Why do my views not match my likes/ new followers? How can I change this?

    Why have I got way more likes and new followers than the number of visitors to my page? Is there a way I can change this? Cheers

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


    Likes and shares are misleading when you are talking about page view stats. Your followers and anyone with a WordPress.com blog who is logged into WordPress.com can “like” and “share” your posts in several locations such as in email and the Reader without ever clicking into your blog and creating a page view stat.

    Consider this please: If you provide full posts in your feed then what incentive is there for any readers to click into the blog and create a page view stats?

    Aha good site. Thanks a lot for your help!



    You’re welcome.


    Hey again…I followed your advice and put my feed option to only show a summary, but I am still getting very few site views compared to my likes. Is there anything else I can do? How are these people reading my post and liking it if they’re not going to my site?
    By the way, just for some perspective – I can get 5/6 likes on a post but not a single view sometimes.
    Thanks a lot
