It’s been a few months now since we started blogging here about how we’re making and improving the GOV.UK website .
So it’s high time we asked you whether you reckon we’re making a good job of it (the blogging, that is, rather than all the making-the-website stuff).
What we know
We’ve already picked up a few things from our analytics dashboard.
For example, we’ve noticed that most of our 4,000 monthly visitors are repeat visitors, and that our blogposts get roughly the number of pageviews we’d imagined they would (typically 300-800). Most of our posts get at least a couple of comments, which is nice.
You also seem to like us writing about the tools we use, how we work, and major changes to the product - the most popular posts over the three months have been:
- Ways to use pivotal tracker (1081 views)
- Deleting organisations and people is a thing of the past (743 views)
- Lost for words: Google stops providing keywords (728 views)
- Prototyping browse and navigation (597 views)
- What is the backlog? (541 views)
What we’d like to know
But we’ve not really asked you what you think yet.
Are we writing about the sort of stuff you’d like us to write about? Do we write too often? Is there anything you’d like to see more - or less - of? Are we responding to your comments in the way you'd like?
We thought of doing a Surveymonkey thing, but to be honest that just seemed too much of a faff all round, and we'd like to have a conversation about your comments anyway.
So if you could bung any thoughts in the comments section below, that'd be fantastic.
