Panama Guide Hits 100,000 Unique Visitors Per Month in January 2010!

What is PG? By DON WINNER for - A lot of things came together to make January 2010 a great month for website traffic. Former presidents getting tossed into the clinker, city-wide raids against hookers and prostitutes, the brand-new FIS scandal, the political maneuvers to force Panama's Attorney General getting forced out of office, and even a Puerto Rican (gringo) involved in an attempt to kidnap president Ricardo Martinelli. Mix all of that interesting news together with the arrival of dry season and fantastic summer-time weater, hundreds of thousands of tourist arrivals - and a swarm of earthquakes in Chiriqui. Yup, there was zooks of fodder for the "guide" this month and thankfully you all responded by checking in to see what was going on. According to the "Site Meter Gold Chart" which we have always used to gauge website traffic, in January 2010 more than 100,000 different people (unique visitors) came to the website to follow the news and current events in English in the Republic of Panama. This is the first time in the five and a half year history of this website that we've eclipsed that mark, so of course it's a gratifying accomplishment. By way of comparison on the same scale we saw 75,655 unique visitors in January 2009 and an increase to 100,533 in January 2010, representing a 32.8% increase in traffic to the website, year on year. Hey, I'll take a 32% growth in traffic from one year to the next, anytime. Remember that in September 2009 I was celebrating over seeing an average of 87,361 uniques over a six month average. Well, over the past six months we've averaged 91,047 based on data from this same source, even though a relatively crappy month of December kinda screws the pooch a little in there. Anyway, pardon me whist I tweet my own horn a little. Advertisers - don't forget to send me those press releases. It looks like the Panamanian economy and real estate markets are starting to jump again, so let's get busy... Anyway, Gertrude Hoffmaster says "thanks, guys." And here's a teaser - there's a "community bombshell" coming in February but I just can't talk about it yet. Stay tuned.

It is much better than reading Eric Jackson's way, way over the cliff left rag.
"forget the truck. Everybody can buy a truck."
