|Interpreting Server Stats|
Understanding referrer sessions
A client wants a "simple english" explanation of what the following lines in their stats file actually mean.
1) Total search engine referred sessions
2) Total referred sessions
3) Total blind (no referrer) sessions
Can anyone translate this into simple words without technobabble? The help files for the stats software are not exactly overflowing with helpful information.
search engine referred sessions - when someone came to your site by clicking a link from a search engine session.
total referred sessions - total number of sessions that can be traced back to a link somewhere whether it be a search engine or a link on another site etc.
blind sessions - visitors that came from 'nowhere' usually it means the visitor has come from bookmarking your site or a link in an email or if the visitor simply typed the url into the browser.
hope that helps ;)
Sure does.... many thanks
