Thanks Readers For Our Best Month Ever! Here’s Our New “Traffic Transparency Policy”

Print This Post  Email This Post

We’d like to take a moment to thank all our wonderful B-Town Blog Readers for making June, 2009 our best month ever!:

  • 19,951 Unique Visitors – a +26.1% increase over May!
  • 40,575 Page Views – a +37% increase over May!

That translates to an overall average of over 850 Unique Visitors and nearly 1,800 Page Views per day for the lifespan of this website, along with an average visit length of 2:54.

Here are the stats from Sitemeter, a widely-used, independent website that tracks internet traffic:

We’d also like to take this opportunity to announce, that along with our new website design, effective immediately we will be totally transparent about all our website traffic statistics.

This means that, at any time, you can click on one of at least three statistics links in the footer of the website (at the bottom of any page), and see what kind of traffic we’re getting.

That’s right – we have no intention of hiding any information from you, our Readers, nor from our Advertisers or potential Advertisers.

Sure, it’s a risky move, but we think in this modern internet news era, it’s worth it, and quite frankly, something that not many others will dare do.

And we challenge our local media competitors to do the same, especially those who claim they get “…more readers than any local website.

Click on a logo below to see our stats (keep in mind that statistics vary with each independent measuring company, something that’s not in our control):

And while we’re at it, an additional, huge shout-out goes out to our Photographer, and now-Wordpress guru Michael Brunk, who did an amazing job of re-designing our website, which has resulted in some additional magic mojo that’s driving more traffic.

If you have any thoughts on our recent re-design, or want more information on our Advertising solutions, please don’t hesitate to email us!
