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.

What Is "ghs.google.com" vs. "ghs.googlehosted.com"?

With Google Domains registered custom domains becoming more normal, we are seeing one odd attention to detail, expressed as confusion in Blogger Help Forum: Learn More About Blogger.My website uses "ghs.google.com" - am I supposed to use "ghs.googlehosted.com", instead?It's good to be attentive to detail, particularly with custom domain publishing. This is one detail that may not require immediate attention, however.
