There were more than 211,037 visits to Durand Now between January 1st 2019 and December 31st 2019 by an average of 8,124 unique visitors per month for a total of 277,130 page views (pvs).

These numbers represent a significant increase over website traffic in 2018, however, not the greatest traffic the site has seen in an annum. The site's strongest year to date was 2017, when there were 369,351 pvs.

For us, that means 2020 will be all about hustling, and how things go will determine what the future of the site looks like.

It was a strong start to the year in 2019. The top three most trafficked months of 2019 were March (47,920 pvs), February (29,081) and January (28,735). There were an average of 23,094 page views per month.

One final note: in an effort to help fight fake news in 2020, we're posting the date and time of publish in larger text at the very top of every story, to make it easier for you and others to spot outdated information before sharing it social media.

For reference below, we've added the published date for each of our Top 12 stories last year as well!

There's more to the story! Keep reading!
