January 8, 2016 — According to AWStats Analytics which is the independent website monitoring service we use to assess our readership STATS (aka: audience), during our slowest month of the year (Dec 2015) 67,401 individual readers visited InsideTheGate.com (ITG) during the Holiday period. Those sets of ‘eyeballs’ consumed 103.19 GB of bandwidth resulting in 2,013,387 page views (PV) as they absorbed information about our global industry. And though that may not be of interest to most of our audience those PV’s break down to 29.87 PVs per reader so if you are a developer or ancillary company within our niche industry you might find that of special interest for your business.
So Here’s The Scoop: Now in our 7th year we are, to the best of my knowledge, the only timeshare industry publication that faithfully publishes new press releases six (6) days per week, along with breaking industry new stories as they happen, weekly columns and articles exclusive to InsideTheGate.com (ITG) — and we have set yet another milestone that could be of interest as well.
And that benchmark is simply that 2015 marks the 6th consecutive year that Google has ranked ITG as Number 1 (1st page, 1st result) for those searching for Timeshare News and/or Timeshare Blog(s).
Another record we hit last month (December 2015) benefited our advertising clients as their banner ads were seen, for the first time, over 2+ Million Times in just 31 days. That means over 2,000,000 page views per client.
That is important because each client’s banner is stationary on every page throughout ITG including our very popular blog section The Gatehouse. So all those 2+ Million PV’s equate to 2 Million + Ad impressions for ITG clients.
From ITG’s front (home) page throughout the entire publication, on every news story, every PR, every column, every article and on every archived page whereby readers use the ITG search tool for their enjoyment, curiosity or research – our clients’ ads are there, on thousands of those pages as well.
That is why, with very limited banner space, ITG has and continues to guarantee ITG clients maximum exposure and guaranteed visibility which is also why some ITG client’s have been and are continuous advertisers since our humble beginnings in 2009.
And on that note ITG, as of today, has only one prime (top-fold) space available for a banner so if your company needs exposure to the ‘deciders’ within our worldwide industry the smart money in advertising is to be where the ‘eyeballs’ are, be there continuously, and often change and/or update the ‘message’ to your niche–targeted audience.
So, if your company needs more ‘business’ then contact the ITG ad department today and ask Bill and his team to design an effective results-oriented promotion campaign that meets your approval, goal and objectives.
Just think of it as having a retail location with thousands and thousands of your market walking by your store-front location, window shopping on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, California each week.
