WHR On Line stays busy



The end of The Celebration and the surge of interest that follows it usually gives way to a slowdown in internet traffic but not this year.  Last week The Report site had almost 300,000 hits from 13,745 registered users who spent almost  7 1/2 minutes each viewing portions of the site.

This figures out to 42,528 hits per day from an average 1,963 users.  Monday was the busiest day with 2,312 users while Saturday was the slowest with 1,538 registered users.  More importantly, the site now has 10,851 registered users, over a 1,000 user gain since just before Celebration.

The increase in traffic was most noticable in the Board posting section of the site where many new users are finding a place to share thoughts and opinions.  "We have not put an emphasis on the message boards in the past but it  is now obvious to us that there is a growing need in this area", said Dabora President David L. Howard.  "We are pleased to fill this  need    and  are looking at ways to do an even better job on our site in the future.  We appreciate the overwhelming support of the site and of the High Point Report program."
