1,373,750 Page Views in June 2012 – Cornwall Free News by the Numbers and Top Ten & 20

CFN –  I know there are tons of outlets with way more traffic than us, but in three short years what was abusively called a “blog” and that web thing by certain people in power in this city has evolved.

Frankly far more than this humble scribbler ever thought it would and that could not happen with those of you out there that clicked on The Cornwall Free News 1,373,750 times in June.   Add in our traffic on Social networking site and that adds up to over two million ringing of our collective bells.

So thank you to all out there who made it possible.  While I know many are not “fans” of CFN all are welcome!

Frankly what I’m most proud of is that we’ve been able to build those numbers up here in Canada.   Over 95% of CFN’s traffic is home grown!

Roughly 95% of visitors to the site come from Canada, where it has attained a traffic rank of 2,210. Visitors to the site spend roughly 32 minutes per visit to the site and 72 seconds per pageview. Compared with internet averages, Cornwallfreenews.com’s audience tends to be users who have incomes between $30,000 and $100,000; they are also disproportionately moderately educated men browsing from work who have more children. 

And that could be why we’re the number one ranked online media site in Eastern Ontario!*

  1. Goes to show you that having a vision and sticking to your principles is an unstoppable force in life, I would challenge business people to support this online media as it is a force for good simply because it offers a platform for everyone to speak and is moderated fairly. Good for you for being transparent, serves as a model for others.
