LRA: Stats for the 1st week of Jan

Posted by gazjjohnson on 13 January, 2009

Just had my first Google Analytics report on the LRA. In the past week there have been 1,328 unique visitors taking in 5,136 page views.

  • 75% of people arrived there via external search engines
  • 20% via a link from another site
  • 5% came to the site directly from a bookmark

This could indicate we could drive more traffic to the site if the LRA was more prominent elsewhere across the domain.  On the other hand it looks like all Keith’s efforts in ensuring we were registered in the various aggrigators and search services over the past few years is paying off well; most literature suggests that visitors to repositories seldom use the homepage of the site to access individual articles.

Top 5 countries using the site

  1. UK
  2. USA
  3. Germany
  4. Singapore
  5. Canada
