    Why do my stats suddenly show only one visitor a day for every day?

    The blog I need help with is mcahalane2.wordpress.com.

    Mine too but I’m not sweating it as I expect that Staff are working on that function.

    Same here. I just noticed it today. Anyone have an idea how long it’s been an issue?

    Thanks, everyone. It seemed to correct itself last night, but then maybe not this morning. As long as it’s a known issue, then I’m fine.

    Was hoping I hadn’t broken WordPress! :)

    Me too…well my post I put up today apparently has had 1 visitor but 33 views on the same post…which I know is not true as several people are commenting on my facebook link to the post, having said they’ve read it…

    I’m using Firefox 18 and my stats are displaying http://wordpress.com/#!/my-stats/

    To be clear about this our stats are not real time stats. They do take time to update.

    I don’t believe the stats anyway!

    Was that meant to be helpful?

    Hi there, anyone else experiencing a decline in the number of views/visitors? I usually get a handful of hits every day, haven’t had a ‘hit-less’ day for months yet I’ve not had a single hit since Friday according to the stats – does that sound like anyone else or am I just unpopular? *sob*!!

    My stats seem to have corrected themselves since the initial problem was resolved. I haven’t had many hits this weekend either, maybe because of the 3 day weekend?

    Hi all,

    Thanks for the reports. Is anyone still having problems with their stats display?

    I’m not. As usual it took a little time for them to catch up and as usual I was too busy answering questions to be staring at my stats page.

    Mine seem to have corrected themselves within 24 hours. I was just concerned I’d missed something I was supposed to be looking for. New to this!

    Thanks, everyone.

    Hi, I am still having problems.
    Apart of that, I would like to know why stuff deleted my forum topic on this subject? The one deleted had started before this one.
    I would really like to know more on this.
    Thanks!

    Hi sanjanik,

    When I view your stats here:

    http://wordpress.com/#!/my-stats/?unit=1&blog=34497057

    everything appears normal to me. What problems are you having, exactly?

    Hi richardmtl,
    Thanks for your reply.
    It shows incorrect number of visitors, for example it shows visits from 2 different countries, but it says 1 visitor, 4 views.
    It looks that the views are ok, but the visitors are displayed wrong.

    Hi sanjik,

    Measuring stats for website visits will always be an innacurate affair, for various reasons. For a quick primer into why this is so, have a look at these articles:

    http://www.sitepoint.com/website-statistics-reports-wrong-1/
    http://www.sitepoint.com/website-statistics-reports-wrong-2/
    http://www.sitepoint.com/website-statistics-reports-wrong-3/

    To find out more about how our stats are measured and reported, see the following help page.

    If you have any further questions, please let me know!

    Thank you so much richardmtl for the links!
    As I can see, this is not unusual, this can happen and statistics can’t be 100% right.

    One more thing I would like to know is why my topic on this subject was deleted.
    The one that I had started already existed when this here appeared and mine was deleted in favor of this here.
    I would like to know more on this things as well, because if this happened just because somebody reported and that person was wrong which one to delete, then how to get protected from deleting our topics?
    I reacted on the topic not to be deleted but this was ignored.
