What is a Pageview? How are Pageviews Recorded?
What is a pageview?
A pageview is defined as a view of a page on your site that includes your Fonts.com project.
If a visitor clicks reload after reaching the page, this is counted as an additional pageview. If a visitor navigates to a different page and then returns to the original page, a pageview is recorded for the different page (if it includes a Fonts.com project) as well as another pageview being recorded for the original page.
How are pageviews recorded?
Pageviews are recorded with a technique similar to a ‘tracking pixel’. All publish methods, including self-host kits, include a reference to an empty CSS file on our worldwide CDN and the visitor’s browser makes a call to this file once every time a Fonts.com web font project is loaded on a page. The access logs for this file are processed to count pageview usage.
