Definitions:

Visits: A visit is defined as a series of page requests from the same uniquely identified visitor with a time of no more than 30 minutes between each page request.

Page views: A page view is a count of how many times a page has been viewed on a website or the chosen group within the chosen period of time. All page views are counted no matter how many times a user has visited the website in the chosen period of time.

Unique visits: The total number of unique visitors during the selected period. Cookies are specific to browser and device which means that if a visitor is visiting your website using a different browser or device than before, or has deleted or never accepted the cookie, then that person will be seen as a new unique visitor even if that is not the case.

Returning visitors: A returning visitor is a user that has visited your website and is now returning. Please, treat this metric with caution and look at trending rather than absolute values. Cookies are specific to browser and device which means that if a returning visitor is using a different browser or device, or has deleted or never accepted the cookie, then they will be seen as a new visitor even if that is not the case.
