Problem with number of views Answered


I've a problem with the number of view on my Instructable : https://www.instructables.com/id/Bird-Pendant-from-Simple-Metal-Plate/

I looked for it by the regular way ("Let's make......." : https://www.instructables.com/howto/bird+pendant/), and on the page of results, it's written that it was seen near 600 times, but when I open it, it's written to the square on the left 1600 views. And the number of view on the result page didn't move for more than to weeks, even if my Instructable get more views.

Is that a problem with my PC or with the web site, and how can I fix it ? I tried to clear my browser cache, but it didn't change anything...

Thank you in advance :)

Different parts of the website are updated at different times, and at different frequencies.

The number on the actual instructable is the most accurate and up-to-date, followed by your orange board, followed by the lists seen by logged-in members, then finally the lists seen by non-logged-in readers.

Yep. And, newly published Instructables sometimes show weird numbers as the site aggregates the counts from across the servers, giving a more accurate count after about a week after being published.
