Website Visitor Numbers Double

The statistics for BiblicalStudies.org.uk in October make very encouraging reading.

Website Statistics for BiblicalStudies.org.uk 2013-2014

In October 2013 the site received 46,347 visitors; this October it received 92,240 visitors – a 100% increase! The month by month figures over the year also indicate a steady growth. This means that the 20,000+ theological articles and books currently hosted are being distributed at a phenomenal rate.

I was also greatly encouraged to see that the site is being used Internationally, including countries where these theological resources are otherwise difficult or impossible to obtain (see table below).

The only downside of the dramatic increase in site usage is that the demand on server resources now regularly exceeds the capacity of the shared server in which it resides. This can be seen on the usage chart below. When the blue line on the chart meets the red line, this indicates that server cannot meet the demand being placed upon it.

None of this tremendous growth would have been possible without your support. Thank you to everyone who has prayed, financially supported, lent resources and given permission for material to be hosted here. We give thanks to God that there is every indication that visitor numbers will continue to climb.

The Future of Theology on the Web

Over the last six months I have been planning how best to take forward the work of Theology on the Web in providing freely available theological material on the Web. To this end I have produced a vision document that I would like to share with those who have benefited from the sites. You can download a copy here. Please pass it on to people and organisations you think it might interest.
