* The home page counter has a 24 hour time clock (cookie). This means if a visitor accesses your home page over and over again in a 24 hour block of time (which is typical when browsing around your site), they are only counted 1 time. If the same visitor returns to your home page after 24 hours, the visitor is then counted again 1 time. This 24 hour time clock was put in place to provide a good assessment of the actual number of visitors your site is receiving as opposed to counting every single hit to your home page, which provides a distorted view of actual visitors.

Does this statement refer to Home Page visitors that anyone can visit? Or does this refer to Registered classmates who log on to our specific ClassCreator website? Thank you.

Everyone who visits your home page is counted. The registered classmates who log on are a subset of this number and are accounted for in the graph titled "Classmates accessing site in the last 30 days."

Thanks very much - that's what I thought - preferred to double-check..

Note also that people who respond to a notify email and click a link which takes them directly to a profile, the Message Forum, a private message, or some other page - and then exit by closing their browser and not going to the home page to "Log Out" will NOT be counted in the home page hits count. Home Page Hits is exactly what it says it is.
They WILL be counted on the "Classmates Accessing the Site" graph if they had to log in to get where they were going though.
