1.  Top 40 Pages

There were a higher than normal number of changes in the 'Top 40' Chart last month.

This may be because fewer people frond the site through Google searches in May 2014.

 Why was that?   The EdinPhoto web site still has a page ranking of 5/10 on Google - a ranking that it has had for several years - but since 23 April far fewer viewers have been referred to the site from Google.

The number of referrals to the site by search engines over the past 3 months have been

The EdinPhoto web site is entirely non-commercial, so I'm not  looking for more visitors to do more business, and I'm already receiving more emails than I'm able to cope with, so a reduction in the number of visitors from Google in not likely to cause a problem for me - but it would be interesting to discover the reason for the change.

I believe that Google are continually changing their Search Engine algorithm - 500 times a year, I've read - but the change in April this year seems to have had quite a dramatic effect, at least for the EdinPhoto site!

2.  Sessions and Pages Viewed

There were:

(a)  187,716 sessions in May  (2% more than in April).

(b)   745,083 pages viewed in May  (7% fewer than in April)).

(c)   The average session was 4.0 pages in May  (0.4 fewer than in April).
