I am trying to get some idea of how many people are reading or at least opening my blog page. WordPress gives me a “site stats” page, but I know that what’s there is not accurate. I get more “likes” from readers around the world than I get hits registering on the Site Stats page.
There’s a dotted line in the upper left hand corner of the screen, too. When you run the mouse over it, you get a purported average of “site views per hour for the last 48 hours.” This number seems more realistic to me.
But, I am still baffled by the difference on my Site Stats page and what appears up there when I run the mouse over that line.
Can anybody out there explain this to me?
