    Default Question about stats page

    Happy holidays to all!

    I've got a question about the stats page that my hosting service (Cedant) provides me with. There are a number of different catagories, including 'hits', 'visits' and 'sites', and I have no idea what these mean. An average day for me will read something like 2200 or 'hits', 70-80 'visits', and the 'sites' stat can be anywhere from 50-300. The reason I'm asking is because I'd like to get a feel for how many people are actually visiting my site on a daily basis, but I can't tell which-- indeed if any-- of these statsitics are giving me that info. I'm pretty sure it's not 'hits', since I can't believe 2000 people are seeing my site daily, but after that I don't know.

    If anyone can shed some insight on this it would be much appreciated.

    The hits are just that a hit to an item on the page. Each piece of artwork etc will cause a hit.

    The visits are actual times a visitor goes to your site.

    What you need to determine is the number of unique visitors.

    If I go to your page, when I get there I would be a visitor, and would show multiple and possibly dozens of hits. The first time I arrive I would be considered a unique visitor. If I return within 24 hours, I would not count as a unique, but would show as an additional vistor.

    Hope this helps.
