Running "WEATHER mentions" once a week, 6 times a day on KICKS96 through the end of February.
Received article in the Chamber's Pal-Item insert in January - good response.

Log Analysis for January.
Ran weekly and posted on the Members Only page.  Monthly user sessions increased 25% over December 99 and page views increased 35% over December 99.  January figures reflect a 196% increase over the same time last year.

1999 Yearly Figures show an outstanding 100,426 users requesting 310,586 pages.  It's difficult to do a true comparison as we did not purchase the logging software until mid-February '99, but a rough estimate is that we nearly tripled our visitors/hits from the previous year.
