The Soaring Cafe broke 1,000 visits for a single day yesterday. The site is more than exceeding our expectations and we want to thank everyone who has stopped by to take a look and read an article -- "Thank you!" We hear from people every day telling us how much they like the site and encouraging us to do more.
This site depends on you. The soaring community is hungry for interesting things to read about. Many of you provide articles and stories for your local club, your national organization, and other magazines and newspapers. Please consider writing for the Cafe or republishing here. You and your friends may have seen an article somewhere but the rest of the world is eager to read about it too.
We have a world-wide audience and I would like to share some of our first month's statistics with you. Below is a graph of our overall number of visits per day for the last month with some important stats. As you can see, we have had over 8,400 visits with nearly 34,000 page views.
Next, you can see from the map below that we truly do have a global following. We believe the only reason that the U.S. has the most visits is because we started here and have been drawing on our friends from the U.S. for articles. However, we want your articles too, wherever it is you live and fly.
As you can see, the European countries have been visiting the site in substantial numbers. Remember, this represents our first 25 days online. We would expect to see these stats swing more towards Europe leading the way with the most visits. Pass the word, share a link to our site, and send us your articles to help make this happen.
It is really quite fascinating to look at the statistics by country. Below are three more maps showing where the visits come from for Germany, The Netherlands, Denmark, and the United Kingdom.
We hope you have enjoyed seeing how many visitors we have from all over the world. Let us know what you think by providing a comment. And, if you haven't already, be sure to subscribe to our Daily Digest email to always know what's happening at the Cafe.
