Yesterday, I tweeted a twitpic of some weird stats from my Bit.ly account. It wasn’t the first time I’d encountered this anomaly, but the first time I’d bothered to mention it in public. To be honest, I thought that I must be mis-understanding the information somehow.
So here’s the deal. When you have a bit.ly account, you get an ‘Analyze’ page that shows you lots of information, including a bar chart of clicks over time. You can select a bar in the chart and it drops down the details for that bar. See the screenshot, below.
What I don’t understand is how I can have had 2 clicks on 7 links. I mean, if there’s been 2 clicks they can, at most, be clicks on 2 links, surely? So either I don’t understand what “2 Clicks on 7 Links” means, or it’s wrong. I’m happy if it’s the former, but not if it’s the latter.
Has anyone else seen this? Do you know what it’s all about?
