    I am getting a spike in hits on my website and the majority are coming from wordpress.com…not a specific site on wordpress, but it just lists wordpress.com as the referrer? Is this spam or something else? When I click on the link, it just sends me to the main wordpress.com page.

    The blog I need help with is kathynida.com.

    Hey guys — founder of WordPress.com here.

    Good news: We’ve historically been vastly undercounting your stats, and we’re starting to fix this.

    Bad news: There are some bugs with how things add up, meaning that they don’t. I apologize for undue excitement this may have caused.

    More good news: Although support is closed, we’re working on this. We’ll fix it ASAP.

    Thank you Matt. I am having the same experience as vrgnamgnta. I have noticed this in the past several days. Any projected time for the fix? Thank you also Timethief. Have a pleasant and rewarding evening. Craig
