Backward count

Funny thing happened this evening with my stats page.
It clearly stated I had 153 views at the time, but my little graph block was well below the 150 line. Adding up the views per country, it totalled 153.
I refreshed my screen and my views reduced to 116, as I had ‘lost’ 27 from the USA and a variety of single views from other countries.
It’s all looking good at the moment though, so thanks everyone.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    A lot of the stats irregularities are, I understand, being caused by data traveling different routes to ultimately arrive on your Blog stats page. (That is why you can have a Comment without a Visitor!) If that really is the case, it would be nice if WP took a few moments to advise their users of same. 🙂

    I have never figured out what to do with that information…. do you do anything with it or just keep track to see where we all are?

    • I was always pleased to see the number of views rising, but in Nov 2015 they changed the way it was done and my figures plummetted. I’m more interested in the likes and comments now and try to keep my posts varied and interesting (?), but as for actually doing anything with them, no, I leave that to WP when they do their little graphs of the previous years performance.

        Periodically, WP sends me “stars” and stuff saying I’ve hit this or that level, but I write the blog posts for fun, so I don’t really pay attention to their ‘stats’… I do pay attention to sales and reviews, and each year those gradually increase. Since almost all reviews are positive, I figure we are doing okay… we did have one nasty review – the individual supposedly read a few pages and decided they didn’t like one character’s behavior/attitude … that was an early suspense/romance novel and the character had PTSD, which I didn’t say (just ‘showed’)… Despite the fact that the reviewer meant to be cruel, I took her opinion to mean I had shown Tempest’s underlying psychological issues just right.

      • I’ve had the 1337 sticker and landmark stuff, but don’t get anything like that now as I guess even WP run out of ‘awards’. Like you I blog for fun, it’s a good outlet for me and I love taking part in some of the challenges and photo prompts. As for your bad critic, good for you!

    I have noticed things like that at various times over the past couple of years. No idea why. :-/
