    The blog I need help with is



    Hi there,
    Don’t be sad. Likes may make you feel warm and fuzzy as do shares but the aren’t page view stats. They are misleading when you are talking about page view stats. Your followers and anyone with a account who is logged in can “like” and “share” your posts in several locations such as in email and the Reader without ever clicking into your blog and creating a page view stat. It’s only when a visitor clicks into the site that a page view stat is created.

    You can control the length of the entry sent out on your RSS feed here > Settings > Reading by choosing the “summary” setting for your RSS feed and that will compel people to click into to read the full post thereby creating a page view stat.

    On that same page you can disable shares appearing in the RSS feed which is where the data for email subscribers comes from:
    Add to each article in your feed:
    _Comment count

    Changes may not appear until you create a new post or your news reader refreshes

    That does not affect the length of the post displayed on the front page or main page for posts on the blog. To create excerpts there we can split content by inserting “the more tag”



    Many thanks for replying to my message it’s helpful
