How to Measure Results through Traffic Analysis
Traffic analysis is an important aspect of managing your promotional efforts. You should know where your visitors are coming from and in what numbers.
The most common traffic log terms you should know include:
Hit: An HTTP request made to your server. The request is not only for the HTML files, but also for the images, movies, and java script or css file which make up each web site page. If you use frames, then one actual page view can result in multiple hits, as the page is made up of multiple files. When log analysis programs read the server log files, they'll report total hits. This total will always be larger than the total page views.
Impression or Visit: A page view. An impression is when someone views one of your HTML pages.
Referrer: A page that links to your site. Looking at your referrers will tell you who's linked to your site. It can be another web site or a search engine.
User Agent: This refers to the software used to access your site. Can be a browser, a client, a PHP script, or a search engine spider.
Counters and Trackers: A counter is a simple script that records the number of visitors to a site and displays the total on the web site.
E-metrics and traffic logs can tell you the number of visitors to your site, and can also break the statistics down by date, time, browser, page viewed, referrer, and more.
SearchWiz Marketing's Webstats tracking software monitors your web site and measures the traffic coming to your pages.

We study the times at which your site receives the most traffic in order to provide you with insights into your audience. We review the pages that visitors use to enter and leave your site, to tell you which portions of your site are the most popular and which sections need improvement. We use traffic logs to help measure the effectiveness of search engine optimization and pay per click (PPC) campaigns.
