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 especially for the first part of 2021 until we launched the new Ask IFAS platform. 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.
