Will my own visits to my website be logged as a visitor? If I edit my website 5x a day, will the value of 5 be added to site traffic, or does site traffic only register real visitors? Thanks in advance.

Hello Jack

Yes, if you visit your own live website, it will count as a visitor or visit (given certain conditions, more information here). However, it's only if you visit your live site. When you edit your site in the Yola Sitebuilder, this will not count as any visit because the URL for your website in the Sitebuilder is different from your live site URL. As soon as you click on the URL of your live site in the top left corner of your Sitebuilder, this may be counted as a visit / visitor again.
