Lotus Elan

LotusElan.net is one month old!!!

PostPost by: jcocking » Fri Apr 09, 1999 2:24 pm

Today, we finished the first month of existence for http://LotusElan.net.
We have had the typical technical teething pains as with any new application
with various software and hardware problems.

Even with some problems, we have had 2400 visitors with 1400 unique visitors
in 30 days. This amounts to about 80 visitors a day. We are just beginning
to get good placement with the search engines, so hopefully the traffic will
continue to increase.

We have had 58 cars register. This includes every make and model from an
early S1 (26/0134) to a late Sprint/5 (73080097H), and with a 26R. A few
Plus 2's have registered, but with an active Plus 2 registry, that is
understandable. We have spanned the globe with the registry. Countries to
date include: Australia, Barbados, Canada, France, Ireland, Netherlands,
New Zealand, Philippines, Switzerland, UK and the US. The registry includes
a brief description of the car. If you have not registered, come on down.

Once a month, I will send out a notice of What's New. All items submitted
are placed on the site. (Yes I have a stack waiting to be placed on the
site, so if you do not see your submittal, I am working on it.) If you have
any items that relate to the Elan and would like to submit them, contact me
or send them to me.

That is it for now. Happy Lotusing!!!
