Note: Traffic to your Square Online site can sometimes come from spambots, which constantly scan the web for email addresses and information. Since there isn't a way to prevent spambots from scanning a website, spambots scan virtually every website at one time or another. As far as these referrer stats, you are the only person who can see them (i.e. those stats aren't visible to anyone who doesn't have access to your account).

See below for more information on terms and meanings related to this page:

Page Views

The number of pages visitors viewed on a given day. A single visitor may view one or more pages.

Unique Visitors

The number of individual visitors who came to the site. To ensure the most accurate data, unique visits and page views are calculated using a front-end tracking method similar to the one used by Google Analytics. Note that the unique visitors number should be smaller than the page views number since one person may visit multiple pages and generate multiple page views.

Top Active Pages

The pages on your site with the most visits. Your home page is likely to generate the most visits.

Search Terms

This shows which search terms visitors have entered in Google, Bing and Yahoo to find your site. The more search terms you see, the better ranked your site likely is in on the search engines.

Referring Sites

If a visitor clicked a link on another website to reach your site then they have been “referred” to your website by this other site. The more inbound links you have pointing to your site, the better your search rank will likely end up being.
