Splash Page Analytics measures the page visits and activity on the hosted splash pages. It’s like Google Analytics on your splash pages. These are statistics of your visitors behaviour BEFORE they log in to your hotspot (except for the success page which is displayed after they logged in).

How is a ‘unique visitor’ counted?

The number of unduplicated visitors coming to your splash pages. Every user is only counted once, even if he visits the splash pages multiple times a day.

Unique visitors are determined using first party cookies stored in your visitor browser. When a same person visits your splash pages on two different devices (for example their laptop and on their mobile phone) then it will detect two unique visitors.

If the visitor’s browser does not accept the analytics cookie (if they have disabled, blocked or deleted cookies), a simple rule of thumb is used to try to match the visitor to a previous visitor with the same features (IP, resolution, browser, plugins, OS, etc).

Note that by default, unique visitors are available for days, weeks and months periods, but unique visits are not processed for the “year” period for performance reasons.

How is a ‘visit’ defined?

If a visitor comes to your splash pages for the first time, or if he visits a page more than 30 minutes after his last page view, this will be recorded as a new visit. A Unique Visitor can make multiple Visits per day. In the first visit, the visitor is a New Visitor. From the second visit (the same day or later), a Unique Visitor is a Returning Visitor.
