Good morning everyone. It has been a long time coming, but for the first time ever, Hurricaneville has scored an advertising deal. Late last week, the company Diesel Service and Supply approached our web site with a proposal to carry their banner ad on our special historic hurricanes page. By Friday, an agreement was made, and on Monday afternoon, Diesel Service and Supply’s ad was placed at the top of the historic hurricanes page as its sponsor.

Since 2004, Hurricaneville has enjoyed tremendous success. Although this hurricane season has been somewhat of a tranquil one, the web site has still enjoyed a good deal of activity. At several points during the previous two years, 2004 and 2005, the site has seen up to 90,000 hits in a day. In 2004, the web site garnerned 1,255,000 hits over the six month period of the hurricane season including 910,000 hits during the month of September alone. Much of that was thanks in part to our coverage of the four Florida hurricanes: Charley, Frances, Ivan, and Jeanne.

Then, of course, there was the 2005 Atlantic Hurricane season, which was just monsterous with 28 named storms, 15 hurricanes, and 7 major hurricanes. Four of those seven major hurricanes were Category Five Hurricanes including Emily, Katrina, Rita, and Wilma. Five storms from that season had their names retired including Dennis, Katrina, Rita, Stan, and Wilma.

During the course of the 2005 season, which went all the way into early 2006, the site enjoyed tremendous traffic with 2,086,000 hits including 115,000 hits in June, which was 100,000 hits more than in June, 2004. Even November and December enjoyed busy months with over 100,000 hits in each month. July had 351,000 hits and October had 359,000. August and September combined was over a million alone although September, 2005 was several hundred thousand short of the year before. This season, has been well below those numbers, but still much more than early 2004 and the seasons 2000-2003. With the additional of the Hurricaneville Blogosphere and the RSS feed, new activity and interest has been generated.

So far in the months covering hurricane season in 2006, the site has received nearly 727,000 hits including 146,250 hits in June, which is more than in June, 2005. August and September each had over 200,000 hits each. Keep in mind that the 2006 season has only seen nine named storms, five hurricanes, and two major hurricanes of Category Three strength or better. So the activity has been quite good and better than that of prior to the 2004 season. So, the additions of such things as the monthly book review, articles on hurricanes from the past, and the aforementioned blog and RSS feed have helped.

Most importantly though, our site has appreciated all of you, who have shown great enthusiasm and devotion these past several years. It is a very important time not only with Atlantic Hurricanes, but with weather and climate in general. Not only are we in the midst of an active hurricane cycle, but also in a critical period in terms of the health of our planet. We hope that you all continue to use and enjoy the features and information provided on this site. Other companies, who are looking to promote themselves, are more than welcome to advertise on this web site. We’d love to help you, and have your business.
