Visitor numbers and Search engine placement

1. Visitor numbers and traffic trends

  • On a daily basis, between 72% to 87% of our visitors are from English speaking nations (mainly the UK, Ireland, the USA and Canada). However we have had visitors from over 100 different countries and, during the course of any single day, we will see guests from 35 to 50 different nations. (The site also has some Spanish language content, accessed from the home page.)

  • Almost 2 out of every 5 of our visitors look at one or more of our advertising pages to find out about organising and booking hotels, buying property, car rental, flights, villas, tours etc. and almost 30% of our visitors make a return visit within 2 days.

  • Our visitors are not interested in Spain generally, they are looking specifically for visitor information and holiday or property buying services connected with Galicia.

With Vueling and Ryanair now offering direct low cost flights out of 2 UK airports daily (Heathrow, Stansted) and flying in to 3 Galician airports (Santiago, la Coruna and Vigo), more Britains than ever (over 5000 per week) are visiting Galicia and is where they start planning and making their holiday arrangements. If you want to be part of their plans, think about advertising with us.
