THANKS READERS â€“ Another Month, Another Record â€“ Nearly 40,000 Readers For October!
October 2009 was another record-setting traffic month for The B-Town Blog, and like we did in September (and August and July), we’d like to shout out a huge THANK YOU to all our beloved Readers and Advertisers for the following statistics:
- 39,702 Unique Visitors â€“ an average of 1,281 per day!
- 68.369 Page Views â€“ an average of 2,205 per day!
That translates to an overall current average of nearly 1,600 Unique Visitors and nearly 2,700 Page Views per day for the lifespan of this website (launched in Dec. 2007), along with a current average visit length of over two minutes.
Here are the most recent stats from Sitemeter, a widely-used, independent website that tracks internet traffic:
As you can see, one thing that sets The B-Town Blog apart from others is our open policy of being totally transparent with our website traffic statistics â€“ something you will NOT see on any other competing “local” websites (we use quotation marks because ones produced in downtown Seattle aren’t truly “local” now, are they?).
“Transparent” 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 right then and there from external, independent sources.
That’s right – we have no intention of hiding any information from you, our Readers, nor from our Advertisers or potential Advertisers.
And we challenge our local all media competitors to do the same.

And remember, we are here to serve our community, since we all live, work, shop, eat and drink here.
We are active members of Discover Burien as well as the Southwest King County Chamber of Commerce, and you’ll see us at various events, Farmers Markets, festivals, city council meetings and much more.
