On the graphs below we see three primary statistics: hits, page views, and unique visitors.
A unique visitor is one visit from a particular visitor over a certain period of time. So if a user spends 10 minutes browsing several pages of your web site, this would be one unique.
A hit occurs every time a user opens a page on your Web site different to the previous page they viewed. Refreshing the same page for instance won't count as a hit as it isn't a new page view.
Page views are the total number of page views regardless of it being a unique visit, the same page loaded again, or a different page.
Visitor Statistics can be viewed in real-time reports and graphs grouped by the hour, day, week, month or year.
