We’re now Google’s No 1!

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend


There’s no stopping mywelshpool as we charge towards receiving our 900,000th page view in just nine months!
Google, who we have worked with from day one to deliver our precise and honest visitor figures, has slotted us into the top of their charts for web users searching for ‘Welshpool news’.
It’s a remarkable achievement considering we are still only nine months old but it shows that we are now officially the most popular online source of local news in the area.
Trailing in our wake in second is the County Times, which delivers a healthy mix of Mid Wales-wide news once a week, with the Shropshire Star in third and BBC fourth.
For the first time a news service has dedicated itself to serving the Welshpool area and it continues to prove popular with readers and advertisers alike. So much so that our advertising space is now close to being completely sold out!
Our figures are staggering and we can’t thank you enough. Since we launched on August 13 last year, no less than 41,000 unique visitors have logged on a staggering 190,000 times and viewed 893,000 pages (source: Google Analytics). The average time a visitor spends on mywelshpool is just over five minutes, almost three-and-a-half minutes longer than visitors spend on the County Times web site (source: County Times).
And it is all down to you. Your support has blown us away here at mywelshpool and it gives us the enthusiasm and the energy to continue to serve you in the best way we can.
We may be new but our people are among the most respected in the business with an editorial team clocking up decades of local, national and international news experience, and our back office and designers hand picked from the very best.
Mywelshpool is your site. We listen to you and we are proud of our professional and transparent ethics. As newspaper sales slip week-on-week, our figures go from strength-to-strength and we will continue to remain at the leading edge of local media evolution.
Our Facebook group beats any letters page for entertainment value and the growing number of people following us on Twitter means that news has never been so current and instant.
And don’t forget our pledge... it will always be free!
Thank-you for your loyal support. It is very much appreciated and long may it continue!
