Notes to editor

Website Visits are calculated by adding the first, through to the last day of the month on Google Analytics and defined as 'Sessions'. A 'Session' is defined as a group of interactions one user takes within a given time frame on your website. Google Analytics defaults that time frame to 30 minutes. Meaning whatever a user does on your website (e.g. browses pages, downloads resources, purchases products) before they leave equals one session.
