Log Analysis for November.
Ran weekly and posted on the Members Only page.  Monthly user sessions decreased 4% in November 2000, after an 18% increase in October.  Page views decreased by 3% also.  This is less than the 7% decrease we saw from Oct. 99 to Nov. 99.  November and December we typically experience a slight downturn as people become busy with preparations for the holidays.   The "user" is our more important number.  The user sessions increased by 98% and the page views by 105% over November of 1999.

3rd Quarter 2000 - Quarterly figures for user sessions rose 11% from 2nd Quarter '00 levels.  This is the first time we have experienced a rise during the 3rd quarter - typically a time for outdoor activities.  3rd Quarter '00 usage increased 111% over 3rd Quarter '99. 

1999 Yearly Figures show an outstanding 100,426 users requesting 310,586 pages.  It's difficult to do a true comparison as we did not purchase the logging software until mid-February '99, but a rough estimate is that we nearly tripled our visitors/hits from the previous year.
