I found an answer explaining how the "people reached" statistics is populated in the Stats box in the Profile tab. Basically, if your answer qualifies, you will be credited the # of views of the question.
My question is in the scenario where you answer your own question and that your answer qualifies to be counted. Will you be credited
- twice: once for posting the question, and once for posting the answer, or
- once: because the answer is for the question that you have been credited?
