Difference Between Unique & New Visitors

I have been baffled by this for some time now and I have to find out what the difference is between the two. I have always thought that Unique Visitors ARE New Visitors. lol So please clarify the difference between the two. Thanks!

New visitor is someone who has visited your site for the first time.

Unique visitors are determined on a daily basis - how many unique people visited your site on a given day, no matter if they've been there before or not.

Thanks! It would be nice if you could've answered my question quicker than nearly 2 weeks. Especially since I am paying for your service. So far I am not impressed with your forum support.

Well it's hard to keep up with the forums sometimes. If you need a quick answer, send an email and in almost all cases you'll have an answer in less than 24 hours.

Thanks for your response. I'll be sure to do that next time. Thanks!

I have a follow up question to this one -- the Unique visitors -- if they are a group of uniques that visit daily, what does that number mean when I'm pulling reports that span a week's time?
