I find it interesting to compare our stats with others ... here, from a circular email from VisitWiltshire

VisitWiltshire Website

During June we had over 72.5k unique visitors to the website, 149k-page views and 82% new visitors. Top referral was Flipboard with just under 2k users and the top page was ‘What’s On’ with nearly 12,000 views.

And my comparison:

Over the last 4 weeks we have had over 6.3k unique visitors to the website, 139k-page views and 86% new visitors. Top arrivals were via organic search (3.5k) with referrals accounting for just under 0.5k users.  Our top boards for views were "Across the West", "Bristol Commuters" and "Fare's Fair".

They're a 'big' promotion outfit and we're 'just' a volunteer run forum, so not sure how fair the comparison is.

I note that each of their visitors looked at just 2 pages.

What is "Flipboard"?

Coffee Shop Admin, Vice Chair of Melksham Rail User Group, and on the board of TravelWatch SouthWest.

My quickest-ever google search suggests that Flipboard is this:

It is installed by default on my phone, and picks up news stories it thinks I might find interesting... sometimes it's even right!

You can find out more about how this forum works [here] - that will link you to a copy of the forum agreement that you can read before you join, and tell you very much more about how we operate. We are an independent forum, provided and run by customers of Great Western Railway, for customers of Great Western Railway and we welcome railway professionals as members too, in either a personal or official capacity. Views expressed in posts are not necessarily the views of the operators of the forum.

As well as posting messages onto existing threads, and starting new subjects, members can communicate with each other through personal messages if they wish. And once members have made a certain number of posts, they will automatically be admitted to the "frequent posters club", where subjects not-for-public-domain are discussed; anything from the occasional rant to meetups we may be having ...
