We just got some interesting numbers relative to www.wibw.com. Let me share them with you.
We set a July record for traffic with 802,000 page views on our website. That is up from 325,000 in July of last year.
We had 153,899 this July. That compares to 68,892 last year.
TIME ON SITE
The average visitor spent 2:14 on the site compared to 1:27 last year.
All of those numbers show a huge increase over the previous year. At the same time, we've greatly expanded our submission efforts. We were submitting about 850 stories per month on the website a few months ago. This July, my staff posted more than 2200. That is more than any of my local competitors.
I'm really proud of what the staff has accomplished. I hope that each day, you view it as improvement.
I'm interested in your opinion. Either by posting a note to this blog or by sending me an email, I'd love to hear what you think.
