The site has been operating since 2003. However, we started reported monthly website visitor stats from 9th january 2010 when the site was moved to a new server..
How we calculate our stats
Our stats are raw stats taken from our server. We do not like some sites calculate the stats add in our newsletter subscribers and divide by the number of months. Please ensure you calculate like for like.
The best way to compare our stats with those of our competitors is to use the alexa tool. This may not be 100% accurate but it does compare on a like for like basis. Alexa is owned by Amazon and have a way of calculating visitors to any website
Our newsletter stats are available separately. We send one email a month to our members. There are not added to the stats shown on our web reports..
