I’ve had wordpress popular posts installed for months now. The view count that WordPress Popular Posts is showing on the dash board doesn’t match the count I’m seeing on Google Analytics. Nor does it really make sense. For example, the count popular posts displays for one of my recent posts is 1 view. However, I have 5 comments from unique non-users on this post. Which would indicate that there has been at least 5 views. According to google analytics this same post has had 358 page views. (This is the post I’m talking about: http://flipcookbook.com/2010/08/rosy-cherry-cake/)
Also, while debugging this I noticed a weird thing: The popular posts’ view count incremented when I accessed a post while my device was on my wifi. Once I switched to 3g however, it stopped counting the view. Not sure if this is all related.
Thanks for any suggestions you can provide! Really looking forward to getting this working correctly.
