We’d like to send a HUGE shout-out to all our Readers, both new and old, who helped make March 2011 The B-Town Blog’s second most-visited month ever – over 60,000 Unique Visitors!

According to Sitemeter, a widely-used, independent website tracking service, during March 2011, we had 60,707 Unique Visitors and over 103,000 Pageviews.

According to Google Analytics, we received even more – 70,775 Uniques and over 115,000 Pageviews during March.

Sitemeter’s stats indicate an impressive +43.9% increase in traffic over February; Google Analytics shows a +21.96% increase.

According to Quantcast, another independent website statistics site, The B-Town Blog is ranked the 80,857th most popular website in the U.S.!

Here are the most recent stats from Sitemeter:

We’re proud of our success here, because we work hard to continually serve the Community we live, work, shop and play in by updating our website daily.

We are Burien’s original “Local Blog,” in business since Dec. 11, 2007, and run by actual, experienced Journalists, award-winning Writers and Professional Photographers. We would like to point a few things out to our Readers, as well as businesses considering Advertising (and yes, perhaps even those allegedly planning on launching their own local, competing websites):

  • We are (far as we know) the only local news website that is absolutely transparent in its website traffic statistics – something you will NOT see on any other competing “local” websites, both new and old.

  • Transparent” of course means that, at any time, YOU the Reader 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 totally independent, external sources.
  • We strongly believe there is no more room in the media world for self-produced, fictional circulation numbers. We’d also like to remind any potential Advertisers out there to shop around and ask for actual, independent proof of website traffic statistics from other sites before buying, because our philosophy, though simple, is very effective:

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, festivals, Farmers Markets, city council meetings and much more.

We are also members of the Society of Professional Journalists and the Online News Association.
