Top 50  USA Tourism Sites In Puget Sound for 2012

Jan 2013    Dec 2012    2012 One Year
This is a ranking lower number is better

 If you want the current daily ranking for any event click on their name

The one year ranking is based on taking the  Alexa.com 3 month Average US Traffic Ratings once each quarter, adding them up and dividing by four.

These rankings were taken 1-31-12, 4-30-12, 8-7-12, & 9-16-12 Now Alexa does US Rankings monthly.

 

Any website on this list is doing outstanding and they are in the top 1/4 of a percent of all websites in the  world for US traffic. These results are from an extensive search for local events, festivals, tours, and landmarks, still we may have missed some, but this gives you an idea of what kind of internet exposure our sponsors will receive compared to other tourism related web sites.   This changes every day - just click on a link to get the latest 1 month average. It is not the rating as much as it is knowing we are getting exposure year around for our sponsors and not just the week of the festival. Even if we were in the Top 50 as a "single event" we'd be pleased. The number is the US rank out of ALL 330 million websites, Lower the number, the better. Google would be number 1, Facebook 2. For 2013 we are working on placing three websites in the Top 100,000 of US traffic. www.WeekendWA.com; www.PugetSoundBalloonFestivals.com; and www.RandallTomaras.com. We took down the www.SequimBalloonFestival.com site on 9-16-12.

This is USA Traffic Ranking ONLY, not the World Rank
