WordPress view stats all over the place

85 Comments

I just checked my number of views for the day – 72.
A few seconds later it was 66.
I wondered if I was seeing things so I refreshed the page. 73.
Now it’s back down to 66.

Am I the only one this is happening to?

  4. Tiz another WordPress mystery. Sometimes, the top of my reader list shows posts from weeks ago, with all the new ones having disappeared. Then the following day, they are back, only to hide once again the next.

  5. I gave up on that long ago. Just write and don’t worry, lol.

  7. Up and down like a lady of negotiable affection’s underwear, Linda, that’s my stats. Yesterday, suddenly plunged down five for no reason I could tell.

  8. It happened to me the other day, it goes down then after an hour it goes up again. Weird!

  11. Sometimes it says completely zero, after saying 17 or something,
    I think it just messes up…. 😦

  12. I only got ONE view today!
    Haha!
    I guess I won’t complain.
    I’d hate to lose it…… πŸ˜‰

  13. Good to know I am new so it was confusing the heck out of me.

  14. The more tweaking WordPress does to “improve”, messes up the basics…so irritating. I feel your frustration!

  15. My best day figures changed as well. I get comments from people who don’t show up on the stats and the views don’t match the visitors. I think there must be a back door that they’re coming in by!

  16. Mine have been messed up for days. I usually wind up with more countries than visitors.

  17. Happens to me sometimes, especially if I switch from my phone to Ipad or PC.

  18. Can’t say – still crying over the fact I have to click 3 or more times to get to my beloved/well-understood Dashboard instead of taking advantage of the “New Enhanced Posting Experience” – I’m an old dog who hates learning new tricks unless it saves me a ton of time and makes me feel comfortable….LOL

  19. That never happened to me. Very strange.

  20. My numbers are constantly changing even though I am not as huge as you are. I do know that by a certain time in the afternoon all of a sudden if I post anything it shows the next day and it refreshes the count to zero lol…

  21. My stats look about right today. But they have been weird in the past. My top day changed once…to a day further back in the past. And then there are days when I have only one view but from 20 different countries. But today, things look just about normal.

  22. That’s a lot of views for me. I get about that many in a week.

  23. I gave up trying to understand the WP stats a long time ago. There must be way more people reading that WP says there is, because I get comments from people on days WP says absolutely no one has viewed a post. Then one day it will say I have X number of followers, then X number less 1, followed by X number +3. I give up.

  24. I think there is something wrong with the Reader too. Usually I see many more posts during the day. I guess it could be because of the Holiday here in the States but…… I dunno. It just feels off to me.

  25. I checked mine, and they seem right. I haven’t posted in over a week, so 18 for today and 34 for yesterday seems legit. But I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, Stats LIE. πŸ˜‰

  27. I have it happen sometimes. What was really devastating is I had a top day of 101 views. A month later it told me my top was 77. Curses! But I eventually accidentally beat the pants off that with a really weird freaking article. Anyway, hi. I like dragons.

  28. Nope. My “best day” changed after Daylight Savings and won’t go back no matter what time zone I am in now.

    Oh, and yesterday, I had more visitors than views. Figure that one out! πŸ™‚
