Support » Plugins » [Plugin: WPBook] Stats are full of FB connection and I have too many views

  • After installing the plugin, I started to see in my Wp-Stats that as referrers there are only these:

    Referrer	Views…	782…	344…	250…	199…	179…	145…	145…

    And no other referres are showed up. Then, always in WP-Stats, I have seen a great increase of page views, from 3.000 now I’m on 10.000!! I can see this strange increase also on my Google analytic account. But real users seems not to be increased!
    So I don’t want that your plugin and the facebook apps are wasting my server’s resources by continually comunicating each other.

    Interesting – I’m not seeing this on any of the blogs I run WPBook on, but I don’t use WP-Stats plugin (I use Google Analytics and the stats plugin).

    (Google Analytics, in fact, doesn’t event show as a referrer at all).

    Did you by any chance also install the FBConnect plugin or the one?

    Did the references in your WP-Stats show your api_key in the querystring?

    Sorry, for wp-stats plugin I mean Stats plugin! I don’t use any other plugin that interact with facebook, like FBConnect plugin or
    Here are some complete url from the referrer tab of Stats plugin:

    Maybe they are caused by the Facebook Fan tab I have added to my website ( without #): the Facebook Fan widget is associated to the facebook app generated for WPBook, not for a fan page.

    Any idea?

    @galerio Try removing the Facebook Fan tab and see.

    I’m not getting any of these referrers in my stats and I have used WPBook for a very long time.

    Is anyone else seeing this behavior?

    This is also happening to one of my sites.

    I use the Facebook Connect plugin and have a FB fan page box on the site.

    On 18 April the stats started to climb unusually—from around 25,000 page views a day to over 50,000.

    I suspected it was something to do with changes at Facebook’s back end?

    Anyone seeing this who is not using the FB Connect plugin or the FB fan box?

    I think it must be related to one of those rather than WPBook as I’m not seeing this behavior on any of my test blogs

    I got the same Problem, but I don’t use the WPBook Plugin. I built my own Fanbox with Facebook Connect.

    And also in my Stats plugin are only facebook referrers…

    Speyburn – sorry I can’t help, but it seems to me this isn’t an issue with WPBook but with using Conenct.

    I have the same problem here. I’ve installed FB Connect only and I don’t have WPBook plugin installed. After I use it for a while I’ve completely uninstalled FB connect, I’ve deleted my FB app and APP ID as well. But I still see the same urls on my Google Analytics stats.

    Issue is because of Facebook connect plugin…
    I removed the plugin but It still have an instant of API key …I found this when I reinstall this plugin to verify…
    I don’t know how to fix this,,,also Emailed the author of the plugin..but seems like he is too busy to answer!!
