Ok, Tuesday was quite a busy day for me and many of my colleagues here at The National Archives. It was brilliant to launch Operation War Diary and provide access to the unit war diaries online. If you havenâ€™t already, you really must take a look at our First World War collections, and preferably get tagging!
For the first time we were able to make use of real time web analytics. This means that we could see data about how people were using our website second by second â€“ where people were coming from, what pages were being used and what sorts of devices people were using.
A couple of things really stood out during the day and I wanted to share these with you. This is by no means a comprehensive evaluation of yesterdayâ€™s activity, just some observations by someone who loves statisticsâ€¦
