People often ask how many people really visit philadelphiarams.com. And so today we give you a peak behind the curtain and tell you some intersting statistics regarding our little web site that could.
Philadelphiarams.com is a site with a target audience of about 30 people, all of whom play for the Penguins, Rams, or Lagerheads. Despite such a small defined audience the site has become more popular than anyone could have ever imagined. People visit from Florida, Illinois, Michigan and even Europe.
In 2005 the site was visited 12,831 times, the peak being September when as the new NHL was in its ultimate frenzy we saw 2,280 visitors.
And people came with a voracious appetite for hockey news and pure goofiness, the site recorded over 145,000 page views in 2005 and saw page views grow each month.
We also seem to be an egotistical bunch as only the schedule page was visited more often than the statistics page.
In late 2005 Philadelphiarams.com started to get picked up by search engines like Google, MSN, and Yahoo!. It was interesting to see some of the search terms that had people landing at the site:
- carter leonards
- puck bunnies
- signs and symptoms of the sports hernia
- elisha cuthbert
- girlfriend coddaire
- jenn sterger
All in all, a very impressive year for philadelphiarams.com, and if the early January numbers are any indication, 2006 will be even bigger.
