Site visits rise

Visits to Te Awamutu News website were 52 per cent up last month on the same period in 2023.

Leading the way was the home page, up 80 per cent with the downloadable version of the newspaper back in fourth with a 26 per cent increase.

Best read story for the month was editor Roy Pilott’s article on the new cellphone tower planned for Pirongia.

Our ever-popular News in Brief column was next followed by the announcement from our publisher Good Local Media that a new Te Awamutu App had been launched.

Both the website and Te Awamutu App have several ex-pat readers with Aucklanders leading the way. Across the ditch, we have readers from, in order, Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne and the top city outside Australasia is Dublin.
