No, it needs to be edits for unique posts. Editing the same post twice doesn't count. – Martijn Pieters Jul 26 '12 at 19:35
There are more restrictions, see List of all badges with full descriptions – Martijn Pieters Jul 26 '12 at 19:36
Ok well let's say I never edit the same post twice and I count everytime I got a +2 for editing – ʞunɥdɐpɐɥd Jul 26 '12 at 19:36
@PhaDaPhunk: Read the badge list. Edits to the same post multiple times, edits to your own posts, and edits which only change tags all do not count. So no, going by how many times you've gotten a +2 is not at all an accurate measurement. You can still go here to see your progress towards the badge (at the right), until the new beta review goes into effect. – animuson Jul 26 '12 at 19:37
And lastly see Copy Editor with too few revisions?/ – Martijn Pieters Jul 26 '12 at 19:38
@animuson I never edit twice a post, I never edit tags only and editing my own post does not give a +2. There must be a delay then – ʞunɥdɐpɐɥd Jul 26 '12 at 19:38
@PhaDaPhunk: or some of the posts you've edited have been deleted. – Martijn Pieters Jul 26 '12 at 19:40
@PhaDaPhunk: Yes, most all badges have a delay. In general, badges are awarded sometime between 1 second and 24 hours after the criteria are met (if you wanted a timeframe). – animuson Jul 26 '12 at 19:41
@MartijnPieters Yeah that could be possible I didn't know they didn't count anymore. thanks – ʞunɥdɐpɐɥd Jul 26 '12 at 19:41
@PhaDaPhunk: Visit; I am reasonably sure you'll see your progress listed there. – Martijn Pieters Jul 26 '12 at 19:44
@MartijnPieters you were right. I added an answer – ʞunɥdɐpɐɥd Jul 26 '12 at 19:51
@animuson that page doesn't show anything accurate for me. Here is what it currently says (but look at my badge list). I don't know where it gets those numbers but I don't think they're mine. – Aaron Bertrand Jul 26 '12 at 19:56
@AaronBertrand: If you already have the badges, it obviously doesn't display your progress towards them. ;) For users which don't have them, it will display their progress towards Strunk & White, Copy Editor, and Electorate. – animuson Jul 26 '12 at 19:59
@animuson understood, but the numbers should still be accurate. What do the numbers in my screen shot even mean? – Aaron Bertrand Jul 26 '12 at 20:04

I read all your comments and I thanks you. I can now confirme it's a delay with this :

Badges are awarded by the SE software during batch processes, which occur at unspecified times.
