The view count is not increased for the same IP address, within certain thresholds.

However, if you visit a question 1 day later, the count will probably increase, even if we saw the IP before.

Tracking IP lists per question would be a bit on the expensive side.

thank you waffles. I encountered this doubt while checking if anyone has replied to my question or atleast viewed by refreshing the page often. – CHID Jan 14 '11 at 6:25
@waffled what about a SO user if I log in to site and visit on question and after a weak I visit that question again is it count 2 times? or each question has a table that contain SO visited user? – Am1rr3zA Feb 3 '11 at 20:44
Is it possible that the threshold is less than a day? I've been refreshing fairly often (every 5-10 minutes or so) many times the view count goes up by just 1.. – snapfractalpop Apr 5 '12 at 21:41
