2017 Annual Summary

Launch Date: November 2008

CDC.gov Widgets traffic has grown 117% in 2017 over the prior year.  A “view” includes the number of times a widget was loaded on a page, while an “interaction” can include the number of times the “go” button was clicked, the “previous” and “next buttons” were clicked, or the number of times the user browsed through the contents of a widget and interacted with a component of the widget. “Instances” are a measure of views and interactions combined. The number of sites where a widget was embedded can also be called “virality.” This refers to the widget being spread by users sharing it and adding it on their own sites, bringing new users to the original CDC content and therefore adding additional utility.
