    Hello Kory

    - 1500 daily visitors

    The number of visitors to your site. They could be repeat visits unless they're classed as unique visitors.

    - 25000 page views

    Number of web pages served to all visitors.

    - 60, 000 daily hits

    Number of files served to all visitors, including images, style sheets, Javascript files etc.

    Hope that helps.

    Cheers,

    Neil

      When you hear (often on TV) people saying that a web site gets 10,000 'hits' per day, I often think to myself, mm, you don't know what a hit is, do you?

      If a web page has 10 graphics, 1 style sheet and 2 javascript files, then it takes 14 hits to display that page

      1 for the page
      10 for the graphics
      1 for the style sheet
      2 for the Javascript files

      Total: 14

      And each time that page is displayed, another 14 hits are counted, even if it's viewed by the same visitor.

      So that 10,000 hits equates to a much smaller number of actual visitors than the number of hits initially suggests.

      Cheers,

      Neil

    That was not a dumb question!!! I have been doing this for a few years and statistics still trip me up. Page rank, back links, hits, views, visitors...too much stuff to keep track of.

    [quote=korypearman;130249]I was just reading over the thread by Tuzic and they said:



    I thought Visitors/Views/Hits were all the same thing? What's the difference between a 'view' and a 'visitor' or even a 'hit'.

    Sorry for the dumb question but thanks for the feedback
