Notes

  1. A mobile website was launched in October 2013 and from then all visits to www.cravendc.gov.uk from smartphones were diverted to the mobile website m.cravendc.gov.uk. More info on our mobile website.  The 'Sessions' figure above includes both websites.
  2. 'Sessions' were previously (before April 2014) called 'Visits' in Google Analytics.
  3. From April-May 2014 statistics excluded visits from Craven District Council office users.
  4. In November 2011 the current GOSS website was launched.
  5. Before November 2011 Google Analytics did not distinguish between tablet and mobile users: the 'Mobile %' figure above covers both.

Google Analytics

Google Analytics is an industry-standard web statistics tool that we use to gather information about how visitors use our websites. This sets various cookies: more information here.

The data we collect helps us identify those services that matter to you by enabling us to understand:

  • how people 'find' our website;
  • which pages people visit on the website;
  • which internet browsers and what types of device are being used.

 


Overview of other Google Analytics information

Typically 80% of our visits/sessions come via an 'organic search' (e.g. Google search); 'Pages per session' is typically 2-3; and the 'bounce rate' is 45-65 (40-50% for the main 'desktop' site, 60-70% for the mobile site).  These statistics indicate that our website visitors tend to be looking for a specific piece of information or to perform a specific transaction on our website, with few people 'browsing' our website.
