What does stats widget measure?

  1. I've been looking at my stats per the stats widget and the stats from Site Meter. Since I didn't add Site Meter from day 1 of my blog, there is a difference between the two. Since Site Meter has the ability to adjust for viewers before it was installed, I did that once we got the stats widget in Regulus. Today I noticed that the two are not in sync in terms of total visitors and that the difference between the two seems to be getting larger.

    I thought the stats widget showed the number of visitors but I'm beginning to think it is showing page views. Is this correct? (BTW - I checked the FAQ and searched the forum before I posted this.)

  2. Looks like visitors to me as it's not increasing as I click around my test blog but since the sidebars are cached, there's no real way for us to tell. :(

  3. Maybe podz can weigh in on this?

  5. Hi guys. The stats widget gets its numbers from the same database as the Blog Stats admin page graphs. It's pretty much page views but it will try to exclude logged-in viewers (like yourself) and it is only updated every few minutes.

  6. it is only updated every few minutes.

    That must be why it wasn't updating it when I was poking around my test blog keeping track of it.

    Thanks Andy,

  7. Thanks Andy. I thought it must be page views.
