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?
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.
