The blog I need help with is williamb97.wordpress.com. Sep 23, 2014 at 3:33 am #2058618 raincoasterMember Because some of your viewers read more than one post. Every link on your website they click on while they’re there counts as another hit. Author Posts The topic ‘Hits vs. Views’ is closed to new replies.
