Hits: A hit measures the number of requests for text, images, and files that your Web server receives for a given page. The number of hits a site receives depends on how it’s organized, not how visitors interact with it, this metric is useful only in evaluating information such your server load.
Click Paths: Also called click tracks, or click trees, these are graphical representations of typical journeys through a site.
Page Views: The number of times any page was viewed by any visitor. This is often divided by visits to give a page-views-per-visit figure that represents the average number of pages each visitor viewed on a single trip to your site.
Top Entry and Exit Pages: These are the pages where most people enter the site (and don’t assume it’s the home page) and where most people leave it.
Visits: The most useful unit of measurement in site analytics is the number of visitors to a particular site or page. The trend in the overall number of visits to your site over time can give insight into site’s popularity.
Unique Visitors: This is the number of site visits by different users. If two people visit the site three times each, you’d have six visits but two unique visitors.
