Analytics

The UIS website caters to several different audiences, all under one website. The Office of Web Services has code on all official UIS WordPress websites that can offer some amazing insights about how visitors find and use our websites. This creates a large amount of data that can be beneficial when the right questions are asked.

We share this information with our campus website Editors in different ways to help them identify their audience behavior. This allows our Editors to form their content in the most beneficial way for their particular audience behavior.

  • Web Services Reports include The Top 100 websites for each year, number and sources of visits to the UIS website, and Web Accessibility Reports.
