Page views confusion -- two questions

    Haven't been able to find the answer to my questions in the FAQ and suspect that someone here knows.

    Regarding Page Views:

    1. How is "day" defined? Does it begin at midnight Pacific Time through, say, 11:59 PM the following day?

    2. When I click "My Account" to see my page views, why do the numbers for "one day" sometimes change downward? It's happened a couple of times. One of my hubs, for example, will show 130 page views for today, then when I click Reload on my iMac, it drops to 124. It seems odd.

    Many thanks!

      I notice it too on my stats.

    I think it may be a revolutionary counter as it measures based on a 24 hour rotation.  When it starts and when it ends I think is non existent.  That is why they go down as well as up.

      Yes. It's called a 24 hour rolling window. So it's looking at the (immediate) previous 24 hours.

    My advice? Forget the stats here and use Analytics. They don't even usually show you today's stats until tomorrow so you have a complete picture.
