* Unique visitors are the number of IP addresses that have visited a website at least once during a given month. That means that if everybody at the City of Abbotsford visits Abbotsford Today once a day every month, it is still only recorded as one unique visitor from one unique IP address. That’s seven percent of the population of Abbotsford that checks us out at least once a month (and we think the folks at town hall check us out more than that).
