Site Finder Usage Over Time
The Deployment of VeriSign "Site Finder" and ISP Response
The chart below reports the number of Site Finder page views by all Alexa users from all networks.
The relatively lower level of observed traffic on September 15 reflects, at least in part, that Site Finder was only operational for a portion of that day, a factor that is exacerbated because Alexa times are measured in GMT and because Site Finder was introduced during the morning, US Eastern time. As to the observed intermediate level of traffic on September 16, we note that the Site Finder web site was particularly slow on that day, likely somewhat reducing its successful traffic, as measured by Alexa. The reason for the drop on September 23 is unknown.
