- 20Jun 8, '09 by brian, ADN AdminNot that it makes much of any difference, but our actual numbers are far higher according to our 3rd party traffic tools (google analytics). Traffic measuring sites like compete.com are more an estimate due to the fact that they don't have access to our actual numbers. But they are still quite valuable at giving a sample of the industry, as all numbers are probably skewed in a similar manner.
According to our charts, our growth has been 72.53%, still not to shabby Here is a graph comparison from April 2008 and April 2009.
April 2008: 668,136 Absolute Unique Visitors
April 2009: 1,152,745 Absolute Unique Visitors
I would just like to thank all the members of allnurses.com for spreading the word of mouth to their fellow nurses and colleagues. For Nursing Educators and Students for sharing allnurses.com with each other as a valuable tool.
I've said this before, but I will say it again... our great members and staff are what make allnurses.com such a wonderful community and I thank you all! Keep up the good work!Last edit by brian on Jun 8, '09
- 3Jun 8, '09 by miketempletonThanks for posting this story on your site. As I mentioned on our blog, I'd love to see more nurses from Iowa getting involved in your discussion area, but maybe we can help that along.
In regards to traffic, I think you make a good point as well. Website traffic is probably most accurate at the source, but without having that access these websites must find alternative methods for measuring inbound users.
Regardless of the numbers, I've got to congratulate you on breaking into the top ten list of professional social networks. It really is quite an achievement and a great reason for all members of allnurses to be proud.
