Rail Turkey was opened as a blog in English on April 19, 2013. The first post was “Let The Ferry Start”.
In spite of the summer time, monthly visits reached to 1300 by July. Hey, we must be really an entertaining portal.
Till today, Rail Turkey is visited from 78 different countries (thanks to Aland Islands, Libya, Viet Nam, Cape Verde, Israel, Panama, Costa Rica and Jordan which support us reaching to 78 by visiting only 1 page).
Half of the readers are from Turkey. However half of them is following pages in Engllish (no, of course not tourists, who would read railway articles on beach).
Other leading “reading” countries are Germany (12%), Austria (8%) and USA (%7).
Each reader is visiting 2,5 pages in average. And now new Rail Turkey is even more attractive (reached to 4 pages/visitor in October) than before.
40% of the visitors are finding Rail Turkey by search engines. Thanks to Google, already sent more than 1000 visitors. Linkedin, Facebook, WordPress, Twitter and Wikipedia are the following referrers. Special thanks to Trains of Turkey, just coming after these famous brands with 33 visitors.
