Page Views

A page view, which is sometimes referred to as a 'hit', is counted every time a web page is requested from our site.

Visits

A visit is recorded as the number of individual sessions initiated by all the visitors to our site. If a visitor makes a number of individual sessions to our website each one is counted as a visit.

Unique Visitors

The 'Unique Visitor' figure represents the number of uniquely identified people who made their first recorded visit to the web site during the selected report period. A repeat visit is identified by a long-lasting cookie which the web site user has accepted. One unique web site user can make multiple visits, but is identified as a returning visitor and as such is not counted more than once as a unique visitor during the report period.
