  • There were over 9600 web site visits in the six months July to December viewing over 21,000 pages.
  • The Signpost web site is still ranked #2 (after our Wikipedia entry) on searches for “Woodford Halse” on Google, Google search is still how most people find us.

  • We have 208 Facebook “Likes” (up from 164 in June) – these people get all our updates on their Facebook feed automatically.

  • 144 news items were put on the site between July and December.

  • We still need to improve interaction with the community with more groups contributing material to the web site.

  • Most users access the site through mobile phones or tablets (53% of users with these compared with 47% using a laptop or desktop computer). The design of the site is a compromise layout intended to work reasonably on both types of device.

  • The three most popular pages were Village News, Parish Council Minutes and WOW.

  • The three most popular news items were Northampton’s sale of the Egyptian statue, Harley Equestrian’s new shop & cafe, and Fawsley Hall Jobs.
