Actually, it’s possible that they re-jiggered the stats to move the google reader people over to Feed from Blog Stats. I have had several hits listed on Blog Stats that came from Google reader. That might account for it.
But you should still totally vote for me.
Raincoaster: How—where—does one vote?
And, will someone please answer my simple question? Are the feed-readers counted as part of the total page views?
Feed readers are a separate stat.
They shouldn’t be the same; we were told they were broken out and had their own page. If the individuals follow the reader back to your site itself, that counts as a regular blog hit AND a feed hit, but normally they’re two separate things. But I’ve definitely seen Google Reader hits on the regular stat page in the past. None there at the moment.
And you vote here. Only a few hours left. You must nominate a minimum of three blogs, so there’s your own (you’re encouraged to self-nominate) and mine and then pick a wild card.
Vivian and Raincoaster: Thanks for your answers, conflicting though they be :)
Thanks too for the voting site. I’ll go over and vote…
Sorry Vivian and Raincoaster about my last post. I took a quick glance, had to leave the house, and misunderstood. I believe you are saying the same thing. Forgiveness, please. :(
Not at all; the ambiguity was mine, because Vivian and I were posting at the same time and I was replying to you, which made it seem like I was negating what she said. I went back and edited it. So you’re not misunderstanding things, you’re just not a time traveller.
My feed stats have bounced from an occasional one or two to 25 for each of the past two days so I guess that is a minor glitch. I also wish I could see a difference of 1,000 hits in a day without being totally wiped out. Anyone voting for best Australian Blog who includes poor lil me will also be getting a nutrigrain bar. (it is the one I got from raincoaster – it has been cloned.)
Oh dear. That could get weird.
I see from my stats for yesterday that google feed reader stats are still being counted as regular blog hits, so my previous theory must be wrong and we must all be supercelebs of the blogosphere.
My blog stats look like a hike up the Himalayas. Suddenly the feed stats increased too.
Andy has asked to send submit feedback if we see a major problem! What would constitute a ‘major’ problem? My hits have gone up 50% and feed stats have taken a huge hike too.
If it’s real then there is no problem so I suppose we’re all finger crossing rather than reporting. ;)
Did your read my first entry?
I asked andy: Could you expand please on how one differentiates between “minor” and “major” problems when it comes to stats?
Obviously he doesn’t visit the forum often so I suppose we’ll have to send in feedbacks tomorrow if we’re still concerned.
I gave the best answer I could, Timethief!
Meanwhile, I’m wondering if thereare spambots using feed reader checking to see if our blogs have been updated recently; I updated, went on a 3/4 hour hike, then had seven new pages of spam when I got back. I think my updating triggered the new spam, but it’s just a theory at the moment.
My blog stats at the moment are in the pooper, although I’ve only updated twice today, which is low for me. My feed stats are about normal, down from an all-time high yesterday of five times normal.
Ladies and gentlemen, we DO have a major stat problem. Mine have not budged an inch, not by one unit, in an hour. Feedback sent.
Blog about Miss Nevada or Britney Spears. They’ll be up. lol
I did. They have stayed flat for over an hour and a half at this point. And she was even dancing!!!!
You guys are so hooked on stats… I can’t wait until April! Something very big is happening to your stats in April.
Anyway, the data migration went pretty well. Somebody somewhere (not us, not here) made a change that caused all of your stats to be lost for a few hours. Unfortunately the data never reached us, so we can’t recover it for you. I’ll make some fuzzy adjustments tomorrow which should pad your graphs for the lost hours but it just won’t be the same, will it? :-)
Feed stats were being counted wrong due to the same otherwhere otherbodies, so you should be happy to learn that the numbers are more accurate now. Again, sorry about the past. Let’s put it behind us, shall we?
Just hold tight until April.
Okay, this is a good time to clarify the major/minor thing. If it’s major, I will fix it. If it’s minor, I might fix it.
(Please laugh now.)
It’s late and I’m off.
Something very big is happening to your stats in April.
