Web stats 2014: Tomorrow pageviews up 44 per cent

OUR web stats for 2014 show a 44 per cent rise in pageviews and unique pageviews, as well as an improvement in bounce rate and exit percentage.

Google Analytics stats track almost 10,000 unique pageviews, with the United States accounting for 39 per cent of sessions, Canada 18 per cent, the United Kingdom 16 per cent, Australia 4 per cent and China nearly 3 per cent.

Comments Guidelines

We must tread a line between principles 1, 8 and 11 in particular when it comes to comments on our reporting. Everyone has a right to be heard, but we must protect some members of the public on occasion and promote RESPONSIBLE debate and mediation. That means some comments must be removed or edited.

For example, if a comment mentioned criminal allegations against an individual, this would be removed as it might identify innocent individuals or victims.

Harassment of fellow commentators will not be tolerated, nor will discriminatory or offensive language, particularly if made from behind false identities or anonymity.

Please apply this basic approach when considering a comment: would you make it to a parent or close friend? We encourage readers to discuss stories with friends, family or anyone and then return to make comments. Then you will be meeting principle 11 as well.

And remember, as a news editor once said, you only get five exclamation marks in life, so use them sparingly.
