Notes
[1] We began to gather analytics data for inside.mines.edu in early July 2009, so data for that calendar year are incomplete.
For a rough whole-year estimate, simply double the number of visits reported above. (The 2009 figures for www.mines.edu
are complete and correct.)
[2] Due to a short period with missing data, correct inside.mines.edu numbers for visits in 2011 should be an estimated 9
percent higher than these raw figures.
[3] Due to a short period with missing data, correct inside.mines.edu numbers for visits in 2012 should be an estimated 4
percent higher than these raw figures.
[4] In 2015, Google changed some of its analytics terminology. Older terms are noted in parentheses.
[5] Mobile figures have today been revised (generally slightly upward) since earlier estimates, based on the availability of
improved analytics data. The figures shown above supersede previous numbers.
[6] In 2014, Google Analytics began to specify Windows and Windows Phone separately as phone operating systems. Prior to
that time only the Windows Phone category was reported. The relatively large increase in the general Windows categories in
2014 may be an artifact of the new reporting system.
[7] Lists are generally sorted by 2015 figures (where appropriate) to reflect current popularity of particular operating systems,
browsers, and so on.
