11) RATIO OF TOTAL VISITS TO (PRINTED + DOWNLOADS):

ASSESSING THESE REPORTS

This January to March 2017 Quarterly Report is the very first report I have ever compiled for my website, as data had previously not been available to me. So there are no comparison figures for previous Quarters.

Here are some of the conclusions for this current Quarter.

1) The 4,745 visitors came from 103 different countries, representing 1,493 different cities or towns around the world. On average, there is 1 new town represented for every 3.2 visitors. This shows a wide spread for visitors.

2) While around 60% of all visitors for this Quarter live in the U.S.A. (i.e. 2,848), those visitors are spread around in 1,024 different towns and cities in the U.S.A., spread across all 50 states. On average, there is 1 new town in the U.S.A. represented for every 2.8 visitors from the U.S.A.

3) Over 95% of all articles were accessed during this three months period.

4) The 4,745 visitors either printed out or downloaded 1,740 articles. That represents 1 article printed out or downloaded for every 2.7 visitors. Since most of my articles exceed 20 pages in length (and a number exceed 50 pages in length), it is desirable to have visitors print out or download the articles that are of interest to them, so that they may examine them at their own leisure. This 1:2.7 ratio shows that this is indeed happening very frequently.

5) Almost 70% of all visitors used either Chrome or Safari as their browser of choice. When we include Internet Explorer and Firefox in the group, then that accounts for 85%, or approximately 6 out of 7 of all visitors.

6) 62% of the total number of visitors were new visitors, and 38% were returning visits.
