It is not an exact science, however it is the simplest way to gauge the popularity of one website to the next.
A few months ago The Seeker gave it’s print newspaper and it’s website a make-over, we have been working hard to improve content, and improve our social media presence. The hard work is paying off, our web traffic has grown exponentially! We even have a new URL! We are now theseeker.ca (and no longer thelocalseeker.com).
We have an average of over a thousand visitors a day, and 55.7% are from Cornwall Ontario! Our reach in Cornwall and outside the City are both growing. Here is a list of the top ten cities our web page reaches.
1. Cornwall Ontario
2. Ottawa Ontario
3. Montreal Quebec
4. Toronto Ontario
5. Kingston Ontario
6. Milton Ontario
7. Brockville Ontario
8. Gatineau Quebec

This is an amazing accomplishment! However at the end of the day we can’t focus too much on rankings, we need to keep focusing on creating the best possible product we can for our readership.
Thank you everyone for reading the Seeker in print and online, and thank you for making us #1 among all media in Cornwall Ontario on the web in Canada.
