Analysis of Usage of The Dooyeweerd Pages
For the week 30 June - 7 July 2012

This page analyses accesses to The Dooyeweerd Pages, for a single week.

For the present I am making the results of analysis open.

It is intended that others will follow.

Overall Analysis, Week 30 June - 7 July 2012

Total number of accesses = 6515

Total number of accesses that were not bots, crawlers etc. ~= 877

Total number of queries during week = 430. Highlights:

Total number of viable multiple accesses = 55.

Query Analysis

I now want to find out which kinds of queries have led to a Dooyeweerdian page, I have classified them into:

Specific Dooyeweerdian Topic Requested

These are Dooyeweerdian topics that have been asked for. Specific Dooyeweerdian topics are either where Dooyeweerd is mentioned in the query (except when comparing with an author, below), or where the words of the query seem to be 'jargon' that is most likely to come from Dooyeweerd. For example 'aspects' on its own would be Dooyeweerdian, while 'economic aspect of ...' would be a direct request for an aspect, below.

Non-Dooyeweerdian Topics (from the 'Mainstream')

The following are the topics asked for, which seem to be not specific to Dooyeweerd nor to religion. These topics indicate how useful it might be to draw people into seeing something of Dooyeweerd. The query text, or approximation, is given, followed by a number if more than one query of this kind, followed by the page(s) that the searchers found for the query.

Christian or other religious topic

Another author mentioned, or an idea associated with them

Specific aspect asked for by name

This shows how many times each aspect was asked for by name, as "x aspect", where the aspect name is an adjective of 'aspect'. The number in brackets shows other requests that brought up this page, when it was delivered in response to another query, such as when the word 'aspects of X' is plural and the X is the aspect name (as in aspects of sociology).

Economic 82 (+6)

Juridical 0 (+1)
Ethical 3 (+5)

Publications Directly Requested

In these requests, a paper or other publication is asked for by name.

Reflection on Queries

The Dooyeweerd Pages attracts a lot of queries not associated with Dooyeweerd, many of them asking for specific aspects, but also many other topics. This is a major opportunity for the Dooyeweerd Pages to introduce people to the work of Dooyeweerd.

However, we don't know whether what they read interests them and takes them further. That is what has to happen if the Pages are to fulfil this function. There is, unfortunately, no way to know how long someone reads a single page - especially reads it meaningfully and effectually. However, we can get some idea by analysis of multiple accesses. Also, multiple accesses by a single source indicate activity of moving around the Dooyeweerd Pages, which in turn suggests a degree of interest.

Multiple Access Analysis

Multiple accesses, of one page after another within a short time, might reflect particular interest in the Dooyeweerd Pages, and might indicate what people are interested in at a deeper level.

Method of analysis: Sort all accesses in source-URL and time order. Then go through (maually, but it could be automated) finding successive accesses with the same URL and day of access. Get rid of all the rest. Then examine these to find out:

This might cause us to remove some, because they do not seem to be a good pattern. Patterns rejected include:

Total number of viable multiple accesses = 55
Total number of pages involved in multiple accesses = 188

Analysis of Pages Involved in Multiple Accesses

This is a table enables us to see the popularity and use of each page involved in a multiple access sequence.

Key to table:

'Total' = total accesses to this page in multis;
'First' = number where page is first in sequence, usually from a search query; This indicates which pages are useful entries to other pages from the outside world.
'Other' = number where not first; this might indicate which pages people find it useful to go to with a click.

'From' indicates where page reached from. If from another Dooyeweerd page, then name of page given. 'X' = from an external page. 'A' = from an external page that is an article. 'S-xx' = search (google, yahoo, etc.) from .xx country. 'Scom' = search from .com.

Note 1. The large numbers for these three aspects suggest a student class given a question "Discuss physical, social and economic aspects of ...". C.f. above in Query Analysis.

Pages That Lead To Others

The following table shows from which pages users went to others, so that we can tell which are the most 'fruitful' pages to generate movement.

Table Key:

Page = page on which user clicked a hyperlink to another page
Total goings = Number of such movements from this page
Go to = list of pages gone to from this page (with number of more than once)
