Stats going down as well as up

    A few hours ago, with my hit rate for today showing 80, I refreshed the page and saw it plummet to 55. Refreshed it again a couple of minutes ago and watched it drop to 85 from up in the 90s. As far as I can tell, I’m pretty sure the lost hits are staying lost (though it’s hard to be sure).

    Any idea what’s happening, folks? Thanks.

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

    Weirder – my stats have gone up, as I typed that post, to 117, so I’ve got at least some of them back (maybe). Still baffled though.

    Muahaha. I’m stealing hits.

    It appears this is a wordpress problem, I bet.
    Which browser are you all using?

    Hmm… Mine seem to be back to normal. A steady rise and no dips (though I suppose there may have been, I’ve only checked twice). Whatever’s going on I seem to have got back the hits I lost earlier and things are looking good.

    Can any staffers comment on this?

    It was probably just an overly aggressive cache, don’t worry we cherish every hit.

    Hi Matt,

    Just dropped another 30 though – from 156 to 126. I’n unsure how an overly aggressive cashe would reduce hits…

    Mr. Matt,

    Your response doesn’t sound as though you care very much, or that anyone is really looking into it. My stats just bumped down about 800 hits. Not funny….

    Hi Matt

    In case a bit more information helps: Our stats are going up and down all the time. It also seems to be affecting clicks and referrers. Getting this effect on different computers on different connections.

    I am glad i came across this as i came here to ask if there is a problem with stats..and it seems there is..i have had views today and the referrals and page views have been shown etc. then all the referrals and page views vanished and views today have gone to 0..but they are showing at sitemeter..so i’m guessing it’s not me that’s the problem??? which is unusual to say the least!! http://rainbowsoul.wordpress.com

    I think the Chief BBQ Taste Tester cares about our stats, but for as long as I’ve been here, I’ve observed this issue at least three times. It usually goes away, not a big deal.

    I’m having the same problem as well, stats seem to be jumping up and then down consistently through out the day.

    Hm. I haven’t or let’s say haven’t noticed it. Maybe it doesn’t effect on blogs with a low visitor amount?

    PS: Matt posting in a thread where I’ve posted?! *feints*

    It happens quite a lot, but not on this scale and not for so long.

    disembedded has a point, Matt. Is anyone looking at this? Does anyone care? We cherish every hit too, and we’d really like to know what’s going on or, at least, that someone is working on it.

    The next day.

    As far as I can tell, the problem has gone away. Whether any of us regained the lost hits, though, is questionable, and probably impossible to quantify. I have a feeling I’m still down on the day.
