I have the same issue after updating to a new version of flexbanner so I am not sure if the issue is caused by flexbanner, the template or that everything is in order and the stats are correct. The number of impressions increased a lot (more than doubled) after updating to a new version of Flexbanner which I did at the end of September. Also the number of clicks almost doubled compared with before updating. Thanks in advance. BR, Floris

Thanks for your reply and I think the number of clicks are correct since I tested that by clicking on a banner myself and then it increased with just one click. I do not know how I can test if the number of impressions are correct. Do you have an idea how I can do that? Thanks in advance. BR Floris

You can test it easily. All you have to do is refresh the page with the banner on and see if the impressions counter increases by one.

ok thanks and I just tested that and the number increased with 9 but there might be other people visiting the site as well so still not sure if the number is correct or not.
