    Hi all,

    I'm learning to understand the "Usage Statistics" for my websites since I believe they can be used to optimize what I'm doing. However, there are terms that I have no clue, what it does, what it is and what it is supposed to tell me.
    They are:

    Total Hits
    Total Files
    Total Pages
    Total Visits
    Total KBytes

    Total Unique Sites
    Total Unique URLs
    Total Unique Referrers
    Total Unique User Agents

    from my understanding(rather new at this as well)

    Total Hits - a hit is any time a browser requests a page or graphics that make up the back. Say you have 1 page with 4 small graphics and a logo in the form of a gif then it would count as 6 hits.

    Total Files - self explanatory I think, like "Total Pages" but including all the graphic files or style sheets that one requires to view a page. Might as well be Total Hits? :P

    Total Pages - how many times a page has been served?

    Total Visits - how many times your site has been accessed

    Total KBytes - self explanatory(your bandwidth used)

    Total Unique Sites - not quite sure

    Total Unique URLs - not quite sure

    Total Unique Referrers - where people are coming from to get to your site

    Total Unique User Agents - what browser a visitor is using

    Quoting from my Host's help page:

    Each request made to the server comes from a unique site, which can be determined by a name or an IP address. The value shows how many unique IP addresses made requests to the server during the reporting time period.

    In other words, Sites is a unique visitor over that time period, so it's probably the most useful statistic in the bunch.
