Though we don’t know too much about them, we do know that A LOT of people visit DigitalNC! The graphic at right shows the number of pageviews of and visitors to the site. We’re always proud to see that around 55%-60% of the traffic routinely comes from North Carolina. Right now we’re averaging around 1,782 sessions per day.

If you’re interested in statistics about what’s on DigitalNC, we have a Statistics page that can show you the number of items and files, and some general statistics about our contributors. 

And remember that nifty tool I mentioned? DigitalNC partners can check web views on the items we’ve scanned from their collections using Partner Analytics Reports.  There they’ll find sessions, pageviews, new users, and top items by pageviews. Here’s an example showing a three-month time period from one of our partners.

We always encourage partners to report these statistics just like any other use of their collections. Just contact us if you have questions about what you find, or for ideas on how to increase your DigitalNC web analytics.

Check back on Tuesday as we reveal Day 8 of the 12 Days of NCDHC!
