Does Anyone Visit the TRHA Website?
It turns out that a lot of folks on the Internet are following progress by the Toronto Railway Historical Association with the Toronto Railway Heritage Centre. This image displays web traffic statistics for our website.
We should ignore the numbers in the column at the right for "Jan (2010)" as those are only month to date numbers. Looking at the February (2009) through December (2009) statistics, we see that there has been a dramatic growth in folks visiting the site to learn about what we are doing and railway history as well. The mid-year surge in traffic correlates with the exciting move of the CN #6213 steam engine from the CNE to Roundhouse Park.
The website traffic figure most often used is "hits' (coloured "green" in the chart above) which sums up the number of specifc requests to our website for information. The peak hit rate shown in June was 623,668 "hits per month". If the December "hit rate" was maintained for a whole year, the annual number of "hits" would run almost 3,800,000 "hits per year".
As we move into an exciting new year for the TRHA and the TRHC, we would like to thank all of the folks out there who have contributed so much of the valuable information and images which we have posted on our website.
