Requesting an explanation as to what the difference is between a"Hits" and a "Visit" when displayed in a report.
The " Hits" in reports indicates the number of times that item was requested, whereas "Visits" specifies the number of sessions regardless of the number An access of a web page or a file will be processed as a "Hit" by the web server. For example, if a web page contains 5 pictures, a visit on that page will be logged as 6 "hits" , one hit for the web page, 5hits for the pictures.
If a visitor viewed 10 web pages on the web site, each page contain 10 pictures, the web server will record: 110 Hits
10 Page Views
1 visit If the visitor left the web site and came back 30 minutes later, Nihuo Web Log Analyzer will report 2 visits. If the visitor came back within 30 minutes, Nihuo Web Log Analyzer will still report 1 visit.
A unique user (with unique IP address) is determined by the IP address. By default, a visit session is terminated when a user falls inactive for more than 30 minutes. So a unique user (with unique IP address) may visit your web site twice and get reported as two visits.
