Many of the top content pages are navigational pages as would be expected. However, information relating to the on-going Hanson Cement Investigation features twice in the top fifteen for the English language version of the website.
The landing page is the page through which a visitor enters the website. The press statement about the Hanson Cement Response Team meeting was the second most popular way in which visitors entered the Public Health Wales website. The data show that many of these visitors came to this page after following a link from either  the HSE website or the BBC news website.
For the Welsh language version of the website, the homepage was the most recorded landing page at 48 per cent. The remaining 52 per cent of visitors accessed the website via 66 different pages although none of these pages individually accounted for a significant proportion of entries.
