Web Traffic Patterns

June 22nd, 2010 by Erick Beck

In addition to our standard review of website analytics, this month I asked Michael to provide some numbers regarding traffic before graduation and after graduation.  I expected this to then give us the decline in usage that could be attributed to students leaving for the summer.  We did see this on some sites, but a collection of others was actually surprising.

Site Usage Change
Public-centric Sites
www -23%
search -20%
maps -22%
calendar -36%
president -13%
tamunews -37%
visit -6%
Campus-centric Sites
brandguide +24%
marcomm +15%
webaccess +48%
webmaster +10%

A handful of our sites meant for an internal audience showed an increase across the board. So what does this mean? One explanation might be that with the students gone the various departments across campus are focusing on updating their web presence and are therefore looking at our information more often. If that’s the case, and you have any questions or need any help, let us know, we’re here to help.
