I referred the "profile views" question related to purpose, self view and narcissism; but couldn't find the answer.

  1. Are repeat views from SO users added to profile views ? If yes then at what frequency/interval they are added (i.e. per minute, per day, per week) ?
  2. If a profile is viewed by unregistered SO viewer, will it be added ?

    Common sense tells me it's the number of users who viewed your profile but it might also be the number of unique IP views like question views. Official answer will be awesome. Apr 19, 2012 at 9:50

    Some investigating gives me this: The views are cached or something and do not update. I created an account on History.SE and got 0 views, even when viewing from a proxy and whatnot. Apr 23, 2012 at 4:33
