    Question Awstat page views not reliable?

    Hi there,

    This is something bizarre... I know Awstat stat greatly differs than the statistics produced by Adsense, and even with CJ. You get much lower page views over the ad networks than you see with the statistics produced by Awstat. However, I decided to test it by myself, and found that there is a huge difference between the page views over Awstat, then the page views my script have found.

    Is anybody else over here see this happening or has an explanation.

    I won't accept answers such as "Your script is wrong"

    your script isn't right



    just throwing an idea out there... what about when you hit the back button or load a page thats been cached? is it possible awstats would count it as another page view but your script wouldn't be executed again?

    Well mmm , hmmm, yep that is something I didn't thought about However all of my pages set to expire:
    PHP Code:
    <META HTTP-EQUIV="Expires" CONTENT="Thu, 01 Dec 1994 16:00:00 GMT">
    <
    META HTTP-EQUIV="Cache-Control" CONTENT="no-cache"
    Furthermore CJ impressions show statistics that are much closer to my script then Awstat...
