When comparing web page statistics across campus, the Libraries home page consistently scores in the top three. The university home page, registration pages and the College of Liberal Arts home page often land in the top three rankings as well. Snapshots of pages viewed in Spring, Summer, and Fall 2011 are below.
When analyzing the statistics, we see the Libraries home page not only receives a high number of page views, but also has a high count of unique views, which indicates that page views are often not from the same users. The time spent on the home page is two minutes, suggesting that viewers are scanning the page and not just clicking through. Because of the high usage the Libraries LIBsearch receives, it is not surprising that the Libraries home page is so frequently visited.
A sample of Spring, Summer, and Fall was taken because a complete range of data was not available for the Spring and Fall semesters. In the future, we will compile semester-long snapshots; for now, though, it is clear that judging by partial semesters only, the Libraries home page is among the most visited and most popular on campus!
