I wanted to know if the changes to the site have brought more people to learn about epilepsy, and is the site helping more people with epilepsy find the resources they need. I found that the number of visitors and the number of visits has increased more than 200 percent!
Apples to Apples
I took a look at Google Analytics to see how the web traffic to the old site compared to the new site. A comparison of December 2011 (old site) to December 2012 (new site) is as close to an “Apples to Apples” comparison as I could get. Below you will see that both the number of visitors and the number of visits have more than doubled.
Dec 1, 2011 – Jan 2, 2012
