The element14 site is regularly indexed/scraped by other web services.
It might be that these "hits" are counted by the element14 platform but the embedded resources are not accessed.
That would make sense. When I look at the menu option Content-->Videos, it shows the video only having <100 hits.
I added YouTube video for a Project 14 challenge blog entry. The Element 14 website shows over 14000 views, but you tube only shows ~400.
YouTube's help claims that embedded video views count towards views. Any thoughts as to why the difference?
