LoGro’s April web traffic surpasses all-time high by wide margin: 12,000 unique visitors

Logro traffic April 2011

According to Google Analytics, Locally Grown’s traffic for the month of April, 2011:

  • 12,081 Visitors
  • 22,787 Visits
  • 39,891 Pageviews

I was surprised when we nudged up to 10,000 unique visitors in March, as we’ve hovered between 8-9,000 for many months.  So it was quite nice to see the jump to 12,000.
