Just to provide more backing to Better Know a Web Metric : the Page View, here is a story I just found on Digg.
Remember when web site traffic was talked about in terms of « hits »? You’d read about how many millions of hits Netscape got per month and other sites bragged about getting 30,000 hits a day.
My comment on this story:
RSS and Ajax are two tools that work great together when it comes to publishing content. They still need a receptacle in the form of a document…
With RSS and Ajax, you essentially track clicks and site interaction, which means taking a measure of your site’s usability instead of an in-depth traffic analysis.
