    The general help link for the stat counter says that it does not count my own visits to my blog.

    Is that correct.

    I am just creating my blog and have not even invited anyone or publicized it at all. Yet the stat counter has logged 100’s of visits.

    I assume that has to be me checking and re-checking. (and checking and rechecking some more)

    How can I correct the stat counter so it does not count my visits?

    Once I do start promoting my blog, I would like to know the count is a little more accurate.

    Thank you for your suggestions

    The blog I need help with is turnkei.net.

    If your blog visibility is set to public and you are logged in your visits are not being recorded. See here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/stats/

    hmm… ok, so I betcha what happens is everytime I log into wordpress, I do it thru the meta link on my blog.

    I bet those are counting as visits also.

    Thanks for the help
