All it means really is 100,000 people have come to the website over the month. I am constantly refreshing so its definately not 100,000 individuals.

It also means that if you have advertising it will contribute to the hosting costs. It could also be used to help get media attention, but I'd say you would probably want a constant 100,000 month in month out.

Its still an achievement though. But really It doesnt mean that much. Just that NGI gets more hits than somerandomgroup.com

One thing it does mean is that bandwidth costs could start to go up.

We actually managed closer to 150,000 by the end of the month ..

A Hit doesn't really mean much as Anth said, but still, breaking through a 100k barrier is a good thing .. and already done it again this month too.

In all - since the reworking of the webby - I've managed to add another 40 unique visitors to the site each day .. averaging close to 115 a day now .. as a comparison, the average-paranormal-group.com website usually manage about 30-40 a day .. and those are the better ones really. Paranomal groups, that is, not general paranormal websites! Probably why we do get so many media requests!

So we're getting close to 3x as many visitors a day compared to the best-of-the-rest .. and those are natural visitors too .. I'll be doing some advertising soon for the last couple of tickets for the fleece and that could add 20-30 more depending how long its running.

To put all this into perspective - we're now one of the top 1,000,000 viewed websites in the world man! Hhaha .. what an achievement! But what it does show is that unless your something big .. BBC, Facebook, Google, YouTube, MySpace etc .. very very few people go off the beaten track .. so in someways, it is an achievement to be in the top 1 million considering there are some 180 million different domains (and billions of different pages)!

Was not trying to be negative when I said it doesnt really mean anything.

Its good that you guys get the attention and its well deserved.

Nah .. didn't think you were .. you're right, the number of hits don't really mean a thing .. I just felt it was a big number that was an indication of the usage of the webby .. its unique visitors and unique page views that are the biggies ..

Hahah Claire .. fantastic stuff indeed .. from a personal point of view, adding 30-40 unique visitors a day because of the toil that goes on behind the scenes that no-one sees, is slightly rewarding .. You just don't see the results straight away so - altho your doing the right things - you only start to see the results 4-6 weeks later and never know if things are going to improve.

Well, feedback is good .. no problems with that .. but my main intention periodically is bringing the numbers in and displaying what we do in the best way possible - hence the working now towards the new (revolutionary!!?!?) way we do reports and present them .. everything else is fluff and to add content which is hopefully useful to people .. but our main bag is the investigation reports and so when thats all done and dusted and live .. hopefully, people - teamies and readers alike - will get a helluva lot from it.
