Stats aren’t adding up

    My wordpress stats don’t seem to matching the numbers from one of the blogging communities I’m a member of. Spfldbloggers keeps track of how many clicks each post gets and it has way higher numbers than my WP stats (21 to 6). Is it common for the WP stats to be a little low?

    Thanks!

    Each service has their own algorithms, and ways of counting hits and therefore will show different numbers. I at one time had statcounter, sitemeter, and activemeter on my blog, and all three gave different numbers and none agreed with wordpress, and there was no rhyme nor reason as to which would show higher numbers when.

    WordPress counts page views (each page or post view is a hit). What the other services count as hits I have no clue, nor does anyone else.

    This gives more information about the wordpress.com blog stats: http://faq.wordpress.com/2006/02/09/questions-about-stats/ .

    Yesterday my stats showed 4,066 hits, Today it shows 3874. Why the decrease?

    My stats went DOWN overnight as well by bout 30. Is WP having a audit?

    Agreed. I check my stats regularly, and my total went down by almost 300. Somewhere, the stat data is being confused. If i add up my monthly stats, i get a much higher number than is currently being reported.

    Different algorithms is fine, but i’d like one that is consistenct and relevant; random interpretations of statistics do not interest me. I want concrete numbers based on a standardized version of a click or a hit.

    More consistent than my ability to type, preferably. heh.

    I have just sat and watched my stats suddenly decrease from 1,270 to 1,090

    The Daily Visits adds up to, correctly, and displays on the upper part of the dashboard as 1,270

    The hits at the lower part of the dashboard displays as 1,090

    I’m having this problem also! My stats went from 343 to 147. Not that it is of extreme importance, but I do like to know that I’m constantly getting more and more views :/ Has anyone found a way to fix this yet?

    This isn’t us-fixable i don’t think. This is them-fixable.

    The stats seem to be changed by an amounnt of roughly 5-17% with some instances as high as 68%.

    Check my other site and the same scenario — the (correct) total is displayed in the Blog Stats Table

    BUT

    in the Total Views …. it has suddenly reduced, and therefore, does not agree with the actual total of visits.

    Me too. Last night we were crossed over 270,000 but this morning dropped below it and now we’ve been stuck at 269,946 most of the morning. Hits are happening and showing up accurately on the dashboard’s daily stats in real time, but not being added to the blog’s front page widget total.

    See the yellow announcement at the top of the main forum page about the stats issue.

    I’m having the same problem with my stats. They went from 11.560 to 11.219. I hope we are getting our lost hits back, aren’t we?

    Looks like it is all back to normal.
