stats not working

    since i started using my blog, the stats appear not to be working: I get a message saying “no stats are available for this time period”

    do I need to activate the function? and if so, how?

    I have been looking both here and in the support section for help but haven’t been able to find any related topic

    The blog I need help with is



    Well – for starters the blog linked to your name is marked Private – so you will get no visitors other than those you specifically invite. So unless you have a very active group of friends I would not expect to see much traffic. I have not used a Private blog but I would think that Stats would show friends that actually log in.

    The Stats package is automatic at WordPress.COM



    the blog has 20 or so active contributors (students in a class I am teaching) and I’m pretty sure it receives a certain amount of traffic as most posts have comments (one of the assignments is to comment on specific posts on a weekly basis)



    Maybe your students are counted as “registered users” The only other idea would be to ask Support:

    The following are not counted:

    * Visits from registered users of the blog when they are logged in.
    * Visits to uploaded documents and files
    * Visits from browsers that do not execute javascript or load images.
    * GoogleBot and other search engine spiders.



    I guess they are”registered users”! hadn’t thought of that…

    I wonder if there is any way that I can make the stats function count them, then? it’d be really handy…



    You could try using an external stat counter like Sitemeter or Statcounter; use the HTML versions, in a text widget.
