Self-views in view count
If I search my book like any other reader and click on a chapter, would it be counted as a view? If I reply to a comment on my chapter, would that count?
Lastly, is there any way to find out who is reading/following my book? I seem to have no way knowing unless the readers comment or I happen to read the chapter at the same time and scroll to the bottom of the page.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
When you're in one of your chapters, if you scroll to the bottom it will tell you who is currently reading it. I think that's the only way to find out who your readers are (assuming they don't comment/review).
It looks like we are not going to get any definitive answer until probably one of the mods sees this.

I have found comments quite useful personally, especially the ones pointing out grammar and other mistakes. Of course, it also feels nice when people just like a chapter and leave a token comment -:)
As for views, I'm not really certain. I go to my fiction's page and chapters a lot to make sure that they look good, are formatted well, there are no typos, the images come out well, etc. But I haven't seen this reflected in my total views, I think?
I may be wrong, though!
