The Profile Views Counter Is Frozen

A couple weeks ago, I reported an increasingly common complaint among bloggers
My profile view counter is stuck. It's been stuck for some time now. When is Blogger going to fix this?
and recently, my standard reply, which I copy and paste into my post, became
It's not broken, it's frozen. Blogger made a performance related compromise, and now provides "estimated" hit counts. Get a real visitor counter (free) and install it on your blog(s). You'll get more accurate and detailed information.


Unfortunately, that reply fails to satisfy all bloggers complaining about the frozen counter. Maybe, that's because they don't understand the issues.

One blogger even gave a business case for using the actual profile view counter
I have Statcounter, and I DO understand that the profile counter is just how often someone looks at my profile. That's precisely what interests me: whether someone cares a bit more for the blog that they'll spend another second looking up my profile.
So, let's see how SiteMeter and / or StatCounter can be used to meter profile views.


SiteMeter has its "recent visitors" - "By Out Clicks" page. It didn't take too much looking, to find a profile view.

There's the Techo-Nerd. LOL.


One profile view, right there. Using the Profile View Counter, we would have simply seen a counter increment of "1'. No more.

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.
