    wordpress.com stats reports nearly 50 visits for 2/10/09. (i’m logged in).

    sitemeter.com stats reports 5 visits, and about 20 page views for the same date. (set to ignore my own visits).

    why the discrepancy?

    i believe the sitemeter is more correct.

    is wp.com stats unique visitors, or page views?

    The blog I need help with is laptopacademy.net.

    The blog you specified at laptopacademy.net does not appear to be hosted at WordPress.com.

    This support forum is for WordPress.com hosted blogs only. If you have a self-hosted WordPress blog you need to seek help at the WordPress.org forums, not here.

    If you don’t understand the difference, you may find this information helpful.

    i have blogs posted on wordpress.com, so my question regarding them is:

    is wp.com stats unique visitors, or total page views?

    Page views, not unique.

    You might also see a discrepancy because of dates — our stats are always in GMT, so the dates might not align with Sitemeter.
