The table shows that the Web site is stabilizing in terms of unique visitor IP addresses, number of visits, pages that were opened, accessed file hits and visitor data download bandwidth over the past three years. People visit Web sites for content. If the content doesn't change much then the site becomes a reference rather than somewhere to go for the latest innovations and ideas. To increase these metrics contributions are needed to the standards development area, forums, and tutorial file download areas.

 Items 2, 9 and 10 are relatively recent postings and this shows people do pickup on new content. Google is our friend here and in 2016 channeled some 11,000 visitors to view site pages. New materials are needed to boost the site metrics and promote SPDC.

New download materials

A folder has been created to encourage people to submit draft tutorials for posting. The "Members Tutorials" folder is located in the Standards > Contribution Files > Public > SC3.7 Docs folder.

There have been two contributions at the time of this newsletter and these should appear in the e-Learning folder shortly.
