Analytics: February 2019
February’s numbers show a small decrease in trends from last year. We had 13,993 users, compared to 14,247 visitors in 2018. Sessions were down 7.22% from last year, but the number of sessions per user increased by 1.29% since January. Half of our users came from search engines — 98% of which, from Google organic search.
