    Unique visitors in WordPress.com statistics … and almost in JetPack • WordPress Help

    You just left, and I'm sure you have not missed it if you use JetPack, a new functionality of WordPress.com statistics: unique user view .

    So far, WordPress.com statistics (and those of Jetpack, which are the same) only showed visitors that is, that if someone visits your website and sees 3 pages, they count 3 visits, which is also called " pageviews " or even " impressions ".

    The incorporated novelty also shows the statistic in unique visitors that is, that the previous visitor would only count a single visit, even if he saw 10 pages of your website.

     jetpack statistics notice with unique users

    Is it better, is it worse ?, it is different . The unique user shows a degree of loyalty of your site, although it has its snag, because there are times when many different users, but using the same IP (universities for example) will only be shown as a single user. On the other hand, the page views, do not really say how many " people " have visited your site, but how many pages of your website have caused interest in visitors.

    Personally I usually look more at the pages views, and specifically in the pages viewed by user, because it indicates the degree of loyalty and " link building " internal to your site, or in other words, the degree of interest you have generated in the visitors to see more pages from the one they came from search engines, shared links or whatever.

    But, well, all statistics are good, and the more the better the more information you get for optimize your website, so welcome is the new feature.

    The system is not as powerful as Google Analytics, nor does it offer a new listing, simply when you hover your mouse over the bar of the visitor's chart. day shows a more detailed notification, where we will see, in addition to the page views, unique users and pages per user which I mentioned before. It's not perfect but it's pretty good.

    Here you can see the difference of the same day seen on JetPack and WordPress.com :
