I have a blog already and tonight I set up another.
With my existing blog when I view the page through dashboard it doesn’t show up as a view. But with my new blog it does. I know this as its set to private whilst I work on it and Ive visited it 5 times and there are five views, all from my locations.
There is no way to “stop this”.
