Relationship of visits to page views


I’m new to Piwik and have been tracking metrics on several Intranet sites for a few months now.

My basic question is this - should each visit generate at least one page view?

The reason I ask is that I’m reviewing some site metrics for a one month period (June 2014):

Unique visitors: 200
Page Views: 575
Visits: 1,171

It seems like the number of page views should be higher - or am I missing something??


Have a look in Visitors>Overview -> you should see there what types of actions are being tracked, what are you seeing?
