Different platforms count “hits” differently – meaning how it accounts for multiple requests from a single user and how it accounts for bot traffic in the reporting and performance data. The ShareASale platform tracks “unique” hits, where a single user who clicks the same link in a several-hour timespan is counted as 1 hit instead of multiple. In comparison, raw clicks are tracked every time the link is clicked, even if the same user clicks the links multiple times within a short period. Almost all the ShareASale reports will display unique hits unless otherwise noted.
