When I check my WP stats I see that every day there are one or two posts that get LOTS of hits (10000+) while in the list of top referrers, there are never any posts getting that high numbers. This seems illogical to me. These ‘top posts’ also vastly outnumber posts #2 or 3 in the ranking, and change every day or every other day. They are recent posts, but not the most recent ones.
I’m trying to work out where those high numbers are coming from. As I said they they are not in the list of top referrers. Moreover, if I check other data i.e. from my cpanel stats, there is no trace of these particular posts getting that many views. So can anyone explain this to me?
