Being indexed by others occurs naturally from having content public on
the Web at meaningful, persistent URLs.

Currently over 90% of the visitors to the site are arriving via doing
searches of the Web. Most of those visitors have followed links to the
site that have appeared in Google search results.
In the past month, over 44,000 different search terms were entered in
Web searches that led to people reaching the Hansard site. Seems like
a wide range of niche audiences may already be finding information of
interest to them.
What form of indexing did you feel would make the information more
accessible to a wider range of audiences? How would we define the goal
of making the information more accessible, and how would we measure
whether we achieved that goal?
