Website continues to be a success

The SGA uses this website to inform its members about activities of the Society and to provide information about archaeology in Georgia to members and the interested public. In 2102, the website received just over 50,000 visits and just over 101,000 pageviews by over 42,000 unique visitors. That averages to 116 unique visitors every day, making this outreach effort quite successful. This website, like all SGA’s outreach endeavors, are supported by volunteers. Get your story idea ready to email to our new online editor, Ben Steere. Join the SGA! Make a donation to support the SGA!

2011: January and February observations on thesga.org

The SGA’s website continues to be popular in the opening months of 2011. In the full story, we examine statistics for average daily pageviews and unique visitor counts. We also look at “visitor loyalty,” which assesses how many times a single visitor (which actually may be multiple people, such are the complexities of internet head-counts!) visits our website over a given period. We see increases in visitor loyalty from January to February 2011.
