The economics beta site is now 31 days old, and has, Area51 reports, had just 138 visits per day on average. But this question alone - In a competitive market, why is movie theater popcorn expensive? - has had over 14k views - which is equivalent to over 400 visits for each of the 31 days that the site has been open.
How can that be? Does the area51 counting-algorithm crop the highest-viewed questions at a certain number of views, for the purposes of calculating visits/day?
