Introduction
We'd like to thank everybody for their support of @LA. Not only has @LA become a popular cyberhangout for locals, but we've had users from over 50 countries visit us in recent months.

We have a sophisticated tracking system that summarizes hits by file, hour and user (IP address). Accordingly, we provide you with an overview of what we know about our site.

Our Stats
As of January 2003, between 250,000 and 300,000 visitors a month (not hits...users) visiting the home page of @LA and about 900,000 visits a month to all of our pages combined.

Every month we record 50,000 to 60,000 new users, namely users who have never visited our site before (based on IP address). We estimate that over the course of our existence, over 3,000,000 individuals have visted our site and we have 100's of thousands of regular users.

The average visitor looks at 3 to 5 pages during their stay.

Our user base has been increasing approximately 15%-25% every month.

Over 100,000 full text searches of @LA are performed every month.

50% of our daily accesses occur after 2PM Pacific Time.

California Lottery Page
Our California Lottery Page is rapidly gaining in popularity. We get between 40,000 and 50,000 looks at the current results page per month which corresponds to about 25,000 to 35,000 unique users.

Caveats
When comparing our access statistics to other sites, please compare apples to apples. Many sites count the total number of files (pages and graphics) retrieved and claim that this is the number of users visiting their site. Using that measure, we would count over 5,000,000 hits per month.

Also, be careful (and somewhat suspicious) of the counters often found on web pages. They are easily manipulated either by manually starting the counter at a high number or by programming a robot browser to repeatedly hit the site.

Probably less than 2% of the sites out there can accurately claim more than 10,000 unique users per month.

Finally ...
You won't usually find statistics information on a site because either they are embarassed to tell you what kind of response they are getting or they are not properly tracking it. If you are considering advertising with us, it is important for you to know exactly what you are getting.

We'd love it if you'd help boost our hit rate ... please let your friends, family and associates know about @LA. And of course, we encourage you to visit often.
