Currently OSQA does count any page reload and the number of views is keep raising even for page reloads or bots visits. This is not happening at all on stackoverflow and this is a big issue because it does alter the meaning of the views field: counting how many read the page.

I'll give you patch to put the old behavior back in a while. We'll probably make this behavior configurable.EDIT: patch is here . Is the bottom one.

IMO, we may want to maintain a list of known bots and spiders in the system, and we could ignore (or count separately) views and visits from those addresses. This is an issue we have encounterd on other sites, as well, and the truth is that the bot/spider visits are not absolutely meaningless, but they are definitely not the same as real human views.
It should be fairly easy to find sources for a decent list. We once used the list in the open source "awstats" analytics package, and that was pretty helpful.As far as the page reloads are concerned, if someone reloads a page, IMO it is another view. Only a person with spurious intent or someone who is easily amused will do this very often. I wouldn't worry about it.
