Why are the new WorldCat.org statistics reporting lower numbers than the previous Clicks to Library report?
The ‘Click to library catalog report’ that appeared in OCLC Usage Statistics (www.stats.oclc.org) was capturing more than just activity on the old WorldCat.org website.
The old report also included events to your local catalog from WorldCat Local, the now discontinued predecessor of WorldCat Discovery, as well as any direct links embedded or provided by version 1.0 of the WorldCat Search API.
Statistics from the new version of WorldCat.org may be lower as they are actions that occur specifically on the WorldCat.org site.
