  • Some stats on plone documentation usage

    from jonstahl on Mar 15, 2012 10:55 PM
    Since we have a bit a conversation starting about Plone documentation,
    I though it would be helpful and interesting to share some stats from
    Plone.org's Google Analytics account about what people are looking for
    and finding w/r/t Plone.org documentation.  (If anyone has interesting
    stats on our various externally-hosted docs, e.g. RTD, I'd love to get
    them or get access to them.)
    
    First, some toplines:
    
    Our docs section got about 500k visits in the past year originating
    with a search (the vast majority of searches from Google, no surprise
    there.)  We also had about 85k searches on plone.org, excluding
    searches originating in the Products section.  So, while it is true
    that most of people "search plone.org via Google" we are still seeing
    a substantial fraction of search usage happening internally.  So I
    think it is important that we continue to invest in making plone.org
    searching as good as it can be.
    
    I also think it is interesting to look at the most commonly used
    search terms and landing pages.    I looked at three things:
    
    1) Top 100 Documentation pages reached via external (Google) searches
    2) Top 100 Google Search terms landing on plone.org
    3) Top 100 searches performed on plone.org (excluding searches
    starting in /products)
    
    Data dump below, but here's some interpretation:
    
    - Wow, looks like we've SEO-optimized for "xxx," let's slap some ads
    up there. ;-)
    - lots of interest in ldap, windows, webdav, active directory.
    - Also seeing strong interest in diazo, dexterity other core components
    - Common features like blogs, forums, handling PDFS, calendars, facebook, rss
    - Lots of KB articles in our Top 100, this could be because we've
    moved lots of our official manual content off-site.
    
    Anyway, I hope this provides some useful food for thought for
    documentation authors, editors and developers.
    
    cheers,
    jon

  • Re: [Plone-docs] Some stats on plone documentation usage

    from spanky on Mar 16, 2012 04:51 PM
    To me, this is another argument for keeping our documentation "local"; we have access to analytics.  Not sure if we can get stats from other areas like RTD.  I can be corrected though.
