I sent out about 550 emails to my Announcement List with a link to a PDF to download.
On that same day, my stats page show 6500 “hits” for that file!
I can’t believe the link was emailed around the world or something and that 6500 people downloaded that file.
The link to the file is not linked to from any web page.
The number of times the file was apparently “hit” dropped drastically the next day to 450 and then to under 50.
someone once explained this to me that PDF file downloads are downloaded in “chunks” or something and that would account for the high (apparent) numbers. (sorry, that is the best I can recollect…)
Can anyone else either explain this to me or point me to something that explains this bizarre accounting?
