September Website Bytes

By Hannah Jastram, Communications Associate

Here are the top three new web developments that you need to know.

Lead Is Bad

We all know we don't want this heavy metal in our drinking water. But do we know how to keep ourselves safe? Visit Protect Against Lead for 10 tips.

Partnering for School Success Is Out; School Success Is In

The erstwhile Partnering for School Success website has been transformed into School Success, a website to help parents and teachers work together to support children's learning.

We're Cool and We Know It

We get great grants and do nifty research all the time, and our website is growing to reflect that. Here are four new pages about the work we do:
Many thanks to Joyce Serido, Teri Burgess-Champoux, Ali Hurtado, Sara Croymans, Anita Harris,  Heather Lee, and Ruth Ellis for their work on these pages.

BONUS: Fun Fact

Sixty percent of the traffic to our websites comes through "organic search." This means well over half of our visitors typed something into Google or Bing or DuckDuckGo and ended up on one of our web pages. In the last month, here are the three web pages where visitors landed most often:
  1. Background on Southeast Asian Parenting [archived Sept. 2017]
  2. Using Natural and Logical Consequences
  3. What's Normal for Teen Development: Biological and Physical Changes
I have no idea why the bicultural parenting page is so popular, especially given that the top keyword used by visitors to reach our site is "parents forever." ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
