Ballina Info Traffic Statistics (January – October)

Over the past six or seven years Ballina Info has established itself as the premier source of online information about Ballina and its surrounding areas.  To date we have always looked upon Ballina Info as being somewhat of a community service and hence probably haven’t given it the time it justifiably deserves.  This is all about to change! 

Over the past month we have regularly discussed what to do with Ballina info and have come to the conclusion that we need to turn it into a viable business model which will allow us to reinvest our time and resources into making it a much more feature and content rich experience.

To give you a bit of an idea of how the site is performing I thought I would throw together some quick numbers on traffic to date this year.  All the statistical information comes from Google analytics, which is a must have tool for any website owner.
