FactsOfIsrael.com gets almost half a million hits per month

I have just checked the FactsOfIsrael.com logs and the numbers for November 2002 are incredible: 473,950 hits! Here's how our site is getting to be more and more popular as time goes by:

FactsOfIsrael.com Number of Hits per Month

In April there were a mere 12,344 hits, while in November there were 473,950 hits: that's an astonishing 3839.5% improvement (or 38.4 times more traffic)!

I started this site with 4-5 pages with info on the history, geography and stats on Israel and the Middle East. I then decided to post daily messages in English, French and Portuguese, related to the Victims of Palestinian Terrorism, News, Opinion, Humor, Anti-Semitism, Jewish History and more.

I also wrote a free screensaver with over 399 facts and 120 images on Israel and the Middle East - check it out here. Furthermore, I also send out a free newsletter (almost on a weekly basis), wrote a document on how to trace back hate messages, created an AvantGo channel for the Palm Pilot and created XML and KlipInfo feeds.

Oh I almost forgot the online store, the books, links and donations pages and the translation to the site in French. Not bad for a bit over 6 months! ;-)

I remind my friendly readers that FactsOfIsrael.com is not affiliated with any government, company, or institution. This is simply a personal attempt to give information on Israel and the Middle East and I have received funding from nobody. It takes time to manage the site and publish the screensaver and I incur all of the hosting costs. If you are a regular reader, please consider making a donation or purchasing the screensaver. I thank you in advance.

Instapundit, LGF, and AndrewSullivan.com here I come! ;-)
