    Hello. I have received emails about annual reports for a few of my WP sites, but a couple of crucial ones are missing. Would it be possible for someone to generate 2014 reports for the following two:

    http://bassic-sax.info/version5/
    http://bassic-sax.info/personal_blog/

    The Jetpack plugin is turned on and functioning as it should be for both sites.

    Thanks very much…helen

    The blog I need help with is bassic-sax.info.

    Similar here – I’ve received and email for and checked the report for one of my blogs.

    However, I haven’t had an email for the other one. There’s a banner on my stats page of this other blog with a link to the report, but that link goes to a 404 error page.

    The blog in question is:

    https://trickygirl.wordpress.com

    Thanks!

    Hi trickygirl and bassicsax,

    You should both be receiving e-mails with the requested annual reports.

    If for some reason you don’t get them, please let me know and I’ll investigate further.

    Would you like me to stop directing blogger to https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/annual-report-11?replies=54 and simply leave all these threads open?

    This one was a special case and I was already here. Generally speaking, directing them to the main thread is a good call.

    Thanks for checking!

    @bassicsax

    I asked one of my colleagues about this and I’m afraid we aren’t able to generate reports for sites unless a post has been added to them in the report’s calendar year.

    Since neither of the sites you asked about had new posts in 2014, we can’t create reports for them.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

    @lizthefair.

    Sorry to taking so long for the reply. New Years took its toll in this musician. ;)

    In any event, thank you for checking into the issue for me. I appreciate it. Now I know that the reports are based on posts, not pages. (I have published quite a few pages over the page 12 months on my site.)

    Since I use WP as a CMS–as thousands of others around the world do–I just assumed that stat reports would also calculate visits to pages, not just posts.

    Just a suggestion: perhaps future reports can take page visits and publications into account.

    Thanks again for your assistance. Best wishes for 2015. Cheers…helen

    Pages are for content that rarely changes. They are not as attractive to search engines as Posts are so you may want to reconsider your blog structure. http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/

    A blog is a post based website designed for interactive communication. As the posts are frequently updated and appear on the front page of the site it’s very attractive to search engines.

    What most people call a website is merely a page based site that functions as a one way noticeboard. As the structure is page based and as pages are for static content that rarely changes, and as pages do not have RSS feeds it is not as attractive to search engines as a post based blog structured site is.

    Characteristics of Pages
    Static Pages sit outside the blog structure. Static pages cannot have Categories and Tags assigned to them. Pages do not appear in RSS feeds. Most Pages do not have date stamps in their URLs. Other bloggers rarely backlink to static Pages in their published posts. Page structured blogs have a very difficult time:

    • securing traffic;
    • securing comments;
    • securing backlinks;
    • achieving authority in the niche;
    • achieving Google PageRank.

    I realize that you are trying to be helpful, but I already know all this. If you would have taken a look at my website, you would have realized that I have both a blog, as well as a website, and even a gallery driven by 4images. They are all found together under my domain: http:bassic-sax.info

    WP has been promoting itself as a CMS, and has successfully become, IIRC, the most popular CMS for generating websites.

    BTB, search engines find me just fine. I’m on page 1 (if not#1) on Google for most things that I write about on my website. My site traffic is reflective of this. Though true, my website does get slightly less traffic than my blog does. In my experience, that’s why the two together (blog within a website) provides you with the best search engine exposure.

    Thanks for your feedback. As your site has a pagerank of only 2/10 I thought I could be helpful. I humbly apologize for taking the risk of trying to help you improve.

    My stats speak for themselves–as does my inability to keep up with email requests, and comment replies.

    I guess I should have looked at your screen name more closely. I’m done having you steal my time.

    Good-bye…hk
