For the first time since our small crime history site was launched three years ago, its unique pageviews daily average figure climbed to more than one thousand per day, according to site hosting service Blogger.com. The daily average during October 2019 is just over 1,140 and still growing. This is an improvement of more than 32 percent over the old record. The previous high for average daily pageviews was 862, generated during the month of July, 2019.
The total unique pageviews for October stands at this moment at 35,378, according to Blogger, and is likely to cross 36,000 by end of month. [Nov. 1, 2019, Update: The final figure for October was 37,334, making the daily average 1,204.] The monthly figure had never before exceeded 26,729 - that record was set during this past summer.
So far this year, The Writers of Wrongs has added forty-two articles to bring the total available on the site to 229. The most-read articles in the month of October 2019 were:
- "Anastasia delayed, did not escape death in 'chair,'" by Thomas Hunt.
