    Hi,
    thanks for plugin, it's very nice and usable!

    My concern is the numbers of page views of your plugin, it always differ from other stat services, like googe analitics or wordpress.com stats.

    If any stat service show say about 15 views of some post, your plugin shows about 10 time more, say 150 views, it always shows much more than other stats.

    What is wrong?

    P.S.
    I personally want to believe to your plugin numbers, but the true is the king.

    i think this is because of search engines, they are crawling your posts so pagewiev is incresing...it doesnt reflect on analytics because google do not count it self..
