A Note about Website Visitor Statistics:
Please note — In order for you to accurately understand what kind of traffic a website gets, you should inquire about “VISITORS” and not about “HITS”. Websites who report “hits” are inaccurately reporting their stats, because the number of “hits” does not represent the number of people visiting and viewing your ad.
Here is the definition of a “hit” (from Webopedia): The retrieval of any item, like a page or a graphic, from a Web server. For example, when a visitor calls up a Web page with four graphics, that’s five hits, one for the page and four for the graphics. For this reason, hits often aren’t a good indication of web traffic.
Therefore a graphics heavy site (i.e. one who hosts many cover ads) could potentially have 100+ “hits” for each person who visits one page. If the same person visits ten graphics heavy pages, it could account for 1,000 “hits”. But your ad is only being seen by ONE person.
