Yesterday, a total of 2340 pages were viewed, and that shattered my previous record of around 1500! When I woke up yesterday morning, there had already been over 1000 page views! I don't know what happened, because I wasn't excessively active on Twitter in the past couple days, and I didn't really publish many new pages in that time span!
I tried to do a little research. First, I started by looking at Google Analytics to see who was actively looking at my site. There were very few, so that didn't really tell me much. Then, I tracked its progress through the day. It seemed as though the normal amount of people were looking at a wide selection of pages, not just one particular one. I Googled my website address to see if anyone had recently published it, but no luck.
After all of that, I came to the conclusion that perhaps it was Google that was doing a view of each page on my site for its cache. Since I assume that I have around 750+ pages on my site, that could have been enough to send the page view totals sky high (for me)!
Anyway, I realize that most people wouldn't care much about this sort of thing, but I enjoyed trying to figure this one out! It's nice to know that we have so many tools at our disposal to help us solve our problems these days!
