Support » Plugin: Slimstat Analytics » What is the Unique IPs?

    Hi there,

    I just installed this plugin on 3 of my websites and trying to get some useful statistics info from them. So far so good. The first thing I noticed is there is an “Unique IPs” beside the Pageviews in the Overview page.

    I hovered my cursor to see the explanation and it says Unique IPs is “Used to differentiate between multiple requests to download a file from one internet address (IP) and requests originating from many distinct addresses.”, but I still don’t get it.

    What is it for and how should I see this line? Also there are “previous” versions of both Pageviews and Unique IPs. What are they for? 🙂

    Any input is appreciated.

    Regards,

    Acon

    Hi @acon,

    good question. In short, each visitor is associated to a given IP address, however that same visitor could come back to your website multiple times throughout the day, generating let’s say 10 page views. However, the Unique IP report will still say 1, because all the pageviews are associated to the same IP address. This is useful to understand how many “different visitors” you get within a time range (even though there are other more accurate ways to measure that, these days).

    I hope this helps,
    Jason

    Hi @softfully, when a visitor comes to your website, a timer is associated to him/her to calculate how many pageviews were generated within a SESSION. A session can be 30 minutes from the FIRST pageview or it can 30 minutes FROM the last pageview, based on that setting. I hope this helps.
