Report on October activities

The decision to switch to a separate blog package (which can be accessed directly at www.hertfordshire-genealogy.blogspot.com) seems to be working well. There were 1358 page views in October. This figure counts viewing the main page (which can contain up to 10 posts) as one view, and it is clear that many visitors stayed and veiw multiple pages and also visited the main web site. While there has been a small decrease in the number of different people visiting the main web site compared with October 2010 there has been a small increase in return visits.

During the month the blog had page views by visitors from Australia (85), Austria, Bangladesh, Belgium, Canada (37), C├┤te d’Ivoire (38), Denmark (60), France, Germany, India, Ireland, Latvia, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands (24), New Zealand (10), Philippines, Romania, Russia (18), Singapore, Slovenia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain (26), Taiwan, United Kingdom (575), and United States (113).
