This is a 15% increase over the previous Quarter.

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

The 531 articles either printed out or downloaded, compared to the 21,501 total visitors represent 2.5%. Put another way, the ratio of articles printed/downloaded to the number of visits is: 1 : 40

12) TOTAL NUMBER OF DIFFERENT ARTICLES VIEWED

At the end of this Quarter there were over 360 different articles on the website for visitors to read and to print/download. Of those 360 articles, during this period visitors viewed more than 350.

13) MAIN BROWSERS USED BY VISITORS

#1 = CHROME                                 used by 51.4% of visitors

#2 = SAFARI                                                 30.0% of visitors

#3 = FIREFOX                                                4.5% of visitors

#4 = INTERNET EXPLORER                         3.4% of visitors

#5 = SAMSUNG INTERNET                           3.2% of visitors

#6 = EDGE                                                      2.8% of visitors

#7 = OPERA MINI + OPERA                           2.5% of visitors

#8 = MISC. OTHER BROWSERS                    2.2% of visitors

Chrome and Safari are the two main browsers used by visitors to this website. The use of Internet Explorer is definitely in the decline by visitors to my website. Out of every 30 users, 29 used a browser other than Internet Explorer. The use of Firefox is likewise in decline amongst visitors to this website.

14) ACQUISITION, HOW VISITORS CAME TO THE WEBSITE

Organic Search = 18,055                      = 84.0%

Direct Visits = 3,075                            = 14.3%

Social Media = 228                               = 1.0%

Referrals = 143                                     = 0.7%

(For an explanation of these 4 terms see the "My Goals for the Website" page.)

5 out of every 6 visitors came as a result of specific searches they had executed in their browser. Less than 1 out of every 50 visitors came from social media or by way of a referral. 49 out of every 50 visitors came because they either performed a specific search for information, or they already knew my website address. This is a very desirable ratio for me, because it indicates that website visitors are looking for specific information, rather than accidently landing on my website.

With my website I have deliberately avoided a focus on either social media or on referrals. People from those sources are very welcome, but they constitute an unplanned component of visitors. The primary focus of my website is on people who "ask ... seek ... knock ...", people who are looking for very specific answers.

Where for this quarter overall visitor numbers increased over the previous quarter from 18,828 to 21,501, the total for social media plus referrals decreased from 477 to 371, a 22% decrease. I view the decreasing numbers in this category as a positive trend, and I hope it continues, while at the same time direct visits and visits resulting from organic searches continue to increase.

ASSESSING THIS REPORT

I draw the following conclusions from this report:

1) The 21,501 visitors came from 164 different countries, representing 4,330 different cities or towns around the world. This includes visitors from every continent and most island nations. On average, there is 1 new town represented for every 5 visitors. This shows a wide spread for visitors.

2) Around 66% of all visitors live in the U.S.A. (i.e. 14,276). Those visitors are spread around in 3,212 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 4.4 visitors from the U.S.A.

3) As in previous quarters, over 95% of all articles (i.e. 350+ out of 360+) were accessed during this three-months period.

4) The 21,501 visitors either printed out or downloaded 531 articles. This represents 1 article downloaded or printed out for every 40 visitors.

5) 81% of all visitors used either Chrome or Safari as their browser of choice. No other browser contributed 5% or more to the visitor numbers.

6) 84% of the total number of visitors were new visitors, and 16% were returning visits. New visitor numbers are clearly on the increase.
