Unique Clicks Explained
(Click here to return to where you were.)

Unique clicks are based on daily traffic. The determination as to whether or not a click is unique is based on the IP address of the visitor clicking on your links.

Each unique IP address is kept in a database. Each time a new click goes through the LinkCounter system, the IP address is checked against the other IP addresses in the database. If the IP address exists, it is not considered a unique click.

The database is cleared out each evening. Therefore, any clicks from the same IP address on the following day will be considered to be new clicks, not unique.

Some service providers, like AOL™, use dynamic IP address that may change several times during a single dial-up session. Because of this, it may be possible for a single visitors clicks to track as new due to their changing IP address.
