Site Stats Showing Visitors or Impressions?

In the last month, a relatively minor link that I put up has turned out to be my number two producer of traffic (after google, before msn).

Heres the question. Are these really unique visitors? Or could it be that my stats program (livestats.xsp) is reporting each time their page with my graphic on it (which is pulled from my site) is viewed?

Heres how they show it on their site (ie pulled realtime from mine)...


Heres the data - sort-of - from my reporting program.

Anybody know?
