@Nuria As of now, Hovercard views should not be counted towards pageviews. We should revisit this task in some weeks from now, after we have results from Catalan and Greek, and by then Chinese Wikipedias.

Hovercards are now api requests: http://ca.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?action=query&format=json&prop=extracts%7Cpageimages%7Crevisions%7Cinfo&redirects=true&exintro=true&exsentences=2&explaintext=true&piprop=thumbnail&pithumbsize=300&rvprop=timestamp&inprop=watched&indexpageids=true&titles=Rodrigo_Rato

If they are to be counted as pageviews it will be best if they can be tagged as such (for example a "hovercards" tag in x-analytics header) otherwise there is no way to tell them apart from regular api calls.

Also is worth thinking if hovering over a link twice on the same page is two pageviews or 1.

@leila: understood.

This is more to point out that -if we wanted to count them- we couldn't, given that those pageviews are not tagged.

makes sense, @Nuria.

Declining this task for now, as Hovercards is still experimental.
When the day comes that Hovercards & Pageviews need to addressed, the discussion will spin up again.
