    I've written an HTTP wrapper in JAVA that implements the basic POST (i.e., to a form) and GET (i.e, retrieve the source code of any page) for any url.

    When I use POST or GET on my website (for which I have a page load counter) or on Youtube, it doesn't count as an official "hit" at all. Can the GET and POST method to constitute an page view? I am also accepting cookies btw.

    I am not totally sure what you're asking here. Are you trying to update your counter on a pageview? If so, can you not write a function and have a <body onload="updatecount"()> or something?

    It depends on the site that is being used, if a pixel needs to load on the page, or the headers that are sent. For example it filters googlebot etc out of the page views by examing the headers.

    There is a list of headers here:
