Sister City Explodes
Last week we have 18,217 pageviews. For those of you who want more precise numbers that translates to 8504 unique visitors, of which 4336 were returning vistors who have browsed the Sister City at least once before the previous week.
Now this is nothing like the ratings even the Stamp Collecting Network gets on TV, but its fairly significant for a blog such as ours. Considering we have been in business for only 10 months - and have no paid advertising out there - this is pretty good.
To give you some perspective - according to figures published by Blog Ads - our 18,217 pageviews is about 40% of the audience that LA Observed - which has been around several years longer than us gets. It put us within about 3000 pageviews received by another well known local blog, Boi From Troy.
However to boast even a bit more, our numbers put us AHEAD of the following blogs (again based on Blog Ad's stats):
we were featured on CNN, which did cause a big spike for us. In the previous week, we had around 7600 pageviews. This week, we've seen some dropoff, but the CNN publicity may have gained us many new readers as we are on track to do about 10,500 pageviews before Saturday.
Keep reading the Sister City. And thank you for your support! We promise to continue to bring you the latest and most interesting information about Los Angeles politics.
