Hi all the IT nerds 040_nerd.gif.a6a4f823734c8b20ed33654968aaa347.gif (I am one so don't knock us)


Last week I turned on the stats reporting for the site just out of curiosity as the traffic bill is so high I thought I would see why - low and behold I was surprised to see that Recreational Flying receives around 120,000 hits per day ...that's not per month or even per week but that's PER DAY!!! and that doesn't include the search bots like google etc - see attached screen shot.


That's over 3.5 Million hits per month - not bad for a little Aussie site for all Recreational Pilots - this is why our traffic bill is climbing every month - but it's a good bill


The target now is to get it to 150,000 hits per day (4.5m per month), why...because that means more and more recreational pilots are helping each other more and more...oh, and maybe I could sell some advertising space 006_laugh.gif.0f7b82c13a0ec29502c5fb56c616f069.gif

No Nev, not that I can see - given the huge traffic numbers, hits, unique visitors etc the site is going extremely well for a database driven one in terms of speed.

I think the way that the database was redesigned for version 4 has really helped although we did have some initial teething problems didn't we 006_laugh.gif.0f7b82c13a0ec29502c5fb56c616f069.gif


There is still so much more to do though 031_loopy.gif.e6c12871a67563904dadc7a0d20945bf.gif

Good on ya Ian,


The proof is in the figures, well done this is all your doing aswell as the helpers. It's good to see a site getting hits because of the good content not for the other reasons.

Here is an update on the Stats


Just for the last 19 days of November we had:


- Over 12,000 unique visitors to Recreational Flying


- Over 2.3 million hits (for just 19 days 011_clap.gif.c796ec930025ef6b94efb6b089d30b16.gif)


Attached is the sceenshot - thankyou all, you are making this site the number 1 resource for ALL recreational pilots, aircraft owners and aviation enthusiasts


and...we are not stopping there - work has already commenced on bringing the site together in a more user friendly manner whilst at the same time completing everything that is currently unfinished plus more - attached is also a screen shot of the new look and oh, there is also a "lite" version for those on dial up plus we are looking at a mobile phone sized version of Recreational Flying - and for those that were here nearly 5 years ago may possibly say "Hey, that looks like the site when it first started" - I suppose what goes around comes around 006_laugh.gif.0f7b82c13a0ec29502c5fb56c616f069.gif but what has changed is over 2.3 million hits over 19 days :thumb_up: :thumb_up: :thumb_up:

It can't be 5 years Ian... that means I'm getting old!

Yes Adam, it will be 5 years in Feb that Rec Flying has been going - you may be getting old but the 5 years has "made" me old 006_laugh.gif.0f7b82c13a0ec29502c5fb56c616f069.gif
