Showing the View Count for Posts in the Reader feed

If your site is connected and you have Stats enabled, then the Reader feed shows the view count for each post with at least 10 views. Larger view counts are rounded and displayed like 93K (for values close to 93,000 views) or 3.2M (for values close to 3,200,000 views).

  2. Click Traffic.
  3. Scroll down to the Jetpack Stats section and expand it.
  4. Toggle the Reader “Show post views for this site” setting to the off position.

Honoring DNT

Do Not Track (DNT) is a feature in web browsers and websites that asks advertisers and other web software providers to not track individuals’ browsing habits. As a site owner, you can force the Jetpack Stats feature to honor any visitors with DNT enabled and not track their activity (i.e., post and page views). For information about how to do this, see our troubleshooting and FAQs page.

Privacy Information

Jetpack Stats are activated by default. While there is no deactivation control from within the Jetpack settings interface, you can deactivate it by following our guide to Control Jetpack Features on One Page.

Activity Tracked
Site Owners / Users

We track when, and by which user, the feature is activated and deactivated. We also track when, and which, configuration settings are modified (and by which user). If the user viewing the stats explicitly requests to view them without JavaScript turned on, we will set a cookie to remember this preference.

We also track stats page views in your dashboard.

Additionally, if the site’s settings are configured to record events for logged-in users of the site, the following events will also be recorded: post and page views, video plays (if videos are hosted by, outbound link clicks, referring URLs and search terms, and country.

You can now honor a visitor’s DNT preference, as well.

Site Visitors

Post and page views, video plays (if videos are hosted by, outbound link clicks, referring URLs and search engine terms, and country. When this feature is enabled, Jetpack also tracks performance on each page load that includes the JavaScript file we use for Stats. This is exclusively for aggregate performance tracking across Jetpack sites in order to make sure that our plugin and code is not causing performance issues. This includes the tracking of page load times and resource loading duration (image files, JavaScript files, CSS files, etc.).

A site owner can choose to honor your DNT preference.

Data Visibility and Retention

Any piece of data explicitly identifying a specific user (IP address, ID, username, etc.) is not visible to the site owner when using this feature. For example, a site owner can see that a specific post has 285 views, but he/she cannot see which specific users/accounts viewed that post.

Stats logs — containing visitor IP addresses and usernames (if available) — are retained by Automattic for 28 days and are used only for the purpose of powering this feature.
