Page Clicks

This may seem like an odd question. Are page views considered clicks? If I wanted to find my impressions and clicks for a month, would they be the same number?

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks!

Hi Katharine,

I'm confused as to what exactly you need. That said, each time a browser loads a page from your site - regardless if it was a refresh that the user initiated or if it was the result of navigating page to page; a pageview occurs. Clicks are, in an of themselves, not measured by default; only the subsequent pageview (if one occurs) is measured.

You can measure clicks that do not result in a pageview (or ones that do to give you more insight as to what was clicked) by using event tracking.
