Traffic Report for March 2010 - Not Too Shabby

What is PG?By DON WINNER for - Here's the monthly story that never really changes too much. Traffic to the website continued to improve during the month of March 2010. According to the Sitemeter "Gold Chart" we saw 105,220 unique visitors during the month, a new record by that standard. We saw more than 100,000 unique visitors for the third month in a row. Last year in March 2009 we saw about 84,000 unique visitors, so therefore we saw an increase of about 25%, year on year. We had a good month for traffic but didn't break any records according to the AWStats program running on the server. For example we delivered more than 1.9 million articles to our readers but the record of 2.6 million set last month remains intact.

Are These Numbers Real? In short, I have no reason to lie about the level of traffic to my website. Anyone can access the "What Is Panama Guide" Category on this website, and there you can go back and see how traffic to the website has slowly grown over the past six years. For example you can see this article from 1 May 2005. Back then I was really happy (ecstatic) to have seen only 4,232 unique visitors, 8,424 visits, and delivered 35,788 pages to our readers. In comparing this month's traffic (pages delivered) to April 2005, we have seen a 5,353% increase in the past five years - not too shabby.

Outside, Third Party Verification: If you really want to, feel free to make use of independent, third party resources such as to compare websites. Those guys always tend to track my traffic about 10% to 15% low, but it's not a problem because they track everyone equally low, so when you're comparing two websites, one against the other, it balances out. is also useful for comparing websites. There are several people out there who are either mad for some reason or jealous, and they have a tendency to disparage and throw stones. I don't care about them or what they say. Rather I choose to focus my attention and only concern myself with my own business and the things I can influence. In short, I ignore the noise.

We're Still #1 - Far and Away: Nobody else even comes close. is far and away the first choice for English language news in the Republic of Panama. Bar none. Thank you all for making us #1. After almost six full years we are still here, plugging along.

I am very happy that was created and that I found it. I get to compare sources of information and receive a more clear picture of Panama. The commentary by you, Don, and all other members is, as we say these days, "priceless". Thank you.
