inscrutable stats

WordPress stats can be weird.

At the moment, for today I have 29 views, 20 visitors, 43 likes, and 3 comments.

It seems strange to have more likes than views.

I’m guessing that means that some of the likes are through the reader or through people who get instant email messages of new posts.

Maybe there are reasons I don’t pay that much attention to my stats page…

  1. When I click the “Like” button in my email notification, it brings me here automatically. So there goes that theory. Could be a reader thing. If your post is short and they can read the whole thing in the reader, they don’t need to visit.

    1. Thanks for the info, Linda. Sometimes, when I click “like” in an email from blogs I follow it brings me to the post with my like already submitted and sometimes I have to click like when I get there and sometimes it doesn’t re-direct at all, so I hadn’t realized which of those I was. I do have it set that my emails include my whole posts. I realize it would drive more traffic to the site if I had it set for just the first few sentences, but it would confuse my 90-year-old dad if I changed it, so I won’t. πŸ˜‰ I also barely ever look at my reader, so it hadn’t occurred to me how much of the post shows up there. I’m still only marginally competent on the technical aspects of blogging. πŸ˜›
