It Doesn't Take Much to Skew the Stats
I was just going through my recent activity feed and answering comments that were left on my posts. I don't usually pay much attention to the number of views or likes here on persona Paper. It's the interaction that I most look forward to here, since this is a really good community for that.
Tonight I did happen to notice, however, that the number of views and likes for one of my recent polls seemed to be a lot smaller than the number of votes. And that puzzled me. My poll about the pumpkin flavoured condom had received a total of 8 votes, but the site is only recording 4 page views for it. In addition to my own replies, there were also comments from 6 different users.
A while back there was a discussion of how people using ad blockers can skew the stats for a post on Persona Paper. I hadn't thought about it in a while, but seeing such a large difference between the figures tonight was a reminder of how many folks here are still using ad blockers. When we have so little traffic here, it really makes an impact on all of our earnings.
