CORNWALL Ontario – It’s time for our August 2014 Lihou Report; named after Seaway News Editor Todd Lihou, who raved about their numbers without really giving any numbers. His narrative inspired this new name change in our numbers reporting as CFN has always tried to be upfront about the support we get from you; our amazing viewers!
We had a busy month of August at CFN central and in more ways than one!
The Freeholder and CFN have had Alexa ranking spikes in August! As of press time:
CFN: Cdn ranking 3,270 DPV 3.8 TOS 5.48 DPV is Daily Page Views per Visitor. TOS is Time on Site per visitor
SF: Cdn ranking 5,334 DPV 2.3 TOS 3:22 (SUN MEDIA)
Seaway News: Cdn ranking 20,040 DPV 1.30 TOS 1:54 (TC MEDIA)
It’s why some media don’t give out numbers. They use terms, as Mr. Lihou did, without giving numbers. It’s a bit tawdry and misleading which is why we publish real verifiable numbers.
