Quick stats question

    Had a look but couldn’t see any other threads about this.

    On my blog, generally my traffic about 50% from referrals, 10/20% from Google searches, and the rest is unaccounted for in the WordPress stats. Just wondering where these views come from? Are they direct hits, i.e. people typing in the URL, or from bookmarks? Does this include RSS traffic?

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



    Oh, I know! People just type in random URL’s all the time like I do. Or just people who already know your site, that’s all!



    From http://en.support.wordpress.com/stats/#additional-info :

    Why doesn’t the number of referrers add up to the number of total views?
    Not all visitors will land on your blog by clicking a link somewhere else. Visitors may type your URL directly into the web browser, click a link in an email, or click a link in another application which then loads the browser. Visitors that come from search engines will also not be counted as referrers because they’ll be listed in the search engine terms.


    Thanks guys!
