    Note that our unique visits are down significantly, likely due to our site being "dinged" by Google for not being "mobile-friendly".

    Historical Background

    The figures that were formerly in this section were created from the statistics generated by the AWStats program offered online by our web host.

    One of the major changes that occurred when AMHosting moved our site to a new server was that we no longer have access to AWStats, the statistics program we used for years.

    The downside is that we can no longer compare apples to apples when looking at our historical data. The good news is that we have had Google Analytics set up on the site for some time, so we can still maintain a long-term overview by looking at this service.
