I have been a member since 2012 but have not been very active other than creating my travel map. I have just recently started transferring some of my blogs from another blog site over to Travellerspoint. I have been watching my viewer count as I have posted each blog and discovered each time I visit my page I get counted as a view. It's not a major issue but really just a minor irritant. I realized my page views are a bit over stated. Is there any way possible I can turn off counting my visits as actual views. I previously used Blogger which is where I am transferring a lot of my old blogs from and I can turn off counting on my individual visits. Like I said it's not a major issue. It was just something I noticed.

Yes, your own views are counted. That's what it is. Makes the statistics look more favourable;-)

There is an option to link your blog to a Google Analytics account. If you do that you will get far more reliable (though also far less flattering) statistics. This is what I'd recommend if you care about having more accurate statistics.

The counter on Travellerspoint is really very basic and often includes bot visits, etc which bump up the stats considerably also.

Where is that to be found?
