Referring Countries

This display lists all the country domains (".uk", ".jp", ".fr", etc.) of your referrers.

This report uses the 2-character country code on the URL to determine the country.  Therefore, the United States does not appear prominently in this report due to the fact that U.S. sites generally use .COM, .NET, or .ORG extensions.  You may see a small percentage of U.S. sites listed, because those sites end in .us.

Terms Used on Report:


Also referred to as a 'Unique Visitor'.  By default, this value represents a visitor that comes to your site for the first time in a day.  All subsequest visits during the day by the visitor are not considered unique.

The definition of a visitor can be customized.  You can set a custom period of inactivity that will cause the next access of the visitor to be considered a new visit.  The visit definition screen can be found on the 'Setup' menu.

This differs from a page view or hit in that a single visitor can have one visit per day but many page views during a visit.
