So that was May. A pretty good month really.

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

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

Visits: 159,561, up from 157,309
Pageviews: 446,847, up from 426,217
Absolute unique visitors: 64,464, up from 64,060

Happy happy joy joy.


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, and the chance to win some pretty good give-aways.

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:

So the 20 most read stories on RiotACT in April were:

    1. Richardson roadside shrine removed – Good or bad thing?
    2. Canberra’s Charmyne Palavi hits the big time

Assuming you mean “Overlord”, yes, there’s the whole RiotCabal.
You can meet them at Riot events, some of them even buy pints.

Someone was hunting for my Qbn Big Poo story! Maybe I’d better not delete those pix from my photobucket site just yet. I may be nominated for a Walkley.

With tania tominac holding down the number one spot from RA favourite charmyne palavi.
