SQUASH SITE™ : MOVING FAST…
As we are
approaching our first anniversary, we thought we should have a
roundup on SquashSite™.
If we were quite happy with our stats up to the summer break, with
figures of 193,000 unique visitors, 800,000 pages and 8.5 million
hits in May, we are stunned by the start of the new season where we
reached unprecedented figures for the internet squash world of
350,000 unique visitors, 1.3 million page impressions, and 14.5
million hits for October.
As far as our coverage goes, we are read in 65 countries,
with 70% of our visitors from outside the UK, and SquashSite
fans in North America increasing from 20% to 30% since May.
We also believe we won our “badge of honour” when the world famous
l’Equipe quoted our articles and referred to us as “le site
de reference” a few days ago…
Also, after designing and managing this year the official
websites for the British Junior Open (ES), The Nationals
(Manchester), The Premier Squash League (ES), Head UK Grand Prix
(BSPA), Super League (GB), the English Open (Eventis), the Berkshire
Open (USA), the Hedonism II Open (Jamaica), the Dunlop British Open
(iSport Marketing), we have been asked to handle the brand new five
star ISS Canary Wharf Classic on behalf of Eventis and SquashUK.
Another achievement we take pride in, we’ve finally laid to rest the
“Vicky Botwright” record. During the 2001 British Open where the
gorgeous girl was in all the National Papers, 52,000 people clicked
on to view in a single day, a record that stood until now. Well,
we broke that record several times during the Dunlop British Open,
and established a new record of 92,800 on finals day. Sorry
We are also very happy to have welcomed on our pages some
advertisers, PokerRoom.com, FeatherSports.com, Puresquash.com,
and our last arrival, David Palmer,
who have been kind enough to trust us to promote their products,
helping us to develop our journalists and photographers in more and
more countries, and to report onsite from around the world.
As well as all this, our
shop has just been launched, with DVDs from
Eventis/Guide-to-Squash, WISPA events, Chris Walker
and the famous Jean De Lierre, and in the “Sports Goods”
section, special deals from SportDiscount.com that will allow
SquashSite™ readers to get some pretty interesting bargains…
And there’s much, much more to come, starting with the maddest
enterprise we’ve ever attempted, the Big Four, as we call
them, as I've been invited to the Qatar Classic, the Hong Kong
World Opens, the Islamabad World Men’s Team Championship, and the
Saudi International ...
So, thanks to you all to read us, day after day. Your support is
incredible, and Steve and I are grateful beyond belief...
Internet and squash, a winning combination?
Bet your racquet it is…
