We’d like to take a brief, self-indulgent moment to send a huge shout-out to all our Readers for another great month of traffic – The B-Town Blog had over 72,000 Visits during July, 2012, up + 21.36% over June!

Here are our statistics from Google Analytics, showing a total of 72,108 Visits (vs 59,417 in June) – up +21.36%, and 140,141 Pageviews (vs 114,450 in June) – up +22.45%:

We’re proud of our success here at The B-Town Blog, because we’ve worked very hard since December 2007 to continually serve the Community we live, work, shop and spend in by updating our website daily with professionally-produced, award-winning local Journalism (we’ve been awarded ‘Best Hyperlocal Website‘ in the entire Northwest by the Society of Professional Journalists for two consecutive years – come to our booth at Thursday’s Farmers Market to see the awards yourself!).

And we’d like to point a few things out to our Readers, as well as any businesses considering Advertising:

  • We are (far as we know) the only local website in the entire country that is absolutely transparent in its website traffic statistics – something you will NOT see on any other competing “local” websites (and we challenge them all to do the same…). Click on the Sitemeter or Quantcast graphics below to see our LIVE stats (keep in mind that statistics vary with each independent measuring company, something that’s not in our control, and part of the risk of being transparent):

  • Transparent” of course means that, at any time, YOU the Reader can click on one of these 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. Ever see any other website do that? Neither have we…
  • We strongly believe there is no more room in the media world for self-produced, fabricated circulation numbers. We’d also like to remind any potential Advertisers out there to shop around and ask for actual, independent proof of traffic/circulation statistics from other sites before buying, because you deserve honesty and professionalism.
  • Our philosophy for gaining Readers, though simple, is very effective:
