      It is a good one although it would be nice to be able to strike a happy balance between the seasons, if you know what I mean… Have you noticed a discrepancy between your likes and views lately?

        Well, I don’t pay a lot of attention to stats–but I think with the holidays, there are fewer comments. The odd thing to me is that the “followers” have increased, but not the views…..I think. So I just keep posting, hoping something will strike the right note for “anybody”.

          Same here – I’ll get twice as many likes on a post as views though out the day and, as you mentioned, new followers who don’t seem to be either viewing or liking… I have no idea what is going on…

              You betcha – I just found the answer to our question – apparently posts liked on the reader, an app or on the WP Topics page can be liked but don’t count as actual views because the viewer never actually navigated to the page where our wonderful posts are (that sucks) so don’t get counted in the stats. Why would you like a post that you haven’t read fully is what I wonder. One blogger has suggested to “compel readers to click into (the) blog to read the full post thereby creating a page view stat, … set (the) RSS Feed for posts to “summary” on this page > Settings > Reading… done, let’s see what happens now…

                Ohhhhh. Well, the other option would be to persuade WP to fix the dang Reader!! I don’t know ’bout you, but I’m not happy with it, and they’ve ignored my Support request. In the old days, I went to the Reader, clicked on the post, which took me to the blog (thereby giving the view stat). But because every time I read a post, the Reader takes me back to the Top of Reader–rather than back to where I left off–I don’t have extra time to make multiple and repeated multiple clicks; so if I can read the post without going to the blog–and I actually like it, they get the like and the comment (but maybe not the view, apparently). And, I Wouldn’t like a post I hadn’t read all the way through–that’s ridiculous. But sometimes the comments I get reveal that the reader either didn’t read the whole thing, or is coming from some perspective I don’t “get”–so, whaddayagonna do?
