What’s the answer? (web site usage stats)

BioStar is a site for asking, answering and discussing bioinformatics questions. We are members of the community and find it very useful. Often questions and answers arise at BioStar that are germane to our readers (end users of genomics resources). Every Thursday we will be highlighting one of those questions and answers here in this thread. You can ask questions in this thread, or you can always join in at BioStar.

This week’s highlighted question:

Major bioinformatics website usage statistics

Does anyone know of links to the web usage statistics over time of the following major bioinformatics portals?

  • The UCSC Genome Browser
  • Ensembl
  • Galaxy
  • NCBI
  • any others that I’ve left off this list

Many thanks, Casey

There is a selected answer that has some great data on the UCSC Genome Browser usage, but there’s still room for more answers if you have some data on these publicly available sites. Have a look, and share your knowledge if you have some links.
