Thank you all 41,530 Unique Visitors to CFN in January! Numbers and Stuff – February 2, 2013

CFNlogoCFN – It’s been a record setting month for your favorite  newspaper in Eastern Ontario!   CFN drew 1,779,374 page views. Sadly ad Agency Zenith Media doesn’t consider us a media outlet and said we don’t even appear on Alexa!    Yet another slight to your INTENSELY LOCAL Independent Newspaper which is being snubbed by the Province of Ontario’s ad agency of choice.
