Page views are important for understanding how many impressions the website makes. For example, each time you load a page or refresh the page it counts as a page view.
The unique visitor's metric gives you a sense of the size of your audience and the broad range of new visitors the website receives. The number of unique visitor's counts more as far as SEO or SERPS -- as it shows the number of new users reaching your site on a daily basis, increasing your exposure to a larger audience.
Now you may already have visitor's loyalty that return and engage on your website but the idea is to increase your rang and thats why unique visitors are more important.
