We just passed the 90 day mark by reaching another milestone - our 5,000th unique visitor. Even better, we have a long "dwell time" where readers are spending, on average, 4 minutes and 38 seconds per visit. We have served up over 27,000 page views since the end of August.
We have still not gotten a Google Page Rank but have moved up in Google for various searches of interest. The most important measure is our standing for the search term "New Rochelle" - we are #44 which means we will score very high for any keyword searches that include the keyword "New Rochelle" in it such as "New Rochelle" + "Trinity School" were we are ranked #5.
I am particularly happy to report that our effort to hold various administrators and board members to account is having an impact.
For "Richard Organisciak" we are #10 and for "Anthony Bongo" we are #6 which means we show up on the first page of their search results. For "Cindy Babcock Deutsch" we are #11 and #12. Some names or terms are common or apply to more than New Rochelle but even still we are high up for terms like "Marty Daly" (#75) and "Ward Acres" (#15).
We also now have 135 registered users!
