This means that an average of 311.54 readers have read each of Mr. Reyes’s 321 articles for the said period of almost 14 months. For Google to be able to record on a daily basis the number of hits, each visit must come from a particular computer hooked to up to an Internet Service Provider (ISP). As a general rule, repeat visitors using the same computer on the same day register only one hit, no matter how many times they visit a particular article on the same 24-hour period. In fact, computers sharing the same broadband connection are read by Google as only one site (one computer).


The top-10 authors of the have written a combined 718 articles as of the time this article was written. All the 718 articles collectively generated 191,807 hits. Bobby Reyes accounted for 44.71% of the articles and 52.14% of the hits. On an overall scale, each of the 718 articles generated an average of 267.14 readers and most of them are actually the so-called “unique users” that the Google and the Mambo 4.6.2 program (software) were able to recognize. This year, the will pass the 2,000 milestone in the number of articles published.


According to Allan Albert, the webmaster, this website now attracts 500 to 600 “unique users” per day. This performance has enabled this website to become the top Filipino community website in the United States. The and the continue to fight for supremacy in the rankings for the United States. The, a mere online publication, is just on its 14th month of existence. The is on its 17th year and counts on its hard-copy editions distributed in Southern and Northern California, Southern Nevada and the New York-New Jersey Filipino markets to promote its website.

Currently, the is ranked by as #74,281 most-popular site in the United States. The ranks the as #77,610 in the U.S.A.

Mr. Albert also discontinued the online counter on Feb. 19, 2008, after it registered 112,786 hits (or visits). Instead he replaced it with the Google and Mambo 4.6.2 programs of monitoring hits, plus the ranking system of Mr. Albert said that the three systems enable him to determine a more-realistic approach of knowing the actual number of “unique hits” generated by the website. After all, nobody can manipulate the three outside programs that the uses, so that the numbers of hits that are shown on the “Mabuhay Radio's Top 10 Authors” reflect the most-accurate recording of visits (readership).
