What Are Website Hits?
Sometimes people use the word hit in the context of website traffic.
It can refer to a few things, like: a click on a link (ad) that redirects visitor to a website ,a bot that generated a click, visitor from a search engine…
The difference between each hit is big.
In it’s simple way: a hit means a visit to a website,
And website hits actually means- website visitors, but this definition can be misleading sometimes.
Bots are AI or machine generated hits (software clicks) that are fake and not real hits.
This has no real value to a website because it will not make a real action on your website like buy, transfer money or real email registration.
Shortly, a waste of money and time.
Do you remember the days when web-masters used colorful page counters for counting traffic on a website ?
It looks outdated and funny these days and certainly not necessary any more.
We have a much better tracking systems for hits coming from Google ,WordPress ,url shortnes and many other sources.
Purchase website hits- Yes or No ?
Before purchasing a hit, please seek for a real hit, one that comes from real human users.
Only this kind of visitors are expected to bring your marketing leads and conversions.
It’s not always possible to make sale or get leads, but real visitors are the only one who can bring you close to that target.
Few companies are been honest and do state that they provide you with a fake hits (bots) and this is fine.
It can also be measured with several hit counters , but the truth is I don’t see a real value for such hits.
Search engines can detect this and penalize your website and surely no lead will be made in such case.
We at Netotraffic however, provide only real website hits.
Hits that are human, from real people that see your Ad and decided to click on it.
Hits, views and shows
The process of causing some to click on a Banner is not as simple as it may sound.
It needs to be planned carefully by the advertiser and publisher.
For example, here is a glimpse into our system that shows
The number of views we had to show an Ad to users before they decided to hit it (click).
As you can see , some time you need more than x10 times views for a single hit, and these Ads are optimized!
Metrics for counting website hits
There are few metrics we can talk about related to website hits.
- Page views : the number of times a webpage loads on the browser.
it shows the number of views for webpage over time. it’s a simple parament to calculate and use.
it doesn’t account for different visitors.
- Page visits: how many visitors (real people, browser, ip devices…) viewed your website page over time.
- Unique visitor: how many unique different visitors views a page.
- Session : the time frame from the moment a visitor came to your site and until he leaves or the session ends (30 minutes on average).
in this session time, the visitor can spent time on one or more pages.
This is only a partial list of course, but it gives the idea on how hits can be further analyzed for marketing purposes.
