As of today, the Submarine Cable Networks website has been on for one year. The original goal for an open and free media and encyclopedia on the submarine cable industry and global capacity market leads me on and attracts hundreds and thousands of visitors, industry professionals and peers. After the first one-year running, this website has been recognized more and more as a leading and unique media on the submarine cable industry and global capacity market.
At this moment, as the Founder and Managing Editor of the Submarine Cable Networks, I, Winston Qiu, would like to express my most sincere thank to all the visitors, industry professionals and peers, especially those leaving your feedback and comments. All your kind words lead me on.
In this one-year running, the visitors to the Submarine Cable Networks cover more than 170 countries and regions worldwide, with the United States, Singapore, Hong Kong, India and the Unite Kingdom ranking in the top. And the breakdown details of visitors are shown in the following chart.
Among all the visitors, the New Visitors and the Returning Visitors amount to 63% and 37% respectively. There are some intensive readers and visitors, browsing dozens and even more than one hundred of webpages at one visit. I am glad the website is so attractive to some visitors.
And the daily website traffic is around 500 page views on an average, with a peak of 1065 page views on Jan 5, 2012 and 378 independent visitors on Nov 17, 2011.
Recording here this one-year performance, cheer. The road ahead will be long and the climb will be steep. We may not get there in one year, or even years' efforts, I have never been more hopeful than I am tonight that we will get there.
The kind sponsor and advertise are much appreciated.
