Improved Posterous Web Stats

Many people have questioned and blogged about the very generous and encouraging web statistics produced by Posterous analytics versus Google stats. I have Google Analytics on my posterous blog and of course noticed the discrepency. I always thought the stats were most probably counting bot visits. Whatever those numbers were measuring it seems the fault has been rectified and my Posterous page views have been sober for a fair while now with pages recording realistic numbers since May 2011.
