Hi,
Yesterday I started an article called Low-cost Airlines.
Out of curiousity I just checked the stats: it says about 30+ page views that day.
When I check the geographical distribution of those page views I only see Netherlands (9, that would be me I guess) and Ireland (3, guess Lil..;)).

So two questions:
1. The number count doesn't match with the total by country?
2. Obviously: the pageviews are not unique, but counted as multiple pageviews by the same IP adress?

Out of curiosity, how do you check the stats?

There's no such thing as too much time as long as you are enjoying it

When you go to an article, top right there is a link to 'stats'. But it's only visible to you if you have made a contribution to that same article. Don't know why exactly

Hehehe, I guess. But I think I'll be going on a few days hiatus now from guide writing. Will be back to it after submission.

And thanks for the tips. Something I've never check out before, but then again to be honest I'm not good at checking stats for stuff like this. I don't even remember the last time I check the stats for the blogs I write...

Peter will have to respond to this one as it's pulled directly from the Google Analytics API, and as he set it up, I'm not sure what parts it's pulling in exactly. One issue I've noticed with stats there before is stats are often quite delayed coming in on all the reports, so it's usually two days later that I actually trust the stats from two days earlier.

Sorry for the late answer.

1. A user's location can't always be worked out, which is why you might end up with this kind of difference. Google Analytics can be a bit slow too sometimes on more detailed information, so maybe it was more correct a bit later? I wouldn't expect the difference to be quite as large as you're saying.

2. Correct, these would be total pageviews, not unique visits. Way more flattering this way lol
