Hello everyone,

We hit some more milestones recently which I thought I would share with all of you....

First off, the forums officially (finally) had their 1000th thread - a post about travelling to Canada which can be found at:
The forums went live about a year ago so on average that's a little less than three new threads per day. I think half of the threads were started in the last three months or so, so that says something about recent growth and activity in the forum area. We are VERY happy to see so many posters, and especially returnee posters who are helping out travellers on a daily basis more and more; THANKS everyone!

Secondly, January was another record month for Travellerspoint, both in new members as well as in visitors and page views. We had over 1200 new members join to boost membership to well over 7500! There are some 175 countries represented who altogether have travelled to 175 countries too making this a pretty international bunch (to say the least).

January also was the first month we had more than 1 million page views which basically means that a page like this one was opened one million times! To put that into perspective somewhat, that's more than double what it was six months ago....

All in all, it's beyond Pete and my wildest dreams.... as you might be able to imagine...

Thanks everyone!

Yeah, it's been a pretty good month January :) and to think that this really isn't the peak season for travel websites! In addition to the stats Samuel mentioned (btw.. one more member and it's 8000), last week was also the first week with over 300 members joining!

Sam, guess you are definitely stuck with that #1 placement on Google (and the rest)!! But as they say...


And you guys definitely have the right mojo!

[ Edit: lack of hand-eye coordination... ]

I would like to think I contributed to it as well . I dropped the Travellers Point website to a half of dozen backpackers in Asia. I said, all your answers for your next trip are there!

By the way, I love the new emoticons...

That's exactly what we need; more promotions like that!!! It's always nice when members refer the site to others!
