So, I'm wondering . . . under my blog section in my control panel it lists Visits and Page Views. What's the difference? Thanks in advance

I've always assumed that the first is the number of times somebody has visited my blog in general, and the second is how many entries have been viewed in general

eg. If i visit your blog and then read 5 different entries, i would add 1 to your Visit number, and 5 to your page view number

But wheteher that assumption is correct, feck knows!

Thing is that right now I only have one blog entry so the large descrepany(sp?) seems odd - hmmmm.

Hey Katherine,

The discrepancy is probably because some people who visited your blog may have clicked things like category names, your nickname, etc (stuff listed in right column). Even if you have one blog entry, that still counts as a new page view - look at the url and notice that it changes when you click your nickname, for example.

Cheers,
ERic
