With this article, the online version of the Seaside Gazette reaches the 3,000 mark, after starting out in April 2009. With around 150 visits a day, the up-to-date online version of the Seaside Gazette is not only growing in size, but it is also growing in popularity.
This comes on the very eve of the 10th Anniversary of the hard-copy of the Seaside Gazette – Martin’s first Gazette as Editor was January 2003. It will also mark the 20th Anniversary of the Gazette, going back to when Collin and Georg started it in 1993.
In May this year we swapped over from seasidegazette.es to theseasidegazette.com, which dropped traffic momentarily, but since we began in April 2009 until the switch over in May 2012, we had had just over a quarter of a million page views (258,818) and since then, we have added nearly another 80,000. All told we’ve had 88,369 visits since the online site was founded,
Who visits www.theseasidegazette.com? Well, 37,227 visits have come from the UK, followed by Spain with 25,600 visits. Then 4,004 visits from the USA, 2,507 from Canada and 3,016 from Denmark. In the case of the USA, a little over 50% have been since May this year.
Anyway, we shall be celebrating these significant anniversaries at the Seaside Gazette and we would like to thank both our online and hard-copy readers for choosing the our magazine as a relevant news source.
