Most of the top content pages are navigational pages as would be expected and six pages feature in the top fifteen for both versions of the website.
The landing page is the page through which a visitor enters the website. It is interesting to note that eight diseases/health topics appear on this list and it is probable that visitors landed on these pages from the results of a Google (or other search-engine) search on these conditions.
For the Welsh language version of the website, the homepage was the most recorded landing page at 47 per cent although 19 per cent of visitors accessed the website through the ‘Obesity’ and ‘Eating, Physical Activity and Obesity’ pages.
