Most Popular WA TV History Web Pages

Most Popular WA TV History Web Pages

According to Google Analytics, the WA TV History web site has to date had 1,145,714 successful requests for individual web pages.

The actual figure is much larger than that as Google Analytics were not installed on the site as of day one.

The visitors come from all over the globe, with the vast majority coming from Australia, followed by the Philippines, United States, United Kingdom and Canada.

Over this period, our peak readership was during October 2009, following the many stories on Seven folk leading up to TVW’s 50th anniversary.

The web page analytics not only shows how many users accessed individual web pages, but can differentiate between one user and another, how many times they viewed each page and for how long. This is represented as the user’s IP address, of which nearly 26,000 have visited our site. We have no knowledge of who the individuals are. Most users are dynamically issued an IP address by their ISP. Even with an ADSL connection this can vary over a day. So only the ISP is capable of identifying their customers, and this usually relates to billing matters, though it does offer a means of tracking hackers.

The ability of the Internet industry to monitor its audience is infinitely superior to that of radio and television stations who have difficulty determining how engaged their audience is with the content. A radio or TV set may be turned on, but there is little guarantee that the household is devoting their full attention to it. The Internet is also more interactive than old media, even though telephone talkback and polls offer some feedback. For this reason old media is adopting the Internet to overcome this deficiency. The ABC is a trailblazer in doing so, though the others are following close behind.


Reg-Stats.jpg


The above statistics relate to our Reg Whiteman Tribute. Reg was the life and soul behind children’s favourite Fat Cat for several decades, and who died in Perth on Thursday July 28, 2011, aged 82. The viewing statistics relate to the week following his demise.


Here are the cumulative statistics between then and now which show how popular his tribute was…

Please note that the longer a web page exists on the site, the more visits it will attract. Though when a topic is fresh it tends to get lots of hits, then a trickle of visitors continue discovering the item over time. Other than direct visitors and people navigating around the site, Google is the next most influential factor in attracting readers.

The figures below represent the analysis provided by our web hosting company in the United States.
