Internet traffic remains strong!



Traffic on Walking Horse Report On Line enjoyed another strong week.  For the seven day period August 8-14, the site had 344,905 hits from 16,651 visitors.  While this is a slight drop from last week, we expect our hits to exceed 500,000 for each week of the Celebration.

As usual, Monday was the biggest day with 66,152 hits from 2,906 visitors with an average visit lasting over 8 minutes.  For the week, WHR On Line averaged 49,272 hits and 2,378 visitors each day.

The three areas of the site attracting the most traffic were horse show results, news and the High Point Report.  In addition, activity and posting on the Message Boards showed a strong uptick.

The WHR On Line has posted and archived the results from 141 horse shows from 20 states already this year and we expect this number to approach 200 shows by year end.  Many people are checking results prior to the Celebration as well as how they have affected the high point totals.  Show results are printed on a weekly basis in the Walking Horse Report print edition and are kept active permanently on WHR On Line.

The results on line are interactive and searchable and visitors can check the show records by horses name, trainer, rider or owner.  We routinely get calls from print subscribers who are not Internet savvy requesting the show record of horses they are considering buying.

The Walking Horse Report now has the most comprehensive list of show results available from any source in the industry.  These results stretch back eight years to 1997 and provide our readers with a tremendous research capability for the breeding, showing and selling of Tennessee Walking Horses.
