Well, that was a bell-ringing ball-tearer of a month. And now, the stats.

Here’s our monthly review of where the site’s going and what people are coming here for. March exceeded all expectations possibly to my detriment when the Easter-blighted April is tallied up and compared. A lot of you really seem to have a thing for crime and death.

Key Stats:

Visits: 161,187, up from 136,493
Pageviews: 470,448 up from 408,132
Absolute unique visitors: 63,549, up from 52,076

(Note: These statistics are prepared by Google Analytics and compare the 31 days of March to the previous 31 days)


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? You can just make a donation if you so choose.

Alternatively you could take out a premium subscription, and get the much sought after RiotACT pin, as well as some improved functionality from the site.

If you have goods or services to advertise, or a brand to build, you can advertise with us.

Failing that Facebookers can just become a fan. We like fans.

Fun stuff:

    1. The impact of the Wanniassa death
    2. Stolen police uniforms used for unsavoury dress-ups?
