Visitors Hit The Spot

More and more visitors are logging on to the visitsouthport tourism website making it one of the most popular in the country.   Figures released by New Mind, which hosts the Visit Southport website, show that during September, the Southport site was in the top 5 of unique visitor numbers for tourist destination sites across the UK.

New Mind hosts about 60% of the UK’s official destination websites and the Southport site is regularly in the top 20 most visited destination web sites out of more than 150 in their growing portfolio.   During the Saturday of the popular Southport Air Show, the visitsouthport site managed to attract more than 25,000 visitors alone. This was the highest number of hits ever received by New Mind in a single day beating the previous record by more than 8,000.   Cllr Ian Maher, Cabinet Member Regeneration and Tourism, has welcomed the latest figures.

He said: “These statistics clearly show the visitsouthport website is now one of the most visited tourism sites in the UK.   “The Southport site was up against some other major cities and other tourist destinations so to have the most unique visitors in one day of all the New Mind sites speaks volumes.

“This reaffirms what we have known for so long that Southport and Sefton are great places to visit and offer something for the whole family.”   The visitsouthport website has recently been updated and re-launched promoting tourism in Southport and Sefton. The new responsive site recognises whether you are viewing it from a mobile, tablet or laptop and formats the display accordingly.
