I am just registering a new domain and checked the stats for one that I own but have not done anything with for a long time. It is parked, no content.

I have no idea how to read the stats (I don't really know why I check them)

Can anyone tell me what these mean? Are people still searching for the website or are these just search engine crawls?

Sorry to be so unknowledgeable, my last hosting service didn't use Cpanel and was much clearer with statistics.

    Hey I am puzzled by that too! Hope to hear from Warriors advice.

    Would it be possible to take a screen capture of this? It's kind of hard to tell which numbers belong to what category.

    I thinks a screen shot might work out better because it looks like you just "copy and pasted" the information which left out all the formating and other good stuff that may have made the information a little more understandable...

    Hi Katie,

    The last number show you the amount of hits your site received
    They have set their stats up giving you too much info. go to google analytics and sign up that will make it so much easier for you these stats are silly for the average user.

      I would recommend Google Analytics as well. Easy to setup and so much more user friendly than log files.
