A view is recorded every time a page is loaded.
For instance, if someone visits one of your blog posts, that is counted as a view. If they click on your homepage, that’s another view. And if they click back to the blog post, that’s another view.
Independent Analytics does not record views for logged-in users, so your activity on the site will not be recorded as long as you’re logged in. You can follow these steps to enable tracking of logged-in users.
