Web Statistics

There are twenty webs that make up the Encyclopedia. Most focus on a particular type of Iris a few others such as the Garden Web or the History Web focus on a topic. Each web has its own archive of statistics that can be accessed by the wiki word WebStatistics.

The amount of traffic each web gets is based partly on how developed that web is and the relative interest in the topic. Here is a table that compares number of views for each during the month of March 2017.

Analysis

Looking at the data it is sort of obvious that the more work that has been put into an area the better the results. Not an unexpected result. Those webs with a higher ratio of pages with images, receive more attention. Because the inequality of size of the groups an attempt to even out that problem was the creation of ^ of views / page / for the last 12 months. Note the first 3 TB webs show only a partial count of pages with images.

General webs

Bio Web
Who would have believed that in the last 12 months there were almost a half million visits to the Bio web. Presently the most information that is on each hybridizers page is their list of registrations, some few deceased irisarians have their obituary included. Some few have an image of the person, yet is amazing that so many are visiting the web for information. We owe a frear deal of thanks to John Black and Betsy Higgins who were the primary constructors and researchers for these pages.
History/Library Web
The History web has been slow to construct. Its primary components are the video library, the catalog Library which has just recently reached 1,000+ catalogs, and over 600 artcles and books talking about Irises. A small area is devoted to Iris nurseries and their history. Interest in this area has been mushrooming. This March there were almost 4 times as many views as March a year ago. It is expected that this web will grow considerably as the next 1,000 catalogs are added.
Garden Web
Perhaps one of the poorest developed webs. The Display, Test Garden Program is slow to get going, yet despite only 54 pages in the web there is considerable interest and The we could grow dramatically.
