View Full Version : PHP making my page views smaller

12-20-2003, 02:18 AM
Ever sinse I turned my site into a PHP one the vistors numbers have increased but the page views have dramaticallu decreased... Is this because webalizer is only counting a view as one hit on the file per user per day or has it actually gone down?

webalizer is totally inaccurate u should download axs...awstat numbers are a bit closer than webalizer

It should count them the same as it did before, as they are all individual pages still.

Try another stats program and see what happens.

i use awstats and axs im pretty happy with both but i still need a program to log uniques per day.... they dont seem to provide me with that information

Hostony provides web alizer, awstats and raw logs so I will use them when I switch games2go over to them when my 14gb remaining bandwidth runs out (In early February I expect)...

I had my largest visitor numbers yesterday - 547, yet my page views are only just double that, while before when I had 300 visitors (as is usual) I got about 2500 page views...

Check out where your visitors are coming from. Say if they typed a game name in google and found your site, chances are they'll only stop on that page. If you get me.

Google prodvides about 0.5% of my traffic... And it did yesterday...

Murmurs is the biggest provider with 2%

40% of my traffic is from direct request...
