    I like Counterize, but I discovered that the Firefox browser (and maybe others) prefetches pages. Countersize records these prefetches as if a user had actually viewed the prefetched pages.

    WordPress creates the link tags that trigger prefetch by default, although it’s easy for a plugin to turn them off. Ideally, Counterize should detect GET requests that are merely prefethces and not count them, but an easier solution might be to disable the link tags.
