New portal a hit with visitors

Waitakere Online, the city’s new electronic gateway for residents, businesses and visitors, has attracted a lot of visits in its first month.

Launched at the Wellbeing Summit on 16 July, 1500 visits have been recorded in the past thirty days, making an average of 50 visits per day.

With an average stay of 12 minutes, the statistics indicate people are using the site on a daily basis. People were also more likely to visit during the week, with over 1300 visits occurring Monday to Friday.

Those 12 minutes may be to check the weather, pick a restaurant, find a local business or look up tourist attractions, all of which are some of the services offered on the new site.

Chair of the Editorial Board for the website, Councillor Greg Presland, says the success is due to the involvement of the community in its creation and design. “This portal has, with the benefit and assistance of input from local people experienced in IT, been designed to provide a simple yet elegant electronic gateway into Waitakere City. I hope that for many local residents it will become their homepage of choice.”

Comments from users of the site are being continuously received through a feedback tab on the site, which can be visited at www.waitakereonline.co.nz.
