Now that 2010 season is finally over, it is time for us here at Turf Diseases to recap some of the highlights from the past year. This week I will bring you some "Top Lists" for the website. I am happy to say that we have branched out beyond just what happens here in the United States. To the right you can see that although our focus audience is here in the states, we are reached 130 countries/territories in 2010.
Over 57,000 visitors (over 24,000 unique visitors) frequented the site last year (figure below). It was clear that there were a few hot spots in terms of times to visit. Needless to say it is obvious that things were tough in July and August and this caused many of you to I assume check out what was happening around your region and with other golf course superintendents as well.
The 2010 Top 10 List...
Some other things of note coming up this week include my version of Letterman's Top 10 for the following categories:
Top referrers to the website in 2010 (some of you made the list!)
Top Posts of 2010 (based on your visits)
Top Visits by Country (see how your country stacks up)
Special Turf Nerd Post (you could probably do without seeing this one)
What the future holds...
The 2010 season marked the first full year of our existence and we couldn't be more happy with the results. In fact, the success of this little blog site has inspired me to expand in 2011 with the hopes of something big by 2012 (sponsors beware). If you have any ideas on how we can improve the site (big or small), please feel free to share it with us in the comments below!
