first_imgBar’s Web site tops 100 million vists January 15, 2009 Regular News Bar’s Web site tops 100 million vistscenter_img With the annual number of visits to The Florida Bar’s Web site surpassing 100 million and still growing, the Communications Committee is looking for ways to improve the site and its accessibility for members and the public. Committee Chair Ray Abadin told the board that one factor in the increasing use is the rising technological savvy of Bar members, two-thirds of whom are 50 or younger.He noted that hits on the Web site were almost 37 million in 2003-04. They had risen to 106.1 million in 2006-07 and to 118.7 million for 2007-08.The most popular part of the site is the Find A Lawyer page, followed by the site’s home page, and then the Bar Journal. Next is the section in which Bar members report their CLE hours, followed by the Bar News , and the Bar’s master calendar. Bar membership surveys have shown an increasing use of technology by Bar members, Abadin said, and the Young Lawyers Division uses its Web site to communicate with members, which has resulted in a spike of visits to the site.The committee hopes to emulate that in its efforts, he said, which could include continuing efforts to phase out the printed Journal directory, since all the information in the publication is available online, where it can be more regularly updated.He invited board members to review the Web site and make suggestions for improvement, adding, “We’re going to be making significant changes to the electronic media and the data presentation to our members.”last_img read more
