EPA’s web site views

EPA’s site has 400,000 HTML pages.

Guess how many of them (or what %) were viewed more than 100 times in July?

More on this after a while.

    Like all of our federal governments websites (I deal mostly with HUD)it is so difficult to find anything that if a page is viewed more than once it is because people who get lost find themselves there more frequently.

    Well, I can understand Isleshire’s comment, but I tend to have a different take on the issue. Fed Gov isn’t private sector: we can’t just be popularity driven when it comes to evaluating our web sites. When determining what content goes online and when interpreting our usage statistics, I try to remind folks that we need to be mission-driven.

    Sometimes that means making sure certain information and data are online all the time, even if they aren’t high-visitation pages, so that they are available when stakeholders need or want them. For example, what if a document was only downloaded 5 times in a month, but those 5 downloads were by congressional offices drafting national legislation? Numbers don’t tell the whole story.
