Celebrating Two Years of Service to the Germantown Community



Today, August 1, marks the official two-year anniversary of the Germantown Pulse.

Two years already!

While the work to make Germantown Pulse a reality started a few weeks before, August was the first full month of operation. In those first weeks after August 1, the Germantown Pulse didn’t have much in terms of readership. In that first month just 1,723 unique visitors came to www.GermantownPulse.net, and the newborn website had just 3,810 pageviews for the entire month of August.

Since then, the Pulse has worked hard to cover as much of the news in the Germantown area as possible, from fires to motor vehicle accidents, from crime to high school graduations, through blizzards and sweltering heat, State Championship to candlelight vigils. It if happened in the Germantown area, it has been part of the Pulse.

Thanks to an amazing readership that has shared our stories on FaceBook, Twitter, and Instagram, or talked to their neighbors about this new site called the Pulse, it has grown stronger and more powerful. Our readership has grown exponentially. The Pulse as grown thanks to a readership collective that cares about the community and wants local news and local sports, about local people and local neighborhoods.

In July 2016, according to Google Analytics, 43,669 unique visitors read local news on Germantown Pulse, and the site had 80,979 pageviews.

In all of 2015, the first full year of Germantown Pulse’s existence, the Pulse had 129,764 unique users and 308,308 pageviews. In just the first six-months of 2016, the Pulse attracted 150,676 unique users and 369,677 pageviews, according to Google Analytics.
