This evening, with three days still to run in September, JOINT-FORCES.com has just achieved 100,000 page views in a single month for the first time.
When we created this website in early March, following the sudden and unexpected demise of COMBAT & SURVIVAL Magazine when its new owners put the publishing house into Liquidation after 30 years in print, we hoped we might achieve 100,000 page views in our first six months. Knowing how difficult C&S had found it to attract a measurable online following over the last few years we thought we might have a battle on our hands, but as we had nothing to lose and everything to gain we carefully selected our targets and commenced operations.
Fortunately many of our friends in the trade threw their support behind us, for which we are truly grateful, and allowed us to create JOINT-FORCES.com as a Free2View resource without any need to buy an App and without any annoying pop-up advertising. If readers want to read an advert or go to our Sponsors’ websites they have to consciously click on the link rather than having a distraction popping up to spoil their reading; this is the way I prefer to do my web surfing and I suspect the type of person viewing this specialist website won’t be too keen on having adverts for fake Russian brides or possibly dodgy dating and gambling sites interfering with their viewing either.
Earlier today we went through the 400,000 cumulative page views mark and around 20:25 BST this evening we racked up an incredible 100,000 page views for September alone, so we have now (briefly) gone into party mode. Both Ramilla and Jitka keep telling me that Thursday is the new Friday, so for once I am going to follow their advice and take a few hours down time.
Next week is going to be another busy one for us, so watch out for plenty of fresh content on JOINT-FORCES.com during October!
