Independent monitoring of our magazine website indicates that online readership is growing. Not only are more than 9,000 people visiting the website each month, but theyre spending more time at the site.
This information should be of interest to online advertisers, industry associations and other groups. Many companies and organizations build websites, but the problem is attracting visitors. Thats why they often seek to establish a presence on high-traffic websites that are directed at a specific target audience. Not only does out website attract lots of visitors, but the vast majority are customers for the waste management and environmental protection business not an easy group to reach via general-interest websites.
Here are some highlights for Solid Waste & Recycling magazine and also sister publication HazMat Management magazine. These highlights come from independent monitoring conducted by WebTrends Analytics for the month of April, 2007 (for Solid Waste & Recycling magazine) and March, 2007 (for HazMat Management magazine).
