" Freerails broke another of its own stats. records again yesterday

With the greatest number of users online   EVER  !


The most users ever online was 1138 on Tue Jan 14th, 2020


The Sites internet bandwidth had to be increased several times last year

So now when the large surges come we are ready for them !


Our surge numbers are now about 3 times higher than they were a year ago "


- - - - -


The above stats. are quoted from Post No.62 on Page 7



:shocked:



When I Posted the stats. above, back in  Post No.62 on Page 7 

I honestly didn't think it was ever going to be possible to beat that number online


Well I was wrong !


As some of you may have noticed from the stats. shown on the Freerails Home Page

The previous greatest number of users online  EVER  !  was beaten in October !


'The most users ever online was 1244 on Fri Oct 30th, 2020'



:shocked:



As you might expect from such large numbers of users online

They ramp up the number of Page Views, as they are looking at all your great Pages !


So in October the previous record for the number of Page Views, was NEARLY beaten

But in the month of November just gone, the number of Page Views record WAS BROKEN !


932,737     October       2020

975,276     November    2020


The previous record number of Page Views in a month was  934,736  in January 2019



:shocked:



January 2019  was an absolutely totally fantastic month stats. wise for Freerails

But a very difficult one for other reasons as well


By the end of January 2019, we had the highest number of Page Views in a month EVER !

It was thought that Freerails would reach  1,000,000  MILLION  Page Views by the end of January


But with this massively increased traffic & usage, came the unforeseen problem of bandwidth

The more folks that are clicking & looking, the more bandwidth Freerails needs to have


On 3 occasions during January 2019 Freerails tripped the Sites bandwidth overload-switch

This resulted in the Site being off-air for 3 periods of about  12  &  6  &  6  hours each


Users may or may not have noticed these off-air periods depending on when they logged in

But the 3 off-air periods totaled 1 whole day between them whilst the overload was dealt with


Total Page Views for January over the last few years


355,133    January    2015

417,368    January    2016

443,108    January    2017

527,397    January    2018

934,736    January    2019


As you can see Freerails didn't quite make the cool MILLION mark in January 2019

But the Site was off-air for 24 hours during the course of the month due to the bandwidth issues


Had Freerails been on-air 24/7 as per usual, could the Site have made the magic  1,000,000  MILLION ?

Who knows "


- - - - -


The above stats. are quoted from Post No.52 on Page 6



:cool:



Keep clickin'

We might possibly get a  1,000,000 MILLION  in December or January !


:f:


Eddie

WOW !  :shocked:

Traffic from folks viewing Freerails Pages has never ever been busier !


I don't think I've EVER peeked at the stats. before that month is over before.

But out of curiosity I did today, not even 9 full days into the month yet.


Page Views SO FAR this month, with LESS THAN 1/3 of it gone

496,724 

Incredible !  :pop:


:f:


Eddie

If you Google a topic, say "What Is Gn15 Scale" by David, you'll often find something linked to Freerails.

It seems there are a lot of people out there searching for topics on model railroading.

The wealth of information that is available here makes it hard for any modeler to pass up.

I'd like to see more visitors converted into Members.

" I'd like to see more visitors converted into Members "


Hi Michael  :wave:


In answer to your ^^ wish, I can say with confidence ...

... that a great many visitors ARE converted into Members.


I have been creating & sending out New Memberships ...

... since 11th December 2016, for exactly 4 years TODAY !


In those 4 years, I have created & sent out 439 New Memberships ...

... just under 100 New Memberships requested this year alone.


They are all requests by folk, that have sent 'real' eMails to Freerails ...

... many including detailed modeling histories, photos & even CVs !


I am honored to receive these 'real' requests, from 'real' people ...

... these are not just some superficial 'thumbs-up' Facebook garbage.


I could say more on Membership, following my 4 years experience ...

... but I'm sure much of what I'd say, is perhaps fairly obvious.


:java: :cool:


Si.
