Don’t count me

This was a highly requested feature we put in a few days ago, we’ve just been letting it gel for a bit before blogging about it.

Your stats system no longer counts your own hits to your own blog when you’re logged in. This way you can get a better idea of what your actual traffic is without counting those thousand times you reloaded you home page to see if anyone commented. ;)

    Does it recalculates all the previous stats? Or only apply to the recent stats?

    …now all we need to know is how the fastest growing blog stuff works. I can see no systematics behind the top lists usually.

    Great feature! :)
    Could you add a feature that sums up hits posts-wise. So that I may know which post got the maximum number of hits. Not just over a period of week, but total number of hits till now.

    Looking at my stats today I’m confused. Instead of the nice graph line I’m used to I get coloured blocks ‘A’ and ‘B’. What does this mean? But more puzzling is that the stats are for hits from 2003 to 2005 i.e. before I began this blog. Is it me – or what?

    It will be even nicer, if I can input the IPs that I don’t want to be included in the count…
