Enlighten, like so many other repositories uses Google Analytics (although I think we are just scratching the surface of the information which it can provide for us) and we have now updated our top 100 keyword searches from Google for the last six months.
The results provide an insight into both the breadth of research which is done at the University and the searches which users are doing in Google which bring them to us.
They also show that in the last two months searches just for “Enlighten” have overtaken the previous top search “desquamative gingivitis”! Enlighten is steadily climbing in the Google rankings and is now listed third in Google search results.

Google Custom Search
