    its certainly a good thing to see so many more people finding the forum when searching for help with their timeshares!

    the amount of traffic to the forum from organic google searches has increased so much since the upgrade, we should have done this long ago!

    Maybe but migrating to something new can be daunting. The fact is that it got done and rather successfully. Look forward, not back. Good things happened as a result of the change. :thumbup:

    The goal for next year 2018 should be 90,000 and I feel if we all continue to work together and keep on spreading these three (3) words “Knowledge is Power” about timeshare.

    shouldnt have much problem at all hitting 90k, this is always the slowest time of the year traffic wise to the site.

    80,000 in April. 85,000 in November. At the rate things are going, there's a decent chance of hitting 100,000 by Christmas 2018. Time to start planning the BIG TUG PARTY!!! :cheer::cheer::cheer:
