    When I am logged into my Android App and visit my site, my visits are not counted, when I am logged into Firefox on my Android Phone, my visits are not counted.

    Does anyone know if we are able to print our posts?

    OK, but if I’m logged into my blog on my WP mobile’s app, will it count me as a visitor or not, since I’m logged in with my admin password?

    Nope! If you’re logged in, the stats act in the same way as being logged in on your browser. You’re not counted in the stats provided your blog is not set to private.

    Does anyone know if we are able to print our posts?

    Yep! The best way to do this is to enable the “Print” icon on your sharing settings (Dashboard -> Settings -> Sharing). This will place an icon below each post that you can click to print the post.

    Is “Stats” means statistics or any other thing that I don’t know?

    I have some more “likes” for my posts. But I see lower visits and views on the same post. How this could be? Is there any rational explanation?

    Hi @D.Akkurt,

    Just a note, if you have any additional questions, please open a new forum thread. With regards to “stats”, that is short for statistics, meaning the likes, shares, and views of your blog.

    With regards to having more “Likes” but decreased views, a “Like” doesn’t guarantee someone viewed your blog. For example, readers can use the WordPress.com Reader to “like” a blog post, but never actually visit the post itself.

    If you’re referring to Facebook “likes”, readers on your Facebook may “like” your Facebook post, but never actually click the link to visit your blog. Therefore, they never actually register a page view on your blog, but the “like” is recorded on Facebook.

    Thanks for your answer. Now I understand the case. But I think the WordPress Reader visits could be counted as stat. :)

    Thanks,

    If your visitors click the title of the post to open your entire blog post (not just the preview) within the Reader, that is counted as a page view in your statistics. However, if the Reader just views the summary and clicks “Like”, that is not counted in your stats as a view since the Reader did not view the entire post.

    Hi, I dont’ understand what exactly stats say. E.g., right now 35 visitors, 89 views (so: 35 different people watched 2 or 3 different posts each one, right?), but 57 views for the last post today. So? 35 different people watched twice se same new post?
    Please explain me.
    Thanks in advance
