    I have been averaging almost 100 views a day. I have 107 followers. Yesterday, the number of views drastically dipped under 50. Today it shows I have had only 12 views. I haven’t made any particular changes to my blog. I think something has happened to block visitors and views for some reason.

    I equate it to the paperboy not delivering the news. Something’s not right in Denmark, that’s for sure. Or in any other of the nations that have been visiting my blog. For heaven’s sake… I was even reaching Albania three days ago.

    I see it now. My mistake. Yes, it should be –

    Yeah, there is definitely something wrong. I’m still showing only 14 views and the day is almost over. I have 107 followers. I had 127 views Monday. Tuesday it dropped to 37, then nearly fell off the charts today.

    Has WordPress sold out to the Chinese?

    My visits started dropping Saturday, like somebody flicked a switch. My YouTube hits have come to complete standstill. What’s up?

    Hi there,

    The entire Reader is still seeing some minor tweaks and updates. This could affect what you see for stats temporarily.

    Indytony,

    You marked your blog mature 43 days ago, which would affect view from the Reader, but since that’s not a new action, it is unlikely that this caused a dip for you beginning a few days ago.

    I would recommend watching your stats through the weekend and reporting back on how they are behaving, since there may continue to be some small edits.

    I am sorry for the inconvenience!

    I’ve also noticed that the number of views has fallen on my blog – http://mraybould.wordpress.com/ – over the past three days. I blog every day and the number has never dropped so low before. Have there been any changes in the way these stats are calculated?

    Hello:
    We’ve been blogging since last April, and have just noticed a definite lag in hits over the past week. Hasn’t stopped entirely, but it’s the first drastic drop we’ve seen in 10 months, and we blog once a day without fail.

    Any help you can give us would be appreciated.
    Our blog is ‘Two Heads: http://thabto.wordpress.com/

    ***Oh, and BTW,
    Timethief, if you pick this up 1st:
    Love the new hair! Very becoming…

    Site Stats fluctuate all the time. There’s no specific reason for it, but things like: having a mature flagged blog, using too many tags, or Google’s new user interface when searching images could be responsible for the drop or rise of stats.
