Why have I not thought of this stats trick sooner? It makes absolutely no sense to open up the stats page and then study the green bars on “views.” Yet, this metric means little. It should be toggled over to “reads” before I pay one iota of attention to the green bars.

Reads. For goodness’ sake, it’s all that matters for payment purposes. Get those bars higher for reads! That’s the ticket.
