Hoops.com.au stats report
Just some stats and bits and pieces regarding Hoops for anyone curious. I often tweet about Hoops traffic stats but rarely think to post it here.
Since the start of 2010, the site has had over 28 million pageviews. Monthly pageview counts in 2010 were around 250-300,000. In August 2015, we set a new site record with over 710k. The previous record was July 2015's 670k.
Currently averaging almost 200 posts per day.
Traffic is 93% Australian, followed by US (2%), NZ (1.8%), Canada, UK, Germany, Japan, Poland, China.
Within Australia, Victorian traffic now comfortably tops SA:
Vic - 33%
SA - 28%
NSW - 14%
WA - 14%
Qld - 9%
This is great. For some time, I've wanted those outside SA to feel comfortable posting about all levels of basketball specific to their region. Ideally, the state traffic breakdown would be more aligned with the population of each state or strength of basketball within.
I'm also happy to see more clubs posting coaching job announcements or junior trials here. At some point there might be enough to warrant treating them differently from general forum posts. Keep them coming.
There have been two offers to buy Hoops in the last few months.
