WordPress changed how things work on your admin page, so instead of using the WordPress.com Stats plugin to view your blog’s stats, we’ve had to install the Jetpack plugin which is supposed to be this helpful all-in-one thing. That’s fine and dandy, but it barely works properly. As you can see above, there’s a big issue with the search term referrals, it only shows up to a certain amount. The rest of the referrals are then lumped under a link labeled “Other search terms,” and if you click that link, it takes you to the stats page for that particular day where, if you’re lucky, you can see the rest of your referrals. However, even that doesn’t always work, it seems if you have more than 20 keyword referrals then the plugin turns into a lazy teenager who doesn’t want to bother working any harder.
I’m not sure how Jetpack think this is helpful, WordPress.com Stats never did this. Jetpack’s overloaded with crap nobody actually needs, such as a spellcheck which is uneccessary since this update page already has one. I’m just assuming the plugin’s creators spent so much time trying to make a helpful plugin that they never actually finished it, so it just sort of folds in on itself when it has to read more than 20 links and search term referrals. This blog isn’t super popular, but it’s apparently popular enough that Jetpack hates me. Thanks, WordPress.
