PL DELFI: 2 years
Today the Polish website in Lithuania PL DELFI celebrates its 2nd birthday. On this occasion we would like to present a short report on the last period and share our future plans with the website’s readers.
A pinch of statistics to begin with
For six months the ratings of the website have been climbing steadily (according to the unique users). In December last year we set an absolute ratings record. Nevertheless, we did not grind to a halt – the ratings in January were even better. The ratings in February were at the same level as in December, which is a fine achievement when we think of a smaller number of days in this month. When it comes to the forecasts of the Gemius (Polish company performing research, analytic and advisory services within the Internet), they fill us with optimism.
The greatest number of readers comes undoubtedly from Lithuania. The Vilnius Country makes up more than a half of it (54, 7 per cent), the Kaunas County takes second place – 24 per cent, then the Šiauliai County – 7, 2 per cent and the Klaipėda County – 6, 7 per cent.
The situation in the world is as follows (the numbers were presented without taking Lithuania into consideration): more than half of the PL DELFI’s readers (58, 1 per cent) come from Poland, 10 per cent from Great Britain, nearly 5 per cent from Russia, USA, then Germany, Norway and Denmark.
Interestingly, PL DELFI was visited by the people from such exotic countries like Mauretania, Republic of South Africa, New Zealand, Colombia, United Arab Emirates or Philippines.
Despite the ratings record in the last months, PL DELFI takes part in the project MyEP (My European Parliament). To this end the new section MyEP has been created, where you can find information on activity of the EU’s authorities.
We plan to make the website more varied by introducing some lighter content. The sections like: Joke of the day, Maxim of the day and Quotation of the day are going to be introduced.
Policy and content
The website will not change radically in this regard. The news from Lithuania and Vilnius will make up half of the content, the most interesting and significant world news will constitute the third part of it, and the rest will be devoted to culture and entertainment.
The editorial staff is not always able to keep a tight rein on the immensity of the pieces of information, that is why we are always open to any world or local news which you can send to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Comments and their authors
Information for those who comment on the articles. The editorial staff does not influence directly the removing and restricting the possibility to comment on the content of the website. You can find all the principles of commenting in particular links. Despite that the editorial staff has the right to intervene.
During the last half of the year we have managed to reduce the number of the comments departing from the proprieties and the sense.
The editorial staff of PL DELFI wishes you all the next joint years of cooperation as well as warm and sunny spring.
