I have a freeware hosted on my website, and use webalizer to track the traffic. I can get the data of my installation file from webalizer in section "Top 10 of 583 Total URLs By KBytes" (till Jan. 23):
- Hits: 21753 (6.45%)
- KBytes: 40150088 (91.27%)
The size of installation file is 6564989 bytes, suppose it's 6565 Kbytes. Then the total downloads can be simply calculated as:
40150088 / 6565 = 6115, convert to weekly downloads will be 6115 / 23 (till Jan. 23) * 7 (days/week) = 1861.
Now comes with my questions:
- Is the total downloads 6115 accurate here?
- What does the 21753 Hits mean? 2/3 of the hits failed or people using multi-thread download tools?
