Sites versus Visits
- Can someone explain to me how the number of sites for a given day can
be less than the number of visits?
From my understanding, a site is defined as a unique IP and a visit
as a request for a page within a timeout timeframe. So sites can be
lower than visits if a site requests a non-page, e.g. crawlers
searching for robot.txt. But on some days I get visits that are
drastically lower than sites (as much as half the number of sites).
Can anyone explain this? I'm trying to figure out how many users hit
my site per day. With the visits being so much lower than sites, I'm
not sure if the sites number is a good approximation for the number
Thanks for your help.
