OVER 750.000 VISITORS!
Wow! It's nice to be liked. But it is just a number I know.
But 750,000 page views is nothing compared to what the Weather Channel (2 Billion a day!)
or Google (3.5 Billion a day!)
or Alex Cavanaugh gets.
I mean Alex gets a Zillion Page Views per day. I am just a cyber minnow. :-)
I see some of you scratching your heads, asking, "What is a Page View as compared to Unique Visitors?"
A page view is triggered when any page is loaded by any visitor to your site.
For example, if you click this link and the page loads, you have triggered a page view.
If you click the link 20 more times today, it will count as 20 page views.
But why anyone would want to do that is beyond me!
A unique visitor is an individual user who has accessed your site.
It is determined by the IP address of the computer or device that the user is browsing from,
combined with a cookie on the browser they are using.
No matter of how many visits a visitor makes, if he is on the same device and same browser, only one unique visitor is counted.
For example, if you visit this link once today, you will be counted as a unique visitor.
If you come back to this site 20 more times today, you are still counted as one unique visitor.
WATCH THE BOUNCING BALL
At the end of the day, the most important factor for growing your page views and unique visitors is content.
If your content is not engaging and relevant to your users, they are going to "bounce" and never come back.
The "bounce rate" is the percentage of visitors who come to your site and leave within a few seconds.
A high bounce rate indicates that visitors didn't like what they saw or didn't find what they were looking for.
HAVE YOU GOT THE TIME?
The amount of time spent on the page indicates whether users are actually reading or watching what you're serving up.
The higher the average time on a page, the more engaged your audience is in that particular page.
