Multilingual search[edit]

I agree that multilingual/language support in search is a valuable goal. Nemo 19:26, 25 May 2016 (UTC)

Bounce rate[edit]

Bounce rate for the project portals is not a very valuable metric. If people give up visiting the portal at all, for instance, bounce rate may decrease but we would not have improved anything. I suggest to define better goals, probably in absolute values. Nemo 19:29, 25 May 2016 (UTC)

Re: Increase usage of the visual editor[edit]

This is not a valid goal. Editing interfaces are a means to an end. Nemo 19:31, 25 May 2016 (UTC)

Wikivoyage maps[edit]

Is https://searchdata.wmflabs.org/maps/#wikivoyage_usage correct that usage from Wikivoyage has halved in June 2016 (from ~50k usages/day to ~20k)? --Nemo 20:33, 7 August 2016 (UTC)

Looks that way, yeah. Max is more familiar with the actual implementation of Schema:GeoFeatures event logging (EL) than me, so all I can say is that those numbers on the dashboard are correctly reflecting the data in our EL database. --MPopov (WMF) (talk) 21:00, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
The domain is no longer reachable. Where are those statistics now? Nemo 10:10, 20 November 2016 (UTC)
Hi Nemo, Is this what you're looking for? CKoerner (WMF) (talk) 15:56, 21 November 2016 (UTC)
Seems so, yes. I see the notes also explain that the apparent decrease in usage was actually due to a bug, spotted by User:Josve05a. Thanks! Nemo 09:47, 22 November 2016 (UTC)
