    Unexplained unusual increase in visitors for one day only. Not covered in stats page.

    The blog I need help with is



    Perhaps a visitor submitted a post to Reddit or stumbleupon or pinterest.



    Or perhaps not …

    Well, see here for what’s not recorded

    Be aware that likes and shares numbers are misleading when you are talking about page view stats. Your followers and anyone with a blog who is logged into can “like” and “share” your posts in several locations such as the Reader without ever clicking into your blog and creating a page view stat. Those who have username accounts only but no blog can become followers and click the “like” and/or “share” buttons. Those who do not have accounts cannot use the like button.

    Note: To compel readers to click into my blog to read the full post thereby creating a page view stat, I have set my RSS Feed for posts to “summary” on this page > Settings > Reading


    I guess this explains the anomaly of those rare unexplained spikes.
    Not a computer glitch or some kind of spam attack.
