So June is done and dusted.

Here’s our monthly look at where the site is going, where it’s been and what brings people here.

Key Stats:

(Note: These statistics are prepared by Google Analytics and compare the 30 days of June to the previous 30 days)

Visits: 161,102, up from 156,195
Pageviews: 458,489, up from 437,973
Absolute unique visitors: 58,489, down from 63,107

So the reader’s we’ve got are reading more. Hooray! Will have to keep an eye on where the unique numbers go next month. June did happily lack dramatic killings.


While I’ve got you here a few house-keeping announcements.

If you’re one of the tens of thousands of Canberrans enjoying reading RiotACT perhaps you should consider supporting us?
