Today, for the last 20 days, I see this Wordpress reporting of HITs:
Naturally, I am curious about that mountain of traffic this past few days but since the WP data is so flakey, I jump to Google analytics for that blog and look at the last 30 days:
hmmm, no sign of any traffic event in the last few days.
Looking back at the WP data, I notice that while visits had the mountain, the visitors did not. So there was maybe one person who returned to the blog over and over and read the entire blog a few times creating lots of visits but not lots of visitors.
Except, GA shows no corresponding increase in either page views or sessions that supports this idea.
- I go back to WP stats are flakey, they are counting some sort of bot activity that GA does not
- WP stats are flakey, what the heck is a "hit" anyway and why when I look closely, are they reporting last 20 days?
