Leaving this field blank will mean the current hit count won't change.

You can use this in various situations, like if you want to import a counter from somewhere else. This way you can continue on counting without having to revert back to zero.

Double Count Settings

You can prevent single computers from giving you multiple hits.
Any single computer which visits your page (multiple times) within 24 hours can be set to only count as a single hit.

Select "Prevent Double Counts" and press the "Change" button.

This "Double Count Prevention" will count users based on their IP Address.
Any IP Address (as long as it doesn't change) will only count once towards the hit count.
Distinguishing users through their IP Address instead of through Cookies gives a more accurate count.

This improved accuracy means that the number of counts your counter racks up might decrease. Don't be alarmed by this, the counter is just giving you a more accurate representation of the actual number of people visiting your blog.

An IP Address is a number passed out to each computer linked to the internet.
*Views from mobile phones will not be affected by "Double Count Prevention".
All views from mobile phones will be counted for every time they access your site.

Weekly Count Display Settings
