Note: from 2009 on Statistics utilize newer stat collection software that better filters "bots" and search engine crawlers. Because of these filters, the number of visitors and page views are significantly lower than previous years and should not be compared with previous years' stats as an indicator to activity of the Journal of Extension Web site.

A "page view" is defined as a request for a displayable page, such as the main page of JOE, an article, or the search page. "Page views" represents an actual, hard number of pages "served."

For our stats system, a "visitor" is defined as a series of hits from any particular computer’s "address." If any two hits from a single computer are separated by 30 minutes or more, two visitors are counted. "Visitors" represents an extrapolated number, because we really have no way of tracking who is viewing our website.
