Raw downloads: The total raw number of downloads can indicate how your project is growing but should always be taken with a pinch of salt. The risks include redownloads, whether by bots or by real users, which can skew numbers and be misleading if looked at in isolation.
Scrubbed unique downloads: Scrubbed unique downloads are a slight modification on raw downloads and aim to identify the real number of downloads by looking at how many unique companies or users have downloaded your software.
- # of raw downloads
- # of unique downloads
- # of first time downloaders
- # of unique sources/organizations downloading
Goals:You want to keep growing the number of unique and first time downloaders. The more people downloading you have the more potetial users or conversions later on.
