The hit count typically is higher than the number of visitors because of multiple visits.

Does your ISP give you the number of unique domain addresses accessing the page? This is what I use to track popularity as a given visitor may hit the page a number of times. It unfortunately obscures a number of different visitors using the same proxy address as one which hides numerous visitors from the same company or location or ISP using a proxy, so is *lower* than a true count.

For example, 5784 unique domain addresses have taken the time to download the free preview of our book (using 17316 hits) from April 1999 to April 2000.
