Just curious what the ratio is here as mine seems OUT OF CONTROL. My wedding website has been active since October. A third of our invitees received Save the Dates in January, and invites went out this month.
I have 461 views on my website and there are only 145 people invited. This boggles my mind. People are either really digging it, really nosey, or just plain bored.
So I’m 461:145.
What’s your ratio?

Mine is crazy! I invited 125 people and have 2569 page views. These are page views and not how many guests have been to the site, so it makes sense for the number to be somewhat high. This also includes all the times I looked at my own site to make sure there were no typos and to make edits.

Only my fiance and I know about our wedding website (it’s password protected and we haven’t sent the link to anyone yet) and we have a tons of “page views.” I realized that the website counted every single page as one view – so if I look at the main page, that’s 1 view, then I click on the “hotel” page, that’s view two, etc. I can see how views can add up quickly when every single click is practically a new view!

We invited 75 and have 500ish–our counter counts each time the home page is loaded and doesn’t install cookies to discern the difference between a new user and a regular user. I’m sure I’m 100 of them just from setting up the site.

I just checked ours….over 900 views to 90 people invited. We have been married for over 4 months though and changed our site to a travel site.
What is really interesting though is that the main page has 3 times the amount of views versus the other pages…journal, videos, and a “what’s new” page. I think some of our family doesn’t know the other tabs are there.

Some websites count every view, including your own. So everytime you go on your site when you arent logged in, it counts your views as well.

I think that vendors touch your site, as far as I know anyway. ANYone can view it so I wouldn’t pay attention to the number.

Mine was like that… And I realized it counted every single page… and every time I edited, etc… So, before it was even public… we had TONS of views… So, 1 guest could view every page and it would add like 8 views… Every refresh adds a view too
