These figures were created by the AWStats program offered online by our web host.  We also track usage with Google Analytics.

Monthly figures are posted on the Top Twenty page.  Current average is 52,134 user sessions per month. Web page views are averaging 232,534. These numbers reflect a 10.8% increase in users over 2012 and a less than 1% decrease in page views from 2012. Our average unique visitors for 2013 increased by 19%. Our core local pages have remained strong and we have seen an uptake in new hits to additional pages, thanks to our redesign. Overall, our sponsors have gained much greater value, due to the exposure of their logos on each page sidebar in the new layout.

4th Quarter 2013 - Quarterly figures for user sessions increased by 5% from 3rd Quarter and were up 25% over the same time period last year, the largest increase in this figure since 2008. Page views improved in the 4th quarter, with a 25% increase over the same time period in 2012. This is a more volatile figure and often sees peaks and dips.

Did You Know?

Richmond was once known as "the lawnmower capital" because of the lawn mowers manufactured here from the late 19th century through the mid-20th century. Manufacturers included Motomower, Dille-McGuire and F&N.
