Woody Boater Hits Over 100,000 Hits, WooHoo!


Thanks to you loyal readers WoodyBoater has broken the 100,000 viewer mark, actually over 125,000. With an average readership of 7,500 a month and 15,000 views a month with an average monthly growth of 20% we are officially on a roll. The busiest day was during the Lake Dora Show with over 800 views a day. The other spikes in readership are when I yell at the ACBS. Which kills me a little inside every time I do it. It’s not in my nature to poke great folks in the eye… but if we don’t no one will. California leads the way with 7,000 viewers and then NY.. FLA, Illinois and Michigan are right up there. I don’t count Virginia, because it’s our home state. but wow 5500 viewers, me not included makes Virginia a classic boat state? Boats and Babes are way out in front as the top readership clicks. Folks spend close to 6 minutes on the site when they visit. For a small blog these numbers are mind blowing, considering that the hobby at best has 15,000 folks in it. We are humbled and extremely grateful for readership. In the upcoming months we are ramping up a new woodyboater, more everything. This is a true joy to do and even more fun when the comments come in. Thanks..

    Great Work Matt, I never miss a morning checking in with you. The fact that I read that diminished rag the Richmond Times Dispatch FIRST, is just habit….and about to change.
    I hope to go to the tidewater woodies show at Colonial beach this weekend, but a bit up in the air on that schedule wise.

    Congradulations. I know I am doing my part with at least one login a day. I always look foward to seeing what is next. Kudos for your responsiveness to readers needs as at the Mount Dora show. It is nice to see the variety of boats around and all the stuff that goes with them. Keep up the good work and I will keep reading and throwing the stray comment your way.

    And you thought nobody was looking! Just because some of us are quiet types and don’t comment very often. You are part of my morning routine, can’t live without you!

    ahhhhhh! I think it was a GarWood. I took hundreds of shots and I recall that boat being with a mess of GarWoods. I loved those vents. They have just the slightest flair about them.
