Stats don't match

I just recently realized that the two kind of stats you can get for your instructables don't match. For example my "pram to kids trailer Instructable":
Yesterday it gave me more than 1000 hits, when I checked via the stats button on the ibles page. But today as I rechecked via the stats tab on my account page with only this ible marked, it gave me only about 350 hits...
It is not of big importance, and I would rather call it a glitch then a bug, but it would be nice to get correct stats on both ways...

Mine are inflated by a factor of 10, I reckon, and pretty much always have been since the new method of counting started. As far as I can tell, the numbers never reset to zero any more, so I think the "Views Today" number actually means "Views over the last 10 days".

I think sometimes the stats on the instructables page is not reset to 0 each day and the number carries over, so the 1000 may be from 2 days. Where as the stats from your account page probably is a daily count.

That is something I realized as well and added up the numbers on the stats page to compare. The total was almost 50% of the hits counted on the instructables page.

Also, define "day". The servers work on Californian time, so the midnight reset actually happens around 0800 German time.

There was something with different servers holding the "latest" counts or stats. When you look at your account page vs a caching server for general pageviews, it was supposed to be more accurate but who knows how their updating works.
