The Copy Editor and Strunk & White badges count post revisions, so yes, multiple edits on the same post do count.

Here is a SEDE query I created that matches* the SQL running in the real badge-awarding script (at least at the time I indirectly obtained it through this project). I don't believe the behaviour has changed since then.

How many Copy Editor/Strunk & White-qualifying edits have I made?

* The real query has to exclude deleted posts and return a list of users that don't have the badge yet, while the SEDE query doesn't need to exclude deleted content (because it doesn't exist in the data dump), and filters by a single user.

I agree the badge description is a bit confusing given this, but (a) most people would probably only be editing a given post once, and (b) try to explain this all in a tiny badge description. :) –  Jon Seigel Aug 6 '11 at 13:26
I like that link you gave, but I don't know what exactly is my UserId Can you please help? or anyone? –  Thursagen Aug 6 '11 at 13:39
@Thursagen: Go to your user profile. The user id will appear in the URL after /users/ (you should see a number) as well as on the search text box on the rightmost top corner. Note: User ids are different for each site. So, if you need SO user id, you should be in your SO's profile page. And same goes for Meta. –  user162697 Aug 6 '11 at 13:46

It keeps on giving me Error: Must declare the scalar variable "@Thursagen8183". Must declare the scalar variable "@UserId". Must declare the scalar variable "@UserId" –  Thursagen Aug 6 '11 at 13:50
What do I actually enter, "User:8183/Thursagen"? –  Thursagen Aug 6 '11 at 13:50
@Thursagen: Which site edit count would you like to see? –  user162697 Aug 6 '11 at 13:51
My –  Thursagen Aug 6 '11 at 13:51
@Thursagen: Just the number 8183. That's your user id. –  user162697 Aug 6 '11 at 13:52
@Siva, it worked! Thanks for your time and effort! –  Thursagen Aug 6 '11 at 13:53
It gave me zero –  Thursagen Aug 6 '11 at 13:54
@Thursagen: Please refer my answer (my answer is wrong though), I have just added steps to find your edits count in a different way. –  user162697 Aug 6 '11 at 14:07
