Top Platforms - Help Card

Hits - Number of hits by visitors using the specified platform. A hit refers to a single action on the Web server as it appears in the log file. A visitor downloading a single file is logged as a single hit, while a visitor requesting a Web page including two images registers as three hits on the server; one hit is the request for the .html page, and the two additional hits are requests for the downloaded image files. While the volume of hits is an indicator of Web server traffic, it is not an accurate reflection of how many pages are being looked at.

Platform - The specified platform being analyzed. "Platform" refers to the operating system.

Visits - Number of visits by people using the specified platform. If a visitor is idle longer than the idle-time limit, WebTrends assumes the visit was voluntarily terminated. If the visitor continues to browse your site after they reach the idle-time limit, a new visit is counted. The default idle-time limit is thirty minutes. This time limit can be changed by the system administrator.

% - Percentage of hits by visitors using the specified platform.



This information is useful when determining what content to include on your Web site.
