  • My blog’s stats went up suddenly last month, doubling overnight (friday to saturday, jumped from 400 to 1000). This lasted for over a month and then yesterday, it fell down from 1500 to 400. Any reason why this fluctuation. I am using Stattraq on WP 1.5

  • I am not sure I understand your question. Any stats tool does NOT make your visitors to come or not to come. They just reflect what happens.
    How should we know why the visitors stopped to come to your site…?

    Assuming that everything stays the same, has anyone ever witnessed something similar on their websites. FYI, I handle 10 blogs with Stattraq and this is the first time i saw something like that.

    It’s not your stats program. You got hit with a lot of bots trolling for the WP 2.03 open registration bug. If you check your logs, you’ll see that your traffic jumped radically within a few days of the announcement of that security hole.
