Log Analysis for April.
Ran weekly and posted on the Members Only page.  Monthly user sessions remained stable from March 2001.  Page views increased by 7%.  The stability is a good thing, especially considering the great weather we had in April.  Our hits/users usually go down as the weather improves and people spend less time inside on their computers. The "user" is our more important number, indicating number of people rather than the number of "hits".  The user sessions increased by 43% and the page views by 39% over April of 2000.

1st Quarter 2001 - Quarterly figures for user sessions rose 6% from 4th Quarter '00 levels.  1st Quarter '01 usage increased 50% over 1st Quarter '00. 

2000 Yearly Figures show an outstanding 204,689 users requesting 667,511 pages as compared to 100,426 users requesting 310,586 pages in 1999.  This is a 101% increase in users and a 111% increase in page views over 1999.
