Below, the term request refers to an attempt by a visitor to request access to a file from your site. Different kinds of files include: pages on your site, images on a page, etc.
Your site stats report contains the following information:
- Basically, how many different people visited your site. The number can be a little deceiving though, as customers of some large ISPs (e.g. AOL), go through a proxy server. As a result, a large number of visitors may be represented as a small number of distinct hosts.
- The number of times someone succeeded in accessing any file at your site.
- The number of times someone succeeded in accessing a "page" file at your site (files ending in .html, .htm, .php, .cgi, etc.).
- The number of times someone attempted to access a file from your site, but for whatever reason, was unsuccessful.
- The number of times a visitor attempted to access a particular file, but was redirected to a different one by the server. Two main reasons this happens are: (1) the visitor has incorrectly requested a directory name without the following slash: eg; a request for www.yourdomain.com/yourdirectory (the incorrect name) returns www.yourdomain.com/yourdirectory/ (the correct name); (2) "Click-thru" banner ads can also cause a request to be redirected.
- How many files (pages, pictures, programs, etc.) were requested from your site.
- A breakdown of the number of visitors to your site, by top-level domain—that is, how many visitors you had whose own URLs ended in .org, .gov, .com, .net, and so on.
- A list of which domains (usually organized by country) made requests to your site. This report is also sometimes spelled using the british variation "organization."
- A breakdown of traffic your site received, organized by directory.
- The number of times each file type (ie; image, page, etc.) was requested from your site.
- The number of times a file within a certain size range (ie 1-10 MB) was accessed. A good way of tracking bandwidth use.
- The number of times a request returned a given status code (successful, not found, denied, etc.)
- A list of files from your site that were downloaded by visitors 20 times or more, sorted by the most downloaded.
- A list of files that were requested, but not successfully transferred. Sorted by the number of failed requests.
- A list of the last URL where each visitor was before coming to your site. Sorted by number of requests.
- A list of browsers your visitors used (ie; Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.). Sorted by number of requests.
- A list of operating systems used by people visiting your site (ie; Windows, Linux, NT, etc.) Sorted by number of requests.
