    I understand how stats work in general on the website but I was wondering, if the same person views my blog once a day, does it only count the first time that IP address viewed my site or does it count every time the same person checked my blog as 1 hit? So say i have 1500 hits over a week, does it mean 1500 different people saw my site over that week or could it possibly count the same person multiple times (for each time they checked my blog)?

    The blog I need help with is



    The WordPress.COM stats package counts page views – so it could be either 1500 different people visiting or one person 1500 visits – or probably some combination in between.
