Orleans Hub broke the 500,000-mark for page views for the third straight month in November. Overall, we had 501,550 pageviews in November for a daily average of 16,718.

We also averaged 5,440 daily unique visitors, the third straight month we were over 5,000 for a daily average.

We were down a little from the record traffic in October, when we had a daily average of 5,640 unique visitors, and a daily page view average of 17,786. (The November traffic was about double from a year ago.)
