The number of unique visitors to the Scotia Applause website decreased by 3.7% in FY2007 versus FY2006. This indicates that the number of Non-Registered users has increased YOY and focus should be applied on activating these employees in FY2008. There were 20 new branches opened in FY2007 Q4 and this could be the reason for the increase in the number of Non-Registered users. Online Game

5 Scotia Applause FY2007 Q4 Web Metrics Report Total Page Views OBSERVATIONS: Total page views increased by 38% in FY2007 Q4 versus FY2006 Q4. Total pages views also increased by 67% in FY2007 Q4 versus FY2007 Q3. This data is not surprising since ABOB 2007 is a major initiative in Q4 which contributes to the significant spikes in web traffic. The YOY increases in website activity during this time reinforces the success of the initiative. Overall, the total page views was 6.7% higher in FY2007 in comparison to FY2006. FY2006 Total: 27,998,146 FYTD Total: 29,872,831

Visitors Loyalty OBSERVATIONS: In FY2007 Q4, Scotia Applause had a significant increase in the number of Moderate Users in comparison to FY2007 Q3. Again, this increase can be attributed to the successful execution of ABOB 2007 in Q4. The number of light users decreased throughout FY2007 Q4 versus FY2007 Q3. This is a consistent trend in comparison to total visitors and total page views where website activity spiked throughout Q4. The number of peer recognitions sent in FY2007 Q4 was 5,717 higher than FY2006 Q4 which may also have contributed to the YOY increase in visitor loyalty.

11 Scotia Applause FY2007 Q4 Web Metrics Report Recommendations An analysis of the Total Number of Unique Visitors and the apparent decrease in YOY numbers indicates that the number of non-registered users are gradually increasing. In FY2008 an increased focus should be applied on activating these participants. The new Applause online game (Treasure Island) launching in Q1 of FY2008 will certainly help drive more registration, but other initiatives ought to be explored as well. A holistic analysis of FY2006 and FY2007 website activity reflects that web traffic on Scotia Applause slows down significantly in Q3 of each year. Therefore planning for initiatives to launch in Q3 will help sustain consistent activity throughout the year. Even though activity on the Rewards catalogue increased significantly in FY2007 Q4, the launch of the new catalogue in FY2008 Q1 will result in higher site activity during that period. Ensuring proper communication via the newsroom and MAAG is imperative to help maintain high levels of website traffic on the Rewards catalogue for a longer period of time. It is apparent that ABOB is a major contributor in driving website activity in Q4. Therefore sporadic communication should be deployed throughout the year via a communication piece, , newsroom or MAAG to help keep ABOB top of mind and subsequently increasing YOY website activity.
