More than one in four visits to a Philly city government website last month landed on the one about taxes for property owners.

The City of Philadelphia’s property assessment site was the city government site that reached the most eyeballs last month, with more than 280,000 unique page views, according to city data. 

The site, which allows users to find current and proposed property assessments on any city property, has been popular for some time. Chief Data Officer Mark Headd said last summer that it was by far the most-trafficked phila.gov site, especially in light of Philadelphia’s property reassessment move. It’s the reason why Headd’s staff redesigned the site, which wasn’t built to handle so much traffic.

In terms of sheer volume, the city’s Revenue Department website was the best-trafficked last month with nearly 442,000 page views (not unique).

Find a list of the 10 best-trafficked phila.gov sites in terms of unique page counts below. Headd published the data on Github yesterday.

  1. Office of Property Assessment: 280,803 unique page views / 28.07 percent of overall unique page views
  2. Revenue Department: 181,412 / 18.13 percent
