2016 – a summary.

It’s been a great year for our website/blog.  We’ve had 15,914 visitors making 41,491 views.

We had our busiest day ever on April 24th when we had 476 views  – the day we published “Kinmel Park Camp”

The most popular day for visiting our site is a Sunday and the most popular hour is 9pm.

We had visitors looking at our site from 85 countries.  The top five were U.K., U.S.A., Australia, Canada and France, but we also had visitors from Mozambique, Uruguay, Kazakhstan and Iceland.  The map below illustrates where in the world we have been viewed.

wordpress-stats-1Our five most popular posts published this year were:
Kinmel Park Camp
Farewell to the Grange
The Cut
Farewell Old School – Welcome to the New
My Personal Memories of Rhyl

We published 43 posts.  Visitors found their way to us mainly via search engines (Google, Bing, Yahoo etc.), but also via Facebook, Twitter and links from other sites.

In November we were contacted by the National Library of Wales inviting us to participate in the UK Web Archive.  The UK Web Archive is a partnership between the National Library of Wales, the British Library and the National Library of Scotland, to preserve website for future users.  This means that an archived copy of our website will form part of their permanent collections.  Our site will remain accessible as hardware and software changes over time and it will also be catalogued through the websites of both the National Library of Wales and the UK Web Archive.

Going forward, we have included a page on our website for readers’ enquiries with a comments box included.  This is an experimental addition which will be reviewed over time.  We have also refreshed our “Links” page.

Many thanks to those who have contributed and to all you lovely readers.  We wish you a Happy, Healthy and Peaceful New Year. Blwyddyn Newydd Dda.
