Site Update

A couple of changes were made to my website – Chris Korte’s New Zealand Genealogy Project.

The Site visitors page was updated with addition of 2011 visitor data from Google Analytics.The pattern of use was very similar in 2011 to the previous year with almost 6,000 visits during the year. There were over 170 visits per month by visitors who looked at the site, each looking at 3-4 pages on average per visit (these are the “non-bounce” visits).All pages on the site were updated to remove the ticker below the menu. The ticker had listed recent updates to the site, but these are now posted to this Blog site and can be seen on the Home page. Special software was required to update the ticker and it was easier to post updates from this site.


Blog Statistics – 2011 collects information on visitors to each blog. The following is a summary for 2011 for this blog. This blog was viewed about 1,400 times in 2011. The last three months of the year had more visits than earlier in the year, over 150 visits per month (Oct-Dec) compared with about 50 visits per month (Jan-Mar).

In 2011, there were 12 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 19 posts.

Most blog visitors came from The United States. New Zealand & Australia were not far behind.

These are the posts that got the most views in 2011.

The post Genealogy apps for iPad: Ancestry fail, GedView pass (October 2011) got the most views for the year (almost 250 times). Since posting, this has been updated following release of a new version of the Ancestry app.
