What is a unique visitor in RTP

A unique visitor refers to an individual that has visited your web page, regardless of how often they visit. For example, when an individual goes to your web page on Tuesday, then again on Wednesday, this is recorded as two visits from one unique visitor.

What is the time zone setting on the Marketo RTP server that is used to count impressions

The server is set to record data in U.S. Central Time (CT), but the time stamps you will see in the UI are based on your local time zone.

Very rarely, a visitor might show up twice if they visited on separate days according to CT but not your time zone.
