EDIS Website summary

This year the EDIS website logged 17.5 million pageviews. 

We currently serve 6,451 publications.

Note on data sources

Document level statistics are based on visits recorded in the web server log file and analyzed using Urchin 7.  Most other UF/IFAS sites use Google Analytics pageviews for reporting. Because Google Analytics uses a script embedded on the website to gather information, it has more robust features and a more complete picture of how visitors are using the website. For EDIS, Google Analytics has not been able to accurately capture PDF downloads or mobile site traffic.  This is not the case for most UF/IFAS web pages, which have a tracking code present on every page to track file downloads, mobile site traffic, and more.
