It was a huge month for Greater Long Island Media Group LLC, which now publishes four community news sites across Suffolk County through greaterlongisland.com.
In total, the sites were viewed 209,555 times in March, with 133,893 unique visitors coming to us for information.
Those numbers are good for the best month, traffic wise, since the company was introduced to the public on July 1, 2015 — with the launch of greaterpatchogue.com.
The goal is to hit 2.3 million views in 2018. Last year, the sites were viewed 1.9 million times. (Scroll down to keep reading.)
“We broke big news stories, covered big weather events and our St. Patrick’s parade photos always draw lots of attention,” said Greater Long Island publisher and editorial director Michael White. “We’re already working on some great local content for April.”
The company also circulated an anonymous survey this winter, through which the sites, which are free, garnered 4.28 out of 5 stars for user satisfaction. Click here for the full survey results.
Greater Long Island Media Group now runs GreaterPatchogue, GreaterBayShore, GreaterBabylon and GreaterPortJeff. The Port Jefferson site is the newest, having launched on Sept. 13, 2017, and is the company’s first on the North Shore.
On social media, the brands have a combined 28,000 followers on Facebook (19,520) and Instagram (8,647). Another 1,868 follow along on Twitter as we near 30,000.
