Can someone explain what Top Page page view actually is? I'm looking at our web analytics and the page view count seems very low for a particular PDF file. If I look at the IIS logs and filter it to that PDF I am getting more hits in one day than SharePoint analytics is reporting for a month.

Is it a view per user? Is it due to cached content?

I should probably rephrase this question to ask if the top pages report is plain wrong. If I also look in the health and usage table in SQL, it also shows a much higher count – dmce Jul 1 '14 at 9:12
