This is, potentially, a meta-meta question, but:

Is the view counter actually correct? For this question about router direction as of the time of my noticing, there were 3 views noted and 4 answers from 4 different people!

How does that work?

Yes and no. It was accurate at the time is was calculated but it could be higher by the time you view it. I am pretty sure this has to do with caching. I will look up the meta question about this.

In the short term this site has the answer.

Meta about how view calculation works

I think the answer you are looking for is there..... and yes it's caching.

  • Thank you. Thank you for sharing that link twice. I got a good chuckle both times. – FreeMan Apr 20 '15 at 18:13
  • @FreeMan I didnt realize there was a meta about this at first. The comment stood alone but it belongs in the answer. That is why I wrote [this site] as it is more likely people will look at it. – Matt Apr 20 '15 at 18:14
