Recent Visitor Stats

This report item shows information on the most recent visitors to a website (based on a 15 minute period). Information available pertains to the first hit for that visitor, the last logged hit for the visitor, and some basic information on their number of hits, views, and bandwidth usage.

Terms Used

Bandwidth - Bandwidth represents the total number of kilobytes that were sent to people visiting your site. Bandwidth includes all resources requested by the users.

First Hit - First Hit represents the date and time that the visitor first hit your web site during this visit.

Hits - A hit represents a request to your web site for a file such as an image, a web page, or a CGI script. One web page may contain several related resources, and as a result, a visitor viewing one web page may trigger several hits. Hits generated as a result of an error (either a 400 or 500 level error) are not counted as actual hits to your site, and are kept separate from successful hits.

Last Hit - Last Hit represents the date and time that the visitor was last active on your site

Page Views - A page view is a successful request for a file on your web site that is considered to be a page. These usually mean files with extensions such as .txt, .asp, .aspx, .php, etc. Views generated as a result of an error (either a 400 or 500 level error) are not counted as actual views for your site, and are kept separate from successful views.
