Yesterday, Monday, November 11, 2017, DrydenWire.com received just over 15,000 pageviews - about the average for our website on a daily basis over the last 3 months - bringing our year-to-date pageviews total to 4,005,017.
Pageviews is just one of the many metrics we monitor on our website using Google Analytics. Pageviews, as defined by Google, is: "An instance of a page being loaded (or reloaded) in a browser. Pageviews is a metric defined as the total number of pages viewed." Basically, anytime you go to DrydenWire.com via computer, mobile, or tablet, it registers as 1 pageview. Old Media often refers to pageviews as "impressions".
In 2016, our 1st full-year after we launched DrydenWire.com on October 1, 2015, our total pageviews ended up around 950,000. We set - what we thought to be - a very aggressive expectation of 3,000,000 total pageviews (essentially tripling our prior 1st-year number) for this year. So hitting the 4,000,000 mark with a few a weeks left in 2017 is, we think, incredible.
