Unique Visitors vs Visits

I decided to not bother with my WordPress stats for the moment as I am unable to access it and I loathe and suck at figuring out tech code stuff. Maybe it will teach me to be less obsessed with stats and measurements. But perhaps not.

I still have my unique visitor counter on and I guess it’s working.  Currently it shows this:

Unique Visitors since mid Feb 2011: 886, 754 (about 580 people per day?)

Unique visitors refers to the number of distinct individuals, regardless of how often they visit. I guess I could look at this as totally new customers who walk into a store.

Visits refers to the number of times a site is visited. Equivalent to hits or views? It could be the same person visiting over and over and thus generating more views. I’ll look at this as loyal customers who keep visiting your store? Hope I got the concepts right. I have more than double visits compared to unique visitors.
