    And how can we possibly help a blogger who does not provide both usernames and the URL of the blog in question?

    #1282867

    usernames clivelombari and arcangelolombari it is not a particular blog , I am getting no stats at all for today. I normally get 1600 a week and have had 35,000 in my first year.I was getting 200 -650 hits a day until I changed my username

    Bit of an aggressive response wasn’t it .Not called for in my opinion. My current username is by my question anyway. Thanks for replying anyway not many people respond out of 35,000 hits I only got 80 responses.

    clivelombari.wordpress.com is no longer available.
    The authors have deleted this site.

    Hence there can be no stats for that blog in question here.

    http://arcangelolombari.wordpress.com/ is an active blog so it must be the blog you are reporting with regards to stats.

    Re: stats, likes and shares
    Our stats are not real time stats. The data is cached and takes hours to update. See here for more on stats > http://en.support.wordpress.com/stats/

    The WordPress.com like button, like every other in-house use only like button (example: Facebook) can only be used by those who have registered WordPress.com username accounts when they are logged in to WordPress.com. http://en.support.wordpress.com/likes/

    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.

    I’ll tag this thread for a Staff follow-up assistance. Please subscribe to the thread so you are notified when they respond and please be patient while waiting.

    To link your username to your primary blog so your username can be clicked and the blog can instantly be accessed > Dashboard -> Users -> Personal Settings -> then scroll down to Account Details. Then scroll down to where it says ‘Primary Blog‘ select the URL for your primary wordpress.com blog and then “save changes”.

    thanks very much

    Following your above instructions. There is no Primary blogg in account details but http://arcangelolombari.wordpress.com is in website.
    There is a primary blogg in Personal Options but it won’t let me change it.
    thanks clive

    Hi arcangelolombari,

    The stats for http://arcangelolombari.wordpress.com/ are showing up, and I see that blog listed as your primary blog for the user account arcangelolombari here: http://wordpress.com/settings/account/

    Sometimes after changing a username it can help to log completely out of WordPress.com, clear your browser cache (or quit your browser) and then try logging back in.

    Please let me know if you are still having difficulties, and exactly where you are experiencing the problem.

    i am still having difficulties according to my stats i got 2 hits yesterday and 2 today none from the uk. I normally get hundreds every day till I changed my username to arcangeolombari from clivelombari then nothing apart from forum comments. Jackie how many hits can u see for yesterday and today pls?

    #1282989

    should my old username http:\\clivelombari.wordpress.com be my primary bogg or my new username http:\\arcangelolombari.wordpress.com be my primary blogg
    or should clivelombari be linked to arcangelolombari ?

    Hi there,

    The username clivelombari is no longer active (since you did the username change). The blog at clivelombari.wordpress.com is likewise deactivated in light of the change. However, the actual blog title (what is displayed at arcangelolombari.wordpress.com) is still clivelombari and will be unless and until you change it in your Dashboard under Settings > General.

    The stats have dropped off because you changed your blog’s address, and people haven’t yet found it. Once you post on the blog with the new URL, people who follow your blog will be prompted to go to the new address, and it will be picked up in the WordPress.com Reader. It will also be reindexed by Google.

    If you’re concerned about losing traffic, you can purchase the Site Redirect upgrade to redirect your visitors who go to clivelombari.wordpress.com to arcangelolombari.wordpress.com: http://en.support.wordpress.com/site-redirect/

    If you change a blog URL and fail to purchase a site redirect upgrade every bit of authority that belonged to the original URL and the page rank it has earned is gone. Worse still, every original link to the content will be broken in the search engine page results and everywhere the the links appear on the internet. Everyone who clicks the original links will experience a 404 (page not found).

    If you do change your blog address, permalinks to your old address, including search engine results, will be broken unless you purchase a Site Redirect upgrade. http://en.support.wordpress.com/changing-blog-address/

    Hi arcangelolombari,

    All is not lost. You can purchase the Site Redirect upgrade in your Dashboard under Store > Store.

    More instructions can be found here:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/site-redirect/

    It costs $13 USD per year.

    Once you get it up and running, things should start working properly again for you.

    I have had my blog for a week and already have 12 followers and 10 likes, so I know people are reading my blog but my stats still say 0. I’m confused.

    Our stats are not real time stats. The data is cached and takes hours to update. See here for more on stats > http://en.support.wordpress.com/stats/

    Note that email subscribers and followers don’t have to click into the blog to read you posts if you provide a full post rather than setting your RSS feed here > Settings > Reading to “summary”.

    Also note that 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.

    @teannadorsey, people can follow your blog, and like it, from the WordPress.com Reader. That does not add to your stats as they haven’t necessarily gone to your blog to read your post.

    @jackiedana, thanks that’s probably it.
