For any referer item in the list the following fields are available:

Visited URL Text Absolute URL visited by users (e.g. http://www.yoursite.com/trackme.html).
Referer URL Text Absolute URL of the referer site where the user comes from (e.g. http://www.myfriend.com/linktome.html).

Hits Integer Number of times the referer URL was detected for the visited URL in site’s visits.
