Ran weekly and posted on the Members Only
page. User sessions in December jumped an astounding 43% over November
figures to 26,887 and web page views an even greater 56% to at 97,189.
The only explanation I can arrive at is the "fixing" of our
problems with the www.waynet.wayne.in.us
domain. This URL is used extensively by other web sites and is the
bookmarked URL by many long-time users.
4th Quarter 2001
- Quarterly figures for user sessions and page views declined by 1%
for the first time since we began tracking. This is attributable to
the reduced figures in October when we lost several days of our logs and
the reduced numbers in November for the .in.us domain problem. 4th Quarter '01 usage increased
25% over 4th Quarter
2001 Yearly Figures
show an outstanding 260,875 users requesting 930,554 pages as
compared to 204,689 users requesting 667,511 pages in 2000. This is
a 27% increase in users and a 39% increase in page views over 2000. Our
actual figures were somewhat larger than this due to the problems involved
when the web site was moved to the new server due to the virus problem and
we lost access to the log files for the web site. Logs were
reset approximately October 10.
