Exciting News & Updates from UCGIA

Record-breaking Quarter at UCG.ORG

October 9, 2013

We are very pleased to report that our website traffic at www.ucg.org continues to climb very favorably. The 2013 July-September quarter resulted in the highest number of unique website visitors in our history: more than 1.4 million. Please note that this is not the total number of visits, but the number of unique visitors. Many of these people visited multiple, multiple times throughout the same time period.

As a result, we are on track to log 5.5 million unique visitors for the 2013 calendar year. Please see the following chart that illustrates our website visitor growth over the past eight years. The final quarter of 2013 is a conservative estimate based on the average number of visitors for the first three quarters. It may actually be higher if the positive trend continues and if previous years’ Q4 are any indication.

UCG.ORG Unique Visitors

Please continue to pray for God’s blessing upon the United Church of God’s diligent effort to preach the gospel of the Kingdom of God around the world with increasing reach and effectiveness. Also, please ask God that our Good News magazine readers and our Beyond Today television viewers will be inspired and feel compelled by the gospel message to become more involved in the work of God’s Church—as donors and coworkers, but especially as newly converted Christians part of Jesus Christ’s flock in this end-time Work.

We are presently in the middle of a further redesign of our website to gain the most opportunity from mobile Internet technology—especially for our readers and viewers who use smart phones and tablets (like the iPad). Our dedicated team of website professionals are hard at work on this new update. I’m sure they would appreciate your prayers to God on their behalf as well.

  3. Hi What is a “unique” visitor? Cheers, Mavis

    • Mavis, if you visit ucg.org 100 times over the course of a month, you’re counted as “1” unique user, not 100. The actual visits to the site by you would be 100 by unique you!

  4. Nearly 10 times growth in just 7 years in the number of “uniques” reached via the web. This is an amazing 38.95% compounded rate of return over this time period. INCREDIBLE!

  5. Mavis, a unique visitor is someone who is only counted once as visiting. In other words, a separate visitor who is not counted again should they come back to the site to visit again.

    The chart is thus showing a total of 550,000 “unique” individuals, (not counted more than once) who will have visited UCG.ORG this year.

    Your Friend,
