I've been putting on a podcast since November using PodPress to keep track of my stats. Since then, the majority of our downloads have been reported under the "feed" section of the PodPress stats table. Within the last few episodes, however, the amount of iTunes downloads has drastically dropped compared to how much bandwidth each file is using. Our server stats show that listenership has been going up (episode 9, the last one, especially) except podpress is saying that it only got 14 downloads, three of which were test plays for a few seconds.
The main difference is that over the last three episodes, we went from 168 iTunes downloads, to 6, to 2. I've done test iTunes downloads from two different machines and it's not updating for those.
Does anyone know why it would all of the sudden stop recording our download stats correctly? We haven't changed anything with our feed or setup. The only thing I can think of is that I dragged my feet updating PodPress and WordPress until this evening, trying to fix it. But, even after the updates, iTunes downloads are not reporting when I try from my PC and laptop.
Any help or advice you could provide would be great. Thanks!
