like” your post…
