The actual total of page views as of 1035 today is 302,328.
I have authored more than 300 articles documenting the struggle to end Race-Based Policing. VoiceofCanada is listed as an external reference on Wikipedia.org under ‘Caledonia Land Dispute,’ and also as a source on the Yahoo! CANADA News ‘In-Depth-First Nations’ feature.
What’s the difference between a ‘hit’ and a ‘page view’?
Technical definition of a hit
Each file sent to a browser by a web server is an individual hit.
Technical definition of a pageview
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), they may see numerous images, graphics, pictures etc. and generate multiple hits.
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 that we measure page views and not hits.
Conclusion: hits are not a reliable way to measure website traffic.
