Likes, but no views?!

    I get almost 5 likes on my posts each day, but I rarely get any views! The people who are looking at my blog are not counting as views. How can this be?? Is there any way I can change it so I can see the people who like my blog as views?

    Thanks,
    Marcella

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

    Likes are not page views. In fact, likes and shares are misleading when you are talking about page view stats. Your followers and anyone with a WordPress.com blog who is logged into WordPress.com can “like” and “share” your posts in several locations such as the Reader without ever clicking into your blog and creating a page view stat. See here for what I do to compel readers to read posts on my site > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2012/07/09/wordpress-followers-likes-and-stats

    Thanks, Timethief! That helped me very much. I was wondering, do you work for WordPress? You help other people so much!

    And also, can people follow my blog without counting it as a view, too?

    I’m a Volunteer and I’m blushing re: thedribblingpensioner’s answer.

    Yes. There are several different ways that readers can become followers. See: http://en.support.wordpress.com/following/
