Per your question above: We compared the results from sessionizing by IP
address alone vs. sessionizing by the combination of IP address with the
user agent string a while back. With the refined method of adding the
user agent string into the equasion the number of visits measured seemed
to increase by about 10% on the average. So I would say you get an
impressive 10% more accuracy with the combined approach.
Needless to say that neither approach is useful for tracking repeat
visit behavior. For that you want to capture either cookies or even
better user names.
