3 million & counting…

e-Veritas passes – 3 million mark in “visits”.

While we were away on R&R a couple of weeks ago, we passed the 3 million mark in “total views” for this particular e-Veritas format which we commenced in Aug 2007. Prior to that we had another layout / format which was launched January 6, 2005

That original format lasted until 31 Jul 2007 (approx 85 Issues).

Total “visits “ for the 30 month period was 378,000 (approx).

We’re not sure what, if anything, the total number of “visits” represents but for the most part we receive very positive support and encouragements from many sources – which we appreciate.

What is also encouraging is that the “visits” have been on a pretty steady incline over the years.

Not everyone thinks e-Veritas is great. We recently received the following assessment from a progressive online communications agency:

“… the existing eVeritas microsite is not very organized, visually appealing or especially user-friendly. The layout of each issue is really a series of hyperlinks and is not very compelling from a reader’s perspective.”

As previously mentioned, we do receive a fair amount of feedback – not all good – a few readers delight in keeping us on our toes – which we appreciate. However, of all the feedback that we have received, we do NOT recall comments along the lines of – “not very organized, visually appealing or especially user-friendly. The layout of each issue is really a series of hyperlinks and is not very compelling from a reader’s perspective.”

We would appreciate receiving comments (good or bad) on your view the reader on what you feel about e-Veritas and our present format / layout etc.

Please leave a comment below and / or send us a reply: [email protected]

In the meantime, we will keep pumping out the best product we can to the best our abilities – mostly from the kitchen table.

    Frankly, I find the e-Veritas presentation very organized and especially user friendly. No, it certainly is not visually appealing, but then visual appeal is unnecessary in the case of e-Veritas. Visual appeal has the purpose of attracting the reader, and particularly new readers. Only RMC “family” members would find its content of interest, in most issues, so visual appeal is not important. We are already attracted by our knowledge of the origin of e-Veritas, and by our expectation of its content, so we quickly open e-Veritas to view its interior content. Please keep up the good work.

    Hi, Bill:
    The current format, while not a slick commercial page, is quite effective and informative. Yes, I am sure there can always be improvement. There are also many companies who would like the work to improve it. Your team deserves credit for the current structure and its content. Keep up the great work!!
    Cheers,
    Chris

    I find the current format of the e-Veritas well laid out and the information easy to locate. I am sure there are numerous ways to make the presentation flashier and more expensive to produce but what most ex-cadets care about is the content, which is excellent. Bill and Roland are doing an amazing service to the college and foundation through their tireless efforts to keep ex-cadets connected. WELL DONE!!
