What are page views?

This article explains how we define and measure pageviews for billing.

What are pageviews?

A pageview is a visit to a page on your website. Each time a page loads on your site with the Continually embed code installed, we count it as a pageview.

A visitor can visit any number of pages during a browsing session, and these will be automatically tracked using the Continually embed code so long as it is installed on every page.

If a user navigates to a different page and then reloads the original page, this will count as another page view unless the page is loaded from the browser cache.

Why do you measure pageviews for billing?

We price based on pageviews because we believe it is a simple, fair way to offer pricing that corresponds to the value Continually delivers. It lets us offer more affordable pricing to customers with smaller audiences. 

By billing using pageviews, we are able to a generous free plan and to give access to our premium features to as many customers as possible.

Are page views counted even if the visitor doesn’t click the chatbot?

Yes, we count every page view when the script is included whether or not someone clicks the message.

How many pageviews will I need?

For most websites, 50,000 page views is more than enough. Check Google Analytics to see how much traffic you've been serving and contact us at  help@continual.ly if you are reaching a bigger audience.

What happens if I reach my page view limit?

When you reach your page view limit we’ll stop serving up bots the next business day. You can check your plan usage at any time from your dashboard and you’ll get an email notification to let you know if you’re approaching your plan limit.

There are no overage charges.
