How do "Hits" and "Downloads" differ?

Post by boxcarwilli » Mon Jan 31, 2005 5:32 pm

I have a "Basic" report. Parameter = href. In the report output I get "Hits" and "Downloads". What is the difference? Hits is always the larger number.


Holy crap, I cant believe you guys lost all your forum posts, thats bad.

"Hits" - number of requests. For example if you have test.zip file on
your web site. People may request the file but did not download it.
"Downloads" - is a number of complete ("real") downloads.

Sandy but it's true our hosting provider did not make db backup. So
now we switched to another hosting provider.

Not only switched, I hoped you sued as well.

The referenced help doc page doesnt speak about "downloads".

Great, your comparrision of the two makes sense.
