I put this here because you all got me thinking.

Up at the top of the screen, you all have Views: 14385824 (as I type this) and HomerJFong (?) is the Ten Millionth Hit.

Is a view different from a hit?

I as this because I'm analyzing the stats for my board on it's own subdomain and I have this from my logs (well, the AWstats, I can also use Analog and Webalizer)

Unique Visitors: 195 (I assume that this just means I've had 195 different IPs, because I only have 20 members, and half of them have dialup, and also visit from work)

Number of Visits: 648

Pages: 23828

Hits: 158879

Sooooooooo...What is a "good" measure of my traffic? Visits, Pages, or Hits?

-------------------

Edit, while I'm on the subject, Webalizer, Analog, and Awstats give me different #s for the different stats. If anyone has used 2 or more, do you have a prefrence for one or the other?

I'm very lazy and use them interchangably, but I'm talking about pageviews all the time. "Hits" technically would include all graphical elements, for example - so all those people that brag about millions of hits usually are counting a lot of things that aren't pages.

>Webalizer, Analog, and Awstats

I have access to Analog but I haven't actually seen it. But of ther other two, I like Awstats' presentation over Webalizer.

I've used both Webalizer and Analog in the past, but now I use AXS exclusively for all of my sites.

They aren't related at all, except they are both written in PHP and access a database. I played around with it before I set up my first ACMLM board in Oct. of 2000 - so it's been a while since I've really looked into it. Version 2.
