Also, be careful about clicking on websites that referred traffic. I got a ton of spammers pinging my site. The have domain names that are spammy like "fix seo" "get more traffic"

The good referral traffic like Facebook, m.facebook or any other marketing you do can help determine where the traffic is coming from

A session is a group of interactions that take place on your website within a given time frame. For example a single session can contain multiple screen or page views, events, social interactions, and ecommerce transactions.

A single user can open multiple sessions. Those sessions can occur on the same day, or over several days, weeks, or months. As soon as one session ends, there is then an opportunity to start a new session. There are two methods by which a session ends:

Time-based expiration (including end of day):
  • After 30 minutes of inactivity
  • At midnight
Campaign change:
  • If a user arrives via one campaign, leaves, and then comes back via a different campaign.

Users replaced Unique Visits. I can be 1 user but count for multiple sessions.
