Log Analysis (as of May 2, 2008)
These figures were created by the AWStats program offered online by our web host. 

Monthly figures are now being posted on the Top Twenty page.  Current average is 63,112  user sessions per month.  Web page views are averaging 155,489.   Users sessions increased 38% in April, which I would attribute to additional visitors to the Levi Coffin page and also to the change of a setting on our server to redirect those "stealing" our bandwidth by using a direct link to our photos to our page with our photo policy.  Page views increased by 21% April. 

1st Quarter 2008 - Quarterly figures for user sessions stayed constant from 4th Quarter after the 9% increase from the 3rd Quarter of 2007.  Page views increased by 7% in the first quarter following a 3% increase in the 4th Quarter of 2007.

2007 Yearly Figures show a 2% increase to 668,203 users requesting 1,772,590 pages as compared to 657,784 users requesting 1,693,456 pages in 2006.  This is a 2% increase in users and a 2% increase in page views over 2006
