How does Posterous measure postviews?

There are many things that trigger a "view" for a post and a site: viewing the blog triggers a view for all posts visible on that page. In addition, a view will be triggered by the blog post page itself, bots and crawlers, and http://posterous.com/explore. View counts are updated every five minutes.
Google Analytics is better at measuring visitors and filtering out impressions triggered by search engine bots, crawlers, or indexers.
