i have a table of
-- Table structure for table `visitor_tracking`

DROP TABLE IF EXISTS `visitor_tracking`;
CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `visitor_tracking` (
  `entry_id` int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,
  `visitor_id` int(11) default NULL,
  `ip_address` varchar(15) NOT NULL,
  `page_name` text,
  `query_string` text,
  `timestamp` timestamp NOT NULL default CURRENT_TIMESTAMP,
  PRIMARY KEY  (`entry_id`),
  KEY `visitor_id` (`visitor_id`,`timestamp`)

with data like
INSERT INTO `visitor_tracking` (`entry_id`, `visitor_id`, `ip_address`, `page_name`, `query_string`, `timestamp`) VALUES
(32, 1, '', '/single_event_page.php', 'id=5', '2014-01-10 19:18:18'),
(33, 1, '', '/single_event_page.php', 'id=2', '2014-01-10 19:31:49');
sorry for only 2 entries

i need to get the page views for unique hits so i assume i need to group ips and filter by page_name and query_string as the page name is with the query string.

how do i do i return records for a certain date and for the month?
im not understanding how to use distinct and group correctly in my mysqli select string.

thank you for any code or help you may provide.
