The map shows individual visits to the web site shown at the top of the page, clustered within a given distance.
The location of each visit is based on the IP address of the computer used, one IP address per visitor per 24-hour period. No personally identifiable information is ever obtained or stored in order to place a 'dot on the map' [see Privacy statement].
Update frequency: The statistics for counting and the map udpates happen at different times. Counting is updated every 24 hours. Map updates can be set by the map owner to happen daily, weekly, or monthly. In addition, in order for your map to be updated (whether daily, weekly, or monthly) the number of visitors shown must also have grown by a certain percentage since the last update. The required percentage may have changed recently, as explained in our FAQ about update frequency.
Our counters have proven to be extremely accurate and reliable over several years, but different counters work differently (e.g. some count hits rather than visits, and some count multiple pages or define a 'visit' differently). Total/subtotal discrepancies may be caused either by IP addresses not currently being in the database or by the gap between counter tallies and map updates.
See FAQ for additional explanations.
