Community Website sees record visitors

Peterborough Community Website - www.peterborough.net - now in it's sixth year of promoting Peterborough online, has seen a progressive increase in visitors during 2003. But July 2003 statistics broke all records with a massive 51,000+ visitors for the month, almost 16,000 per month more than the same period in 2002.

The 51,236 visitors, some of whom are from all over the world, viewed a total of 242,535 pages over the month, giving a total of 3.1 million pages loaded in the last 12 months!

Community Site content manager, Jenny Mogford said: "We're delighted with the figures, we hope that our changing content, directory of local websites, voluntary columnists and contributors, will encourage more return visits in the future."

The site is quite unique generating a local online community of regular visitors, without the support of any other more traditional media. Many businesses have found this a productive way to promote their business via banner advertising, which in turn supports the website.

It also attracts potential visitors to the city, both business and pleasure and has referred more than 2,500 visitors to the Positively Peterborough site since sporting the logo on the homepage. The website team have also helped many over the years by sharing personal local knowledge via email or referring people to those who can provide the information requested.

"These visitor figures are actually quite exceptional for an independent Community website of this type." Jenny continued.

"Our support of local events and ventures such as The Willow Festival and Diesel City Radio, have given us a little extra boost during July, but we're confident our success will continue."
