what posts were viewed and counted as “homepage”

    In one of my blogs, I have 174 posts. I have had 4807 view. 1870 of those views are listed as home page. So, I have no idea about which posts they refer to.
    I want to see what those 1870 “home page” views represent. how do I do that? Can I make a change in my blog? If so, how. Do I need some third party application? If so, which one(s) work?

    This listing of views as “home page” really serves no purpose that I can see.

    Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is richardmitnick.wordpress.com.

    Homepage is the main landing page of your site, this page: http://richardmitnick.wordpress.com/ . Since it has a number of posts on that page, it isn’t possible to know which posts people read and which they do not.

    I’m fairly sure it also counts as a home page view if they skip backwards to view multiple previous posts, rather than counting these individually. If you want people to read your posts on the single page where you can keep track of what is popular then maybe try using the more tag to hide content on the home page view.

    as in an archive or category pages view?
    I hadn’t even considered that!

    I meant if you use the previous/next links on just the main blog front page of most sites here. I’m not sure about archive and category pages although it wouldn’t be too hard to check.
