today holds a very high potential of informing individuals and
getting in touch with them not only here in the Philippines but
throughout the world. PUPWebSite, the official Internet site of the
University, serves as our means to reach out to a vast number of
audiences, giving them information that is relevant to them anytime
expected that PUPWebSite would go on a long way since it only
started as a college feasibility project. It has been an
experience getting this site into what it is today and we want to
share those experiences with you, so perhaps you'll be able to
apply them as you build and manage your own Web site.
When the PUPWebSite project was initially launched in 1998, the
site was designed only to display basic information about the
University. The site was then hosted at GeoCities having 8MB of
HTML documents and image files.
As the site took off in 1999, more and more responses and
requests began filling its guest book. In the later months, a
number of pages containing relevant information about the
University were added.
Today, PUPWebSite continues to evolve dramatically as it gives
its visitors information and online services that is relevant and
useful to them. And PUPWebSite has matured into one of the
University's most important promotion medium. New Internet and Web
technologies allow the delivery of personalized and relevant
information to our clienteles, who respond by telling us about
themselves. That customer information helps us focus our content
and provide services that assist visitors in quickly finding the
information they need.
Who are our visitors? And why do they come... and come back?
