Pulled copies of 2016’s web access logs and current database from production’s webserver, cut out sample/example data to share with a possible vendor. Ran 2014, 2015, and 2016 web access logs through my analytics, created reports.

Very frustrated: generally same quantity of visitors monthly over the years, but a huge decline in pages-viewed per-visitor when company switched away from my own custom #webapp & design to some outside designer house with their code the company spend a ton of money on. 15 pages per visitor down to 7 – My web app encouraged exploring, comparing, discovering. New version’s “SEO improvements” clearly didn’t make a difference in drawing in visitors, I was already there on my original effort.
