    Hi,

    A page view is a visit to a page on yourwebsite. If the visitor reloads a page, this counts as an additional page view. If the user navigates to a different page and then returns to the original page, this will count as another page view. A visit is defined as a sequence of consecutive page views without a 30-minute break. A visit always contains one or more page views.

    Pageview can considered as multiple views from the same site page while visit is an action of the user engaging the website whether if it is a new or old visits.

    Here are difference between A pae view and visit.

    Visit - A visit is a session of continuous activity where all hits are recorded in the log file for one visitor to a web site. The visit starts the moment of the first hit on the web site and continues until the session ends through inactivity.

    Page View - When a user goes to a certain website he usually loads a single page to view at a certain point. the page counts one impression which means that is has been viewed once. It called Page view.

    if someone visits my website pay stubs online for the first time,
    in analytics visit will be +1 for that user and one user can view multiple pages so page views can be greater than page visits.

    These are two of the most important metrics all bloggers should be aware of in order to track the success of their sites. Here’s what the difference is between them:
    • Visitors: These are individual (unique) people that come and visit your blog. This is useful metric for you to know how many people have visited your site.
    • Views: Each visitor (person) can view more than one post on your blog so each visit can accumulate multiple views. This metric is useful because it tells you how interesting or useful your visitors found your site and your content. If each and every visitor leaves without checking out an additional page it is normally a sign that the content wasn’t useful or wasn’t relevant or that there’s something wrong with your design so it’s not possible for visitors to discover other posts on your blog.

    A visit is unique and by a person and thus giving one visit for one person but page view can be multiple by one visitor, for instance 5 visitors can give 50 page views.
