Semester in Review: Top 10 Pipe Dream posts

This semester Pipe Dream received 159,276 visits and 313,853 pageviews. Nearly 25% of these visits were on mobile devices and 32% of visitors lived in Binghamton, Johnson City and Endicott.

47% of our traffic came from search engines while 33% came from other websites (referral traffic). Facebook accounted for 23% of our overall traffic.

Compared to the Fall 2010 semester, we received 19,000 more visits and 65,000 more pageviews. Two years ago, referral traffic made up only 25% of our traffic. Traffic from Facebook has more than doubled (37,000 visits this fall compared to 17,500 two years ago).
