    Dear Members & Sponsors:

    As you may know from other posts, we keep a very close eye on the performance of this site. We have several different statistic and performance evaluations done on a regular basis. We pay for some of these services and others are offered at no charge to ensure we are not getting biased or inflated results.

    These evaluations track and compare LawnSite.com with all other industry related web sites in the lawn & landscape industry (this includes forums, manufacturers, information sites, magazines, etc...). The statistics tracked are daily visitors to the site, daily page views, unique users, registered members, search engine positioning & accessibility, number of sites linking to our site, and overall popularity on the entire internet. Also, in relation to other industry or related forums, we have threads and posts counts compared as well.

    In every report we received....LAWNSITE.COM RANKED #1 IN EVERY SINGLE CATEGORY!!!

    We also received a "trust ranking" of 10/10 - which is determined by how we represent the site and our "numbers". For example, at lawnsite if you are inactive for 15 minutes, you are no longer considered to be "on the site". If you log out or leave lawnsite, you are no longer considered active on the site. When we track users, visitors and guests, we only track actual people - not spider bots and search engines scanning our site. Go to any other forum a fraction of the size of LawnSite and you will see how easy it is to inflate these numbers.

    To give you an idea of how the numbers added up...

    Daily Visitors

    Two Other Industry Forums # Daily Visitors COMBINED = 478
    LawnSite.com # Daily Visitors = 23,421

    There are reportedly (by Google) over 8.5 billion web sites on the internet. Web sites are ranked #1 through # 5 million in popularity based on traffic, links, search engine positioning, etc... anything over 5 million does not even rank...The top sites (as you would guess) are Yahoo, Google, etc... These rankings change daily but each site is usually within a few rankings of where they usually rank.

    Web Site Popularity Rankings

    Forum 1 = Ranked 1,533,861
    Forum 2 = Ranked 4,676,645

    LawnSite = Ranked 32,343 most popular site on entire internet

    I was ecstatic when I received the reports and all the thanks goes to our dedicated members who keep this site hoppin, the sponsors who keep it possible, and the moderators who keep it organized and flowing.

    Once again.... Thank you members & sponsors for truly making LawnSite.com the #1 Lawn Care & Landscaping Industry site on the web!!!

    Actually, that was going to be my next post... I am putting something together where the first "x" number of people who email me with their legitimate suggestions on how to improve the site will receive a free lawnsite mousepad. I will make the announcement in a separate thread so people see it.

    This site is by far and away the most informative site in the "green industry". My employees & I totally enjoy your site mainly because of up-to-date happenings/products/equipment, opinnions, etc, as well as the experience of fellow members (members are the best thing on this site). This post is initiated by two of my employees because they were instructed to apologize (by me) regarding some of their previous controversial posts. Sorry about that (too many beers?). Bottom line, I realize that my friends at LESCO and everyone else are watching here. We'll try to offer the respect that this fine site deserves. Lot's of good tips from so many here. Thanks 'Lawnsite', and especially thanks to all members who continue to help us out. Oh yes -- we totally enjoy all the humor by most - not the negativity created by a very select few. Thanks from all of us tonight.

    I've recently become an official member and I love the information!
    Two suggestions:

    1) Include in the help section a legend of the different icons one sees on the various threads and posts on this site. Maybe list it in the help section.

    2) Provide an ability for people to access different threads form others. I was reading about BB lawnmowers and several different times people would say (I'm paraphrasing) not this again, bla bla bla. I was interested in that. I don't know HTML but it would be helpful if possible to cross link some of the discussions. Once something would come up a tab somewhere would list similar previous links where this topic is also discussed.

    Just a thought,
    Keep up the good work.
