Site Demographics and Advertiser Benefits
Most of our traffic (86.8 percent) comes from the United States, where we’re ranked 113,771 as of June 21, 2014, according to Alexa.com (see screenshot below).
Traffic took an inevitable decline in the ensuing summer months (this is a football site after all), but we were able to maintain a steady stream of traffic in May, June, July and August before things took off in the fall.
After accumulating over 1.4 million hits combined during football season (Sept ’13 to Jan ’14), we hauled in 225,000 pageviews in February before blowing up with over 825,000 hits in March 2014.
So what’s the most traffic we’ve ever received in a single day?
On October 16, 2013, we racked up over 22,000 unique visitors and over 44,000 hits. Two days later, we shattered both records with over 55k unique visitors and 118,000 pageviews, according to Sitemeter.
We broke both records again on March 17, 2014, surpassing 55,000 unique visitors for the second time with over a whopping 152,000 hits en route to our best week ever (see below).
