3/6 RWR Week 4

I have often wondered how accurate counters are on sites. I know some sites know to count only one IP address and others will count a “view” everytime you visit their site. I think a lot of sites like the inflated numbers because it makes their site looks popular and helps with their reputation. On the other hand, perhaps the sites that have deflated numbers are hurting from this a little? Maybe they should have several thousand more views than it shows. This was very interesting though and I know they will find a way to fix this “problem” soon so it will be more accurate. For now, all websites have for stats is an estimate!
