December web stats for SouthSideBusiness.com

Happy New Year all! December 2012 was second, all-time, in unique visitors at 1,608, and second in pageviews at 18,096.  Total visits came in at 6,637, third best ever. October 2012 still holds the records in all three categories.

Year over year, traffic in all categories has more than doubled compared to December 2011.

*Explanation of terms. A unique visitor is an IP address. It's not quite a unique person as people sharing a home or office network, in most cases, would be reflected as a single unique user. A visit is someone coming on site, whether they visit one page or ten, then exiting the site (that's one visit). A pageview is just what it sounds like, the number of pages within the site that were viewed. Robots and Spiders used by search engines to catalog sites, are not included in these numbers. I'm not emphasizing "hits" because it's not a useful number. A single visit to one page of a website can generate a dozen or more hits. But for the record, this month we got over 169,000 hits. Stats from AllWeb stats.
