Is there a way to estimate the number of unique monthly visitors to a site based on a sample of, say, one week of data? This isn’t as simple as just multiplying the number of unique visitors the first week by 4, due to the hotel problem. If 10 people visit your site the first week and the same people are the only visitors to your site the second, third, and fourth week, the total number of monthly unique visitors to your site is only 10.
I know you can use HLL to estimate the number of unique visitors to a site in O(1) space. I’m wondering if there’s a similar approach to estimate how many unique visitors there will be after a month.
