Bear with me. I’m gonna go a little geeky on this one.
One of those stats that people love to look at when they study web site analytics is pages per visit. Google Analytics makes it super simple to take a look at your high level web statistics. You can get a good feel for how your site is performing when looking at these clickstream data stats. To get a good sense of site performance and ROI, you really shouldn’t stop here. In most cases, I haven’t seen an organization do a real good job tracking on their own. Most of the time they do nothing.
What got me thinking about this was the fact that over the past few years, I would say my average pages per visit into my Bible have really increased.
- Of course, you have Quality of Content. You can’t get much better.
- A good study Bible does an incredible job with internal cross linking to other pages with relevant information
I’ve found that the more I read and understand, the more I want. I’ve begun piecing together text and how it relates to other text. There is comfort in the structure and “navigation” of the Bible. What used to confuse me in regards to chronology seems…fits now.
My question to you… Have you taken a chance to think about your Bible reading time Stats? Time on Site, Pages per visit. How about Traffic Source? You know, do you find yourself browsing direct to a url or are you having to do an index search for your topic?
