I really don’t understand blog statistics - and the more confusing it gets, the more I become fixated by them!

No two sites seem to measure them the same way - or if they do then they end up with different answers in any case.  Why is it so difficult to measure how many people actually visit a certain webpage within a given timeframe?

It’s not exactly imperative that I know, and I didn’t start this blog in the hope that millions of people would hang on my every word but it’s nice to know you aren’t here just talking to yourself!

Somebody, somewhere please put down some guidelines on what constitutes a real bona fide hit to a webpage so we can find a stats method which allows a level playing field for everyone.

It would certainly cut down on a lot of confusion for people like me!
