Hi everybody.
On the site traffic page (yola silver) - where it shows the graph with the number of visitors etc.:
Does the number of visitors include search engines etc. or can I assume these are actual people looking at the site?
What does unique visitors change mean?

Visitor change is the amount of new IP your site sees.
That number does include crawlers and spiders to the bets of my knowledge. Their won't generate much traffic though.

Hello Justin,

A unique visitor is someone who has visited your web page that hasn't been to your page yet in the time period referenced in the analytic. If they visit your page 5 times (visit, leave, come back again, leave, come back..), they would only be counted as a unique visitor once.

A change in unique visitor would be the % change from the previous time period in the analytic time frame.
