    My website is at http://bachutha.com and I was using Atahualpa theme but have changed the theme to Twenty Seventeen to figure out why additional webpages show up in the stats. I have deactivated all plugins and cache so that the interaction is with me and WordPress only. Currently on WP 4.9.2 but this has occured in earlier versions.

    After seeing my blog webpages that I did not visit in the stats I decided to check the access logs to see if they were recorded there. Below is a small part of my access logs.

    Just to show you the order of pages I have listed part of the blog menu below. The item number shows the sequence of the posts, smaller numbers mean earlier posts.

    My Menu
    126. delicious garlic chili sauce with apple cider vinegar
    125. making good quality chili powder with a delonghi grinder
    124. healthy delicious coconut milk santan coffee
    123. chia seed santan coconut milk cherry fruit pudding
    122. increase metabolic rate with raw garlic and virgin coconut oil
    121. simple slow cooking pork soup recipe
    120. high fiber orange juice with bioflavonoids and pectin diet
    119. easy way mash hard boiled eggs
    118. no-fly-zone

    From the access log you can observe that the first log statement shows I clicked on
    “/making-good-quality-chili-powder-with-a-delonghi-grinder/”
    to view that page and I viewed that page. The access log shows in the second statement that WP did a “GET” on the next post
    “/delicious-garlic-chili-sauce-with-apple-cider-vinegar/”
    but no one viewed this page. Why does this second statement appear if the page was not viewed?

    The 4th access log statement shows that I was still on the first page “/making-good-quality-chili-powder-with-a-delonghi-grinder/” and not on the next page “/delicious-garlic-chili-sauce-with-apple-cider-vinegar/” when I clicked on the menu to view “/chia-seed-santan-coconut-milk-cherry-fruit-pudding/”

    What is interesting is that, as shown on the 6th access log statement Google was called to view that page, “/chia-seed-santan-coconut-milk-cherry-fruit-pudding/”, too. I have noticed that it can take Google about 3 seconds to 30 seconds to visit the page it was called to view. I have seen this occurring many times over the last one year. I do not remember if it occurred earlier.

    If I have understood this clearly, then WP
    1) calls the next post while I am viewing a post but does not display it to me
    2) calls Google to view this post or the next post without me knowing about it.

    What can I do to stop this from happening?
