Help, Blogger, Please

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?

  1. Is the dotted line view counter on the home page or dashboard? I don’t seem to have that feature.

  2. Scroll to the bottom for help on your question.

    It’s on the home page. It tells me I’m getting about 20 site views an hour. That is an improvement.
