Website traffic

Website traffic or hits vary throughout the year. We receive most hits in the summer months and the least around Christmas time. Unique visitors are individual website users who view the website each month. Page views shows the number of web pages viewed each month. Figures from one year to the next can also vary, depending on particular events, for example after the flooding in 2015 our hits and page views increased. We use Google Analytics to measure website traffic.

How we measure our website traffic

We use Google Analytics to measure our website traffic. We feel that this more accurately reflects visits from humans, rather than robots or search engine crawlers, that are included in data from server logs.
