nibusinessinfo.co.uk February performance

March 5, 2015 at 10:36 am

Just 28 days in February coupled with major changes to content meant nibusinessinfo.co.uk customer visits fell short of January’s record high. HMRC’s planned shift to the GOV.UK platform required structural changes to the Tax, payroll and company information theme – work which has been ongoing since December. Search engines recognised this in the first week of February, and daily Taxes visits dropped by 75%. However, overall daily customer visits recovered to near record levels by the end of the month.

September – a month of milestones

October 2, 2014 at 4:49 pm

The transition from summer to autumn, from August to September, always brings a rush of new customers to nibusinessinfo.co.uk. This year a mighty 26% jump in traffic has propelled nibusinessinfo.co.uk above 1 million visits in the first six months of 2014-15, along with a series of firsts for our site.

milestones

Our monthly visits figure rose above 200,000 for the first time. Similar success was achieved in the number of daily visits to the site during September. In January, we welcomed a record 6,000 visits a day, which was surpassed in August by 8,000 daily visits – so charting three new records in a single month was unexpected:

  • 9,000 visits (3 Sep)
  • 10,000 visits (11 Sep)
  • 11,000 visits (30 Sep)
