October is traditionally OCW’s annual high-water mark for traffic, and last month was no disappointment in that regard.  The site received a record 1,733,198 visits from 1,026,004 unique visitors.  This eclipses the previous high of 1,602,561/1,015,112 from August last year, and is a 12.4%/12.8% increase over last October.

A few more October numbers:

  • Average visits per day: 55,909
  • Page views:  8.8 M
  • Top course: 6.00 Intro to Computer Science and Programming – 104,096 visits

It’s great to see continued momentum as we swing into a new school year.
