July 2017 e-edition analytics

In the core areas of pageviews, sessions, and users, there was no clear winner this month. Most all publications fell or only had an increase in one area. This may be due to a change in user habits in the middle of summer. 

For all of our e-editions that had age data, the top two age groups were 55-64 and 65+ this is consistent with the age groups of print and consistent with previous months. HTML5 won out on all our sites as the top way to view the e-edition, which has been fairly consistent throughout the months. 

The reports are from our analytic dashboards. If there are any questions or issues reading these reports, please let the Digital Team know. Percentages will show in green or red. Green is a positive growth, red is negative. Most of the widgets that break up the different information are set to easily answer questions of our website analytics and audience.

Analytics can be viewed at any time by visiting our analytics site here. If you would like any of those dashboards emailed to you, please email the digital team with the name of the dashboard and if you would like the analytics emailed to you either weekly or monthly.
