CFN –  Those were the top ten items you were reading on The Cornwall Free News yesterday!   It’s been a crazy ride this week.   We’re working on a lot of stories that will be coming out soon.   I’ve been dealing with a full fledged attempt to kill CFN from the Cliques here in Cornwall; but the amazing thing is that you really find out who digs you when a crisis hits and that’s been amazingly uplifting!

It also finally outs certain people so we know who to work towards not getting re-elected if we can’t work with others to remove them first.

Our crack media consulting team is starting to canvas Cornwall for support for our Spotlight Cornwall digital magazine that’s coming out this spring.

What makes our area special, from businesses to athletes, and just about everything in between will be featured in hi quality photo spreads and videos.

Stay tuned for more updates and if you wish to speak with one of our team email or call our hotline at 613 361 1755.   There really is so much more to Cornwall than friends and family of the clique!    Spotlight Cornwall I think will really change how some people look at our amazing city!

Yes Virginia, we are back at number one amongst news sites here in Cornwall, and that includes hubs that love aggregation!   According to Alexa we get the 8th most web traffic from Cornwall, more than any other media site by a wide margin!

1)  2,369 Alexa Canadian Ranking

2)  Standard-Freeholder 2,620 Alexa Canadian Ranking

3) Our Home Town (Aggregation hub) 2,835 Alexa Canadian Ranking

4) The Cornwall Daily 6,686 Alexa Canadian Ranking

5) The Local Seeker 12, 324  Alexa Canadian Ranking

6) Cornwall Seaway News 19, 363

Since all intense focus locally started we seem to have attracted a lot of  the “Old Boys” to our viewership.

Compared with internet averages,’s audience tends to be users who have incomes between $60,000 and $100,000; they are also disproportionately moderately educated men browsing from work who have more children. 

Of course you have to dig through numbers sometimes to make sense.  For example if only 60% of traffic comes from Canada or your region that’s very different if another site has 85% of their traffic locally.   And of course what those percentages mean in real numbers is a whole other story!
