Good afternoon everybody. I wanted to give you all an update on SBI and the progress we’ve made heading into our eighth month of existence.
Thanks to you, the readers, SBI was able to set a new traffic high for the fourth straight month, surpassing the 900,000 pageview mark for July. That came as a bit of a surprise considering the lack of high-profile events in July. With August full of events such as the Olympics, World Cup Qualifying and the start of the European soccer season, SBI could reach the 1 million pageview mark in August.
SBI has also secured a new lead sponsor. Premier Soccer Shop in Hoboken New Jersey is now the new exclusive soccer apparel sponsor for SBI. Check out their website for all your soccer gear needs and you should expect to see me setting up camp at the Hoboken store for some on-site blogging in the near future.
And last, but not least, I wanted to thank long-time reader and graphic designer Matthew Leahy from Richmond, Virginia for turning my vision of an SBI logo into a reality. If you like his work and would like to have him do some design work for you then you can reach him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
That’s all for now. I will be posting the Top 10 states and Top 20 cities rankings next week and will be finishing up the reader roll call survey very soon. Thanks again to all of you for your support in helping SBI get off to a great start. August should be the best month yet, with plenty of great soccer to cover and plenty of news to keep you posted on.
