54,118 Basic Hits = 10,763 Page Views

So, to summarize what I eventually said in today's earlier message about using page views rather than basic hits to measure traffic to a web site:

After we added our Blog in late March, ShyCloud.com jumped from a total of 1,680 page views in December, for an average of only 54 a day, to 10,763 page views in April, for an average of 358 per day! That was equal to 54,118 basic hits, a statistic we won't mention here again. From now on, we'll use page views, not basic hits, for our measurements, in honor of one our favorite webgoddesses, DanaMite of TotalEscape.com.
