iRV2 Pushes Boundaries of Internet Traffic

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

RV D@aily Report
Gregg Gerber, Editor


CONWAY, S.C. --Internet forum iRV2.com continues to push the boundaries concerning the number of RVers using the website to communicate with each other about their travel experiences and the RV industry in general, Marketing Director Michael Pelchat told RV Daily Report.

According to Google Analytics, the website saw 436,000 visitors in the past 30 days -- of which, 235,000 were unique visitors. The site attained 2.3 million page views in May alone, as recorded by Google Analytics.

"I am constantly impressed by the amount of traffic we generate," said Pelchat. "We owe our success to good moderation and exceptional people who volunteer to be administrators in managing how people communicate with one another."

The article is continued on RV D@aily Report ......

I am impressed.

My first experience was not as good as I had anticipated though. I got hooked into purchasing a membership in RV Park Superguide as a result of a pop up on this site. I normally do not fall for shysters of this type but felt that because it was advertised on iRV2 it should be OK.

Well, as a lot of iRV2 members can attest, they are crooks.

On the bright side, I did manage to get my CC refunded by using a post by another iRV2 member saying he had threatened them with reporting to the Federal Trade Commision etc. I used the same tactic and received a credit.
Thanks to iRV2 for that. I see the pop up is gone. Hopefully someone is watching so we don't see this type of advertising in the future.

I am sure this was the exception to the rule, keep up the good work.

That's truly impressive. Especially since SOME regular iRV2 users have google-analytics blocked, and so were not part of those understated numbers.

Be sure and log in and then in control panel, you can turn off most of the ads, especially the one on the right side of the screen.

Some of the ads may not be due to iRV2. Google will populate ads based on your internet searches, so be care searching for the oriental girl sites.....
