First Time Visitors - Number of visitors who had never visited your Web site before. You must use a persistent and defined cookies to get this information.

Average Visit Length - Average amount of time a visitor spent at your site within the given time frame. Visit lengths in one time frame are not compared with visit lengths in other time frame.

Visitor-Minutes -Total number of minutes your site was viewed by all visitors during the specified time frame.



You can use this information to determine which time intervals are busiest. You may want to watch for increases or decreases in traffic and consider the circumstances that may be causing the change.

Activity Level by Hour of the Day - Help Card

Hits - Number of hits on the specified hour of the day. If the report period is longer than one day, and there are, for example, two instances of the same hour, the value represented includes the combined total of both instances. Unsuccessful hits are not counted. A hit is 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 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.

Hour - Specified hour of the day being tracked.

Visits - Number of visits on the specified hour of the day. If the report period is longer than one day, and there are, for example, two instances of the same hour, the value represented includes the combined total of both instances. Unsuccessful hits are not counted. 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 total hits that occurred on the specified hour of the day.



Hours of less activity should be considered good days for maintenance and content improvement.

Average Time to Serve Documents - Help Card

Average Time to Serve - Average amount of time it took to serve each document during the specified time interval. The time to serve spans from the time your server gets a page request until it transmits all the data.

Pages Served - Number of documents served to visitors during the specified time interval.

Time Interval - A one-year report displays monthly time increments. A one-month report displays daily time increments. And a daily report displays hourly time increments.



Consider increasing your available bandwidth if the times to serve spike at rates disproportionate to the number of documents served during the same time interval. If you see this problem and have enough bandwidth, your server power may be a factor.
