Mywelshpool has hit a double milestone, and we can’t thank you enough for your support.
Over the past few days, your favourite source of local news and sport received its two millionth page view and this morning (Tuesday), we reached another incredible mark when our 10,000th unique user logged onto the site in the space of a month.
It is the first time that we have reached this monthly mark and is an increase of almost 30% compared to the same period last year. In simple terms, it means that 10,000 desk top computers, lap tops, smart phones and tablets have logged on to mywelshpool since March 11.
While this astonishing growth underlines our popularity, it coincides with the release of the latest figures from the publishing industry which showed the alarming slide in local newspaper sales continues.
“Who would have thought 20 months ago when we launched that we would have enjoyed such a phenomenal growth?” said co-founder David Williams.
“To think that 10,000 visitors are now logging on every single month is astonishing when you consider the population of the area that we are reaching out to and the lack of decent broadband coverage.
“But we don’t take the support of people from the Welshpool area for granted and we will continue to work around the clock to deliver the latest news and sport... and of course it will always be delivered for free!”
The popularity of Twitter and Facebook locally is a major contributor to the growth with a combined total of 3,000 followers on both social media platforms receiving tweets and alerts of breaking and latest news.
The figures also show a sharp increase in the number of readers now accessing the site using smart phones like iphones and Blackberrys. Ipad user numbers are also on the rapid rise.
It is great news for our loyal advertisers who, without them, we simply could not survive and all we ask you to do is to have a look and click on their banners to find out more. They are all local businesses offering services that you require so please support them like they support us in serving you.
Here are the figures provided to us by Google as we approached the two million milestone and passed 10,000 monthly users.
