A couple of questions about total views Answered

Do the number of views you get on a guide, forum topic, or a question count as part of your total views on your profile?

I would say no for forum topics and questions. The reason I say this is because I recently viewed a forum topic that had over 27,000 views, but the member showed a credit of only 6,000 or so views (and that was for the one ible that the member posted). For guides, I think you get credit for the views when the guide is looked at (but not for the instructables that are viewed if they didn't use your guide to get there).

It's weird because if I check my total views I see that i have 2,087 total views. I add all the views I got on my ibles. It totals to 2,087. So, I'm not sure if your amount of total views counts for guides too.

Well based on that, I'd have to say that ONLY instructables count for total views then. I didn't know specifically if guides counted or not, but I did figure out that forum topics and questions don't add to your views.

No. They do not count.
