Not tracking outgoing link clicks

  1. Hi there,

    For the past few weeks I've noticed that the app is no longer accurately tracking when people click on links in my blog posts. Before it was pretty good at giving me a general idea on what people were clicking on, but now it seems to log only a small fraction of the links (mostly affiliate links) that people are clicking on. Is this a known issue? Thanks.

  2. Hi there @sarawatsonim!

    We've recently introduced a change on WordPress.com where we only count or track visits when the link opens the site in an external browser window, though is not a change on the app itself. That is, if a visitors clicks a link and the content is displayed within the app, only if they click again and open the site externally the visit will be tracked.

    Here's more information about this: https://en.support.wordpress.com/stats/#additional-info
