What are pageviews?
A page view is an instance of a page loaded in a browser. A pageview is a metric defined as the total number of pages viewed. Repeated views of a single page are counted. It could be confused along with sessions.
Here are a few other definitions :
- Sessions: A single session is a period of activity completed by a user. Google Analytics records a new session every time someone visits your website.
- Users: A single user is an individual who visits a webpage or a website. Every new user gets a unique ID that’s stored in their browser cookie, which lets Google track and identifies their sessions.
The number of unique pageviews is pageviews that are generated by the same user during the same session. A unique pageview represents the number of sessions during which that page was viewed one or more times.
