Yesterday we received this notification from WordPress which caused a giggle for all of us. This refers to the volume of traffic we are getting to this “African Scientologists Getting Back in Comm” blog
The stats certainly are booming. The idea of this blog was born some months ago. Numerous people had said that we need a local forum. Somewhere to get news about what is going in our own area. When we finally launched on the 25th of October. We hoped that over time we would grow into a stable place for people to get some local info. We’ve been blown away! Here are the stats as reported by WordPress. Clearly this is something needed and wanted. Scientologists love communicating and this proves that given the opportunity they will do so in volume.
While we have been impressed with the visits we are getting from around the world (and we thank you all) it has been particularly gratifying that South Africans are finding their way here in droves.
For those who don’t know the terms used: “Visitors” reflects individuals coming to the site while “views” represents the number of times the site was viewed. So one person visiting the site could view several articles or come back to the site multiple times. In the picture above we see that so far today we have had 305 visitors and the views are 834 which means each visitor viewed 2.7 pages or returned 2.7 times.
The “best ever” figure was from yesterday. We had over 1600 visitors yesterday contributing that many views.
In short we are getting back in comm.
