What is Page View (PV)?

Pageviews is the total number of pages viewed when it is displayed. In this case, repeated views of a single page will also be counted. For example, if a visitor accesses one page of your website, it is said to be one pageview. And when a visitor opens, for example, 5 articles or 5 website pages, it is 5 pageviews but the visitor remains 1. In short, the page viewed by the visitor. That is why the number of pageviews on the website is greater than the number of visitors.

The greater the number of pageviews you have, the greater the visitor’s interest in the content. That means it’s good for the development of your website.

Pageviews are one of the most common KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) that marketers use to know exactly how many times a particular website page has been viewed.
