Many Digital Project Visits in 2012

We’re currently planning a revamp of  the Sonoma Co. Library website to create a new “Digital Branch”.  In the process, I’ve had the opportunity to look at the numbers of hits for the various pieces of our website, including the digital projects. I’m pleased to see that the Heritage Collections as a whole got a whopping 111,267 hits over the past year — and if adjusted for the fact that we’ve had it live only since late May 2012 — surpassing any other single group. The closest competitor was the library catalog at 121,127 since the beginning of April 2012 (the library home page was the winner, of course, with 1,139,376 views).  Unique visitors to the Heritage Collection(according to Google Analytics)  is a bit lower, with a little over 13,000.

  • The Local History & Genealogy blog got 5,609 (again, this represents only the portion of the past year that it’s been live)
  • Guide to the Archives had 4,826
  • No statistics yet on the Community project, unfortunately

Not too bad considering the minimal publicity each of these has had. We’re looking doing better on that score with the Digital Branch project.
