Sharepoint can display site usage reports with the pages listed and daily view.
On the left column it shows various files, e.g., .aspx, .html, gif, jpg., pdf, etc.
On the columns to the right shows each day of the month and a number.
Question #1: Are these numbers 'hits' or 'page views' for .aspx and .html files? If you do not know how http requests work then, you may not know the real answer to this question.
Question #2: Does the sharepoint server cache pages and not record a 'hit' if a user visits the same page within a short time and the page has not changed?
Question #3: My research shows that there is a way of accessing site usage data beyond the 30 day limit. See http://blogs.technet.com/b/praveenh/archive/2010/11/02/usage-reporting-in-sharepoint-wss-or-moss.aspx
. Do you know how to access this data using Sharepoint designer or a 3rd party tool?
