TECHNICAL DEFINITION OF A PAGEVIEW
(Message by Tanny Keng)
a) A pageview is each time a visitor views a page on your website, regardless of how many hits are generated. Pages are comprised of files. Every image in a page is a separate file. When a visitor looks at a page (a pageview), he or she may see numerous images, graphics, pictures etc. and generate multiple hits.
b) For example, if you have a page with 10 pictures, then a request to a server to view that page generates 11 hits (10 for the pictures, and one for the html file). A page view can contain hundreds of hits. This is the reason why we measure page views and not hits.
