AOL and Unique Visitors

About 90% of the traffic to my website is coming from AOL. Webtrends logs each of AOL's cache servers as a unique visitor (ie. cache-dm06.proxy.aol.com). I'm suspicious that this is messing up my stats because multiple users can access the same cache. Is this the case? Any way to figure out uniques from AOL?

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Welcome to the forums Elbows (nice nick).

Use a counter that has a dynamic extension on it or a NOCACHE http header line. Most often, those will come with the better counters. A javascript counter with a random url string can also help. That can get kind of technical.

There is more info on AOL's caching at [webmaster.aol.com...]
