Does it only update after every ten hits or something? I just thought it sort of odd that it was ten the first couple times I checked it, then twenty, then thirty.
One, Two, Three and…

It rounds to ten, so yeah. That's pretty much right.

that was one of the questions I had about pageviews.. the other is, does it “estimate” or anything like that? And, if it does, can an author still feel assured that the number is a pretty close estimate to how many pagviews a comic actually received?

I've had a few questions about that myself. So it's rather a accurate measurement? I've had a sneaking suspicion that it multiplies by 10 to get the number listed in the Pageviews. I guess I'm wrong (i figured ‘theres no way i couldve gotten 210 pageviews’ you know?).

Im pretty sure that It rounds up to every ten. SO if you have 236 pageveiws it'll show 240.

That logs the total number of hits from all pages, right? It's not one per person accessing the comic in general (because that would be surprising huge).

Are the pageview totals counting only once for a person per day no matter how many times they access the comic, or can someone just keep hitting reload to drive their total up? Or could I go through my archive and get a pageview count for every page I look at? I'm only asking because recently I had a huge surge in the number of views and I thought it was a little odd.

I was giddy, but I wanted to make sure >.<;.

I mean, I also got alot of comments, but an answer here would clear my doubts up.

And if it is true, how do you find the people that abuse this? I read on the Wikipedia that the most popular list is derived from individual comic traffic. I'm not accusing anyone of this or anything; just wondering how it all works.
