What are Agg Views

April 20, 2004 23:18 by matthaw

So heres an interesting question - I've been using this weblog for quite some time now, and I just realized that I don't really know what "Agg Views" are. Now - before you go off your high horse, I know that they refer to RSS subscriptions in Aggregators (I'm not a moron), but my real question is, how is this stat collected? Is it based on RSS subscriptions to only my feed, or does that include the main feed subscribers as well? Anyone care to enlighten me?

Update: Scott and James expalined it very well. Thanks guys!

Each post contains a tiny gif in it, when this gif is requested on your server it counts as an agg view. This is commonly referred to as an agg bug.

Its just the number of times someone viewed your post in an aggregator. (well, an aggregator which renders HTML/Images


P.S. Yes, it does include the aggregate site
