    People are always saying, how many hits are you getting, from this report what would be considered the number of hits? I also assume this would be somewhat wrong because this is a frames site. Thanks

    I think most laymen think of hits as how many times people are looking at the site. Most websites, if they're trying to look good, count hits as how many files are accessed. In your case that would be 5629. This includes all files, .html, .jpg, .wav - whatever. This report does tell you how many html files were accessed - 2685. However if you're using frames you have at least two html pages and up to however many frames you have per page. So you'll have to do some calculations to really get to how many people are visiting your site. I think page views are the most useful figure to have - but how to get at that number is the true question.

    You also have a figure called unique hosts - 314. This could well give you how many unique visitors you've had but wouldn't tell you how often they've stopped in.

    I believe there are several sources for web reporting that give you better detail - not sure of them yet as I've just started looking into this but I think Web Trends is the name of one of them.

    Good luck
