Why more pageviews in Top Pages than Visitors Per Day?
Hello Support, I am viewing data for 1 complete month, using a segmentation filter, and am curious why the "PageViews" for "Top Pages" is more than "Visitors per Day"? Should not "Visitors" be the higher number?
Update: When I export the segmented report for "Visitors Per Day" via .csv, the numbers for pageviews are different and when summed, they are MUCH closer to the total for "Top Pages". They are infact 5000 views MORE, which is more understandable than being 100k less, like I am seeing in the browser report.
The .csv export report for "Top Pages" matches what I see in the browser report.
No, this is kind of confusing but the summ of UNIQUE visitors to your pages over 1 month cannot be compared with the Sum of Unique Visitors per day.
A visitor is calculated as a unique IP (*) over the period you are looking. So, if there are 100 unique visitors in one day, and 50 unique visitors the next day, but 10 people visited on both days, the total number of unique visitors for this 2 day period is 140 unique visitors, not 150.
Please have look here:
The results for a report exported to a CSV file should exactly match the numbers for that same report in your browser. If that is not the case, you've found a bug, so please let us know the exact settings for the report and whether or not you are using the new UI.
However, you cannot compare numbers from Top Pages with numbers from Visitors Per Day, because Top Pages is limited to the Top 100 or whatever you select, while Visitors per day is always a total of all pageviews.
I just wanted to let everyone know this issue has been fixed in our 3.0.1 update.
Thanks John for all your feedback!
