Different ILR routes,
There are two ways to settle in the UK: 3/5-year and 10-year routes. Both routes cannot leave the UK for over 180 days in a single trip and in any 12 months.
The 10-year route has an extra rule of a maximum of 548 travel days limit on top.
180 days in ANY 12 months: what does this actually mean?
Here's an example: 01 Jan 2023 to 01 Jan 2024 is a set of 12 months. Easy. But 2 Jan 2023 to 2 Jan 2024 also counts. And it goes on.
This means there are 365 sets of 12 months every year, and if you travelled for over 180 days at any given overlap, you'll have to restart your counts.
These are just the tip of the iceberg.
This is why we created the ILR Tracker.

"Salmo’s ILR Tracker helped me to realise I should go with 5 year instead of 10 year route; instead of waiting for another year, if I switch route, I could apply immediately.
After following the suggested dates on the tracker, I sent off my application. 5.5 months later, I got my ILR!"
