Monthly figures are posted on the Top Twenty page.  Current average is 56,086 user sessions per month. Web page views are averaging 264,352. These numbers reflect a 12% increase in users over 2012 and a less than 1% decrease in page views from 2012. Our unique visitor average for 2013 increased by 13.6%. 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.
