Looking through my website’s statistical data is so much like Christmas morning that I could hardly sleep last night knowing that I was going to find out which articles and pages were the most visited of 2011. It has been a banner year for GrantHammond.com, I recorded 186,189 visits to the site with 123,705 of those being unique visitors. All of those visitors viewed 721,234 total pages and spent an average of 5:19 on the site. Additionally, 64.76% of all visitors were new and 35.24% were returning visitors. Across the board, these numbers represent between 18% to 23% gains over 2010 and nearly 50% gains over 2009.
Setting my sights towards 2012, I am hoping to break the 1,000,000 total page view barrier which would require 2,740 page views every day. I plan to achieve this goal by continuing to produce hard hitting, statistically driven articles that are backed up by close personal contacts with developers, investors, banks, and other influencers in the Nashville real estate market. My hope is to guide you towards better real estate transactions. It is a pleasure writing these articles and I look forward to your input, guidance and continued friendship.

Strangest statistical fact of the year: Canadian visitors to GrantHammond.com stayed on the site longer and read more pages than any other place. Canadians stayed on the site for an average of 8:31 and read 12.7 pages. While I only sold 4 properties to people from Canada this year, I would like to say thank you to the 1,892 of you who came to visit.
I thank everyone for their readership, I hope to make you proud again in 2012. Here’s to a Happy and Prosperous 2012! – Grant
