From the 'Likes Button Loading' thread so as not to clutter that one up:
Your posts will be included in the WordPress.com Reader, if WordPress.com users subscribe to your site. But your posts won't appear in the Topic Pages, since these pages only list WordPress.com posts.
I guess I meant the Topics pages. If they won't ever appear in the Topics pages, how will .com members be able to subscribe unless they just happen to stumble across posts from web searches?
It's OK if they don't. I'm just trying to understand the process.
Next question ... On my Dashboard, the Top Posts section seems to become inactive after Midnight GMT until about Midnight local time. Outside those hours, the Top Posts will populate, but during those hours, all I see is "Nothing to Report', even though the View/Visitor counter increments on both the Dashboard and the Stats page and the Top Posts section populates on the Stats page.
It's as if there is a mismatch in clocks somewhere, but I can't really explain it.
