Our customers are all avid consumers of lifestyle brands from the iPod through to soft drinks, music festivals as well as other aspirational products and services. Utilizing extensive traffic via the FashionCapital.co.uk website can benefit your business by hitting your relevant target market.

To understand the concept of online advertising, we must first know the definitions for:

Unique User

Unique users are used to measure the popularity of websites and are logged as one per IP address. If the visitor wishes to return to the site, only the first visit will contribute to the unique user count. For example, if multiple computers are linked into one network and share the same IP address and all visit the website, this will only count as one unique user, no matter how many times each of them revisit. Therefore unique user can be defined as an individual visitor to a website who is counted as a single visitor (one per IP address) irrespective of the number of times they visit the site.



The number of return visits will all be tallied under this category irrespective of IP address and irrespective of previous visits. Each session per individual will count for a separate visit and if more than one visitor uses the same router, each individual session per computer will all be counted as individual visits.



This again is a tally, and counts the total number of pages visited. Every time the server displays a new page, a new page impression is created. However if a visitor returns to the same page more than once within one session, and the page hasn’t been modified, only one page impression will be counted.


Buying Page Impressions

Each page impression is counted by a unique user viewing the page in which the advert resides. Each time a user clicks on a page in which your advert is located; a page impression will be deducted from the total page impressions bought for your advert. We offer your advert to feature in a variety of formats and in a variety of locations depending on the colour of your advert.



This term is most frequently used to distinguish the popularity of the site as this tally generates the largest figures. Every single time any individual from any network, whether one or five hundred computers are using the same IP address and router, each and every page that is viewed creates a hit. The individual can revisit the same page within the same session and hits will be counted respectively.



You may have noticed “cookies” around your computer and these basically identify different sessions and passwords. Idle time between each session must be set internally by each server to differentiate between sessions, e.g. FashionCapital.co.uk work to a two and a half hour slot, so to distinguish the second session, there must be a two and a half hour gap for two separate sessions to be counted.


In regards to advertising on www.fashioncapital.co.uk there are numerous options available to satisfy companies advertising needs, which are:


Weekly Newsletter Distribution

Every Wednesday, FashionCapital.co.uk registered users receive a newswire. There are over 80,000 subscribed users, and this figure is increasing exponentially. This form of advertising is a fantastic opportunity to reach out to every individuals email address linked to these users, for your advert to land directly in their inbox.
