GoSeeAustralia flies past 11m hits on a 'slow day' at the office

At midnight on October 31 GoSeeAustralia easily passed 1 million pages served to visitors to the web site for the month. To achieve that GoSeeAustralia had 11 million hits. That is conservatively 3000 'quality'visitors to the site in an average day and each visitor looked at an average of11 pages.

Despite the excitement and satisfaction of those magic numbers the 24 hours of October 31 on GoSeeAustralia was a slow day at our Fyshwick, ACT headquarters as GoSeeAustralia worked for its industry connections. 883 viruses were detected, 35,564 spam emails were blocked and 40,000 emails filtered as they came in. Only 3535 were allowed through as general emails.

As we said it was a slow day - we usually run at more than 60,000 emails a day. The 883 virus are the highest number we have detected in a 24 hour period. As GoSeeAustralia has mushroomed from about 43,000 pages served in July 2004 we are excited!

It is a huge growth spurt. GoSeeAustralia now has excellent analysis which shows beyond doubt that tourist information isbeing sourced at ahigh level through the Internet.

Caravan parksmusthave quality, easy to use web sitesif the caravan park isto remain competitive. GoSeeAustralia knows that the number of Online caravan park chain members is increasing.

That isa big benefit for travellers and caravan parksasbookings whicharemade on line remove any confusion about the accommodation which is provided, its costs, benefits and timing.

GoSeeAustralia passed 5 million hits in January 2005 with a high commendation from NetGuide magazine in the Best Lifestyle/Leisure site category of their Web Awards based on reader votes.

In July GoSeeAustralia hit the supercharger as we rushed past 6.1 million for the month.

In July visitors to GoSeeAustralia requested 583,776 pages for an average of 18,831 pages a day. User growth on GoSeeAustralia is astonishing when compared with 42,578 pages served to visitors soon after GoSeeAustralia went Online in July 2004.
