Am I seeing correctly, or has the Forum attracted a record number of readers today? My counter shows 133, and the last record number being 124 on 3rd August. This is quite a big leap forward, as usually the number of readers moves up slowly. Question: I know we are in the busiest month of the year, regarding Pilgrims on the Way, but I think that they are not the ones who consult the Forum, so who are these readers, potential Pilgrims or the ones who have finished and want to re-live their experiences?

Hi there,

These are two different numbers, 133 are the number of times the RSS feed have been accessed lately. (To see the RSS feed, click the counter itself).

124 was the number of unique visitors over a 60 minute period on Aug 3rd to the forum itself. Lately google has been liking us a bit better, and given us a better ranking when you search for camino related things, I think this might have something to do with it.... and the fact that August is the BIG vacation/pilgrim month.

Saludos from Sunny Spain,

The more links we have to the forum, the more important google thinks the site is... and the better the listing.

So, please add a link to the forum from your site! :) ...if you don't know how to do this, you can copy and paste the code that you can find towards the top of this page.
