Attempting to read the stats provided by a web tracker for the first time might be a little bit confusing. Sure a lot of the terms mean exactly what you think they mean, but others will make you thin wha?!

Exit Page: The last page a visitor views.
Geo Tracking: A grouping of stats which tell you the locations from which your visitors hail from.
Hit: A hit is a request made to the server for a file, any type of file. So hit’s aren’t a good way to measure web traffic since one page view can generate like 20 hits.
