Ed Web Sites Runneth Over With Content, Study Says
Higher education Web sites make up less than
.01 percent of all Web sites, yet account for more than
2.5 percent of all available Web content, according to an analysis by WebsiteASP,
Inc., an application service provider. Higher education institutions host
about 200 million Web pages divided between about 5,000 sites, the company
found. This amounts to an average of 40,000 Web pages per higher education
site, or about 250 times more pages than the average site on the Web.
In contrast, there are about 8 billion Web
pages on the World Wide Web today, according to Google.
Those pages are served by about 50 million different Web sites, with an average
of 160 pages per site.
"Looking at these statistics--excluding only the largest e-commerce and media-related sites--it has become evident that there are no harder working content managers than those at colleges and universities today," said Lance Merker, president of WebsiteASP, Inc.
The study suggested that higher education Web
sites have become "an important supplement, and in many cases a complete replacement, for information dissemination, research and transactions.
College web sites, and those who manage them, are expected to offer an unprecedented volume and variety of information and services."
