Log Analysis
Ran weekly and posted on the Members Only page.  Weekly averages are1844 visitors and 5128  hits. February figures were up significantly, 28% on user sessions and 35% on page views.  The introduction of a local news section, in cooperation with our Sponsor, WQLK/WHON, has encouraged return visitors.  Fourth quarter figures are quite impressive with 43% increase in user sessions and 22% increase in hits.  I expect another significant jump in 1st quarter figures.
