Sioux Falls Free Thinkers
February 2014 Newsletter #007
For February here are the facts through the 28th.

In February at least one meetup was planned for every weekend. On February 28th we had our last February meetup of the Sioux Falls Free Thinkers. We had planned to discuss Belief vs Non-belief at this meetup, but we filled up the Board Room at Skelly's and the new members and regulars just wanted to talk, so that's what we did. We had lots of fun.

I've selected a new meetup location for 6 meetups next month, the Riverfront Room at Country Inn & Suites. Right now I'm planning 2 meetups on Saturdays, the 8th and the 15th, 2 meetups on Fridays, the 21st and the 28th, and two meetups on Wednesdays, the 12th and the 26th in the Falls Landing Restaurant itself. The Falls Landing Restaurant will be serving us their full food and beverage menu in the Riverfront Room. The room can handle up to 40 people. The room will be set up in the circular table style, just like Skelly's Board Room table, just as people have said they like.

We've got 35 members and 20 non-member meeting attendees. This is a return of 2.6% on unique visitors. In the business of website advertising 2-2.5% return is considered good, anything above 3% is considered exceptional.

All our websites are top ranked in the search engines. We currently have over 140 first page positions for our websites out of 300 possible positions given related search terms. These are not paid for positions. They are based on the relevance of the websites to the search terms being used. As we continually add more material to our websites these rankings will certainly be maintained and expanded.

The websites are being updated almost daily with new news articles, and movie, course, and book descriptions. Currently there over 270 website pages with over 500 news articles, over 175 movie and course descriptions, and over 100 book descriptions, not to mention a lot of other information related to the subject matter of the websites. Members continue to contribute book recommendations.

So far we've had:
2100 unique visitors to the Sioux Falls Free Thinkers website.
416 unique visitors to the Sioux Falls Atheists website.
396 unique visitors to the Sioux Falls Feminists website.
222 unique visitors to the Sioux Falls Scientists website.
218 unique visitors to the Sioux Falls Zoologists website.
See the attached chart showing unique visitor growth.

As all the advertising shut down on the 23rd the unique visitor growth should have fallen off, but that doesn't seem to be what's happening? The growth is continuing. It's possible this may not continue, but then again the websites are wholly facts and truth driven. The basic facts and truths being offered by the websites have no factual opposition.

Almost all of the visitors to the unadvertised websites above come from links on the Sioux Falls Free Thinkers website, except for the visits to the Sioux Falls Feminists website which had its own TV ads.
