Site Statistics - May 30, 2007

As of today, continues to grow and more importantly has begun to stabilize in the search engines results, something we are pleased to see. So with that said, what are the stats?

The Google search engine currently recognizes 264 pages, recognizes 25 active pages mostly higher level pages, and the Yahoo Search Site Explore recognizes our top two page-levels. In short, our pages are currently optimized for Google but we are slowly being distributed throughout the rest of the web.

Yet we still have not showed up in the Directory Listings, but the site submittal process through the Dmoz project can take several months to propagate a site thread throughout the directory listings. We’ll keep an eye on this.

Site Maintenance and Broken / Unresponsive Link Report

Over this Memorial Day weekend holiday our office has conducted site wide maintenance while our site traffic was expected to be slow, yet surprisingly we noticed our visits were up throughout the morning. Apparently many of our visitors were also utilizing this time off to work on their careers, so with that in mind we postponed various site maintenance activities.

However, we did run our usual weekly link report and noticed an increasing in timeout reports from various servers, possibility undergoing weekend maintenance too. Overall, 96.90% of reporting URL’s were active, with 2.23% timed-out links and the remaining 0.87% resulting from external host server errors.

Military Career Resource Section Improved

Although with many of our web site pages, as content continue to develop we will continually expand those resources we provide. So with that, we have restructured the military transition section into an overall military careers section, adding to this section a military organizations segment which is currently under development.

We however did notice a slight formatting error when viewing our site using the Firefox Browser, but this formatting inconsistency is minor and does not affect the overall content, hence a low priority for now. Overall, we will continue to optimize our site for the three most used browsers; Internet Explore, Fire Fox, and Netscape Compatible.
