Inaccurate download statistics

description

Hi there,

I'm seeing some big differences in download stats for "ELMAH Core Library (no config)".
Right now, the gallery is claiming downloads of 1,283.
The package is hosted externally here: http://code.google.com/p/elmah/downloads/detail?name=elmah.corelibrary.1.2.nupkg
But it only has 829 downloads!!

Doesn't make much sense to me, unless there is some caching going on.
In which case, that completely blows all our download stats and makes it a little pointless to host externally!

Cheers,

James

Google appears to track unique downloads and codeplex all downloads? I guess google is ip address based. Using google and codeplex together seems a good way to get both stats :)
