I have activated the PodPress statistics and I have a few questions about the feature.
We had set up an additional FeedBurner feed to help make it easier to subscribe using different podcatchers like Google Reader, etc. Will the statistics reflect downloads or plays made using the FeedBurner feed? I've attempted to download and play through Google Reader and from the FeedBurner page itself, and those techniques do not seem to generate stats.
The FeedBurner feed was made with this RSS feed, created with PodPress which we used for Itunes:
I've been able to get stats from iTunes downloads, but not FeedBurner plays or downloads. The FeedBurner feed is:
Also, should the stats also reflect if someone plays on the iTunes preview webpage (not downloaded to iTunes itself)? I experimented with that and did not seem to get a hit for it.
And a more general question related to all of these: Does the PodPress stats ignore hits from my computer, much like the general WordPress stats ignore my hits because I'm an administrator? I tried some of these on other computers in the house.
Thanks again in advance for any time you can dedicate to these questions. You have been very helpful so far.
