Actually I might be incorrect as I have not scanned all the previous months, but the number of people visting either the forum or the main site yesterday was the highest for February and in general February is going to knock socks off the previous months for this figure.

In fact the total has already exceeded January

Great news! I'm new and don't feel qualified to post on a number of issues, but having just found this site, I've spent ages reading through the topics. It's a really friendly and informative site. How long has it been going jema?

Hi chrissy, don't worry about posting, jump in! If you're not sure just say so as all info is useful.

The site has been running since late October last year. So under 4 months.

Going into repeat mode now, Thursday was another clear record breaker for the main site. 807 visits from 742 sites.

The forum was not quite a record but close with 521 visits from 586 sites.


Taken together I have seen sites talk about these sorts of figures when trying to attract advertising!

Quite notably we have had approx 2200 search engine hits on the forums and 1300 on the main site.

The forums have leapt upwards in this regard

Not actually a record on Friday, but on every single monthly total Feb has now exceeded all previous months.

I have noticed a remarkable increase too, as both of our sites have not been around for a year (yet) I think that this will perhaps happen every year. Stands to reason, people start to think of more natural things (growing ect) with the end of winter.

I think so to I guess our launch date of late October was about the worst time possible

Saturday was as always our slow day of the week, but even there it was the best Saturday of the month
