It’s been almost a year (11 months) since CenterlineScores.com launched. During that time, the website and this blog have had over 212,629 visits (and over 1.5 million page views) from over 98,000+ unique visitors.
We’ve had visitors from all over the country and all over the world (in fact, every country in the world with the exception of some of the middle and west African countries and one country in South America). Not surprisingly, California leads all other states in traffic/usage of the site (with over 17% of those 212,000 visits), followed by Florida, Texas, New York, Georgia, Illinois, North Carolina, Washington, Massachusetts & Virginia.
Over the next few weeks, leading up to the anniversary of the new launch, we’ll be posting some new analyses and reporting on the State of US Dressage. We expect to be adding many new features this year. The first small one that we’re unveiling today allows riders to see their progress toward earning their USDF medals.
USDF Bronze, Silver and Gold medals are an achievement that many riders dream of and strive towards. For riders who have earned a qualifying score towards any of their medals, that progress will be shown under the “Medals” section of the rider profile.
It’s been an amazing year for CenterlineScores.com and the final jury is still out, but based on the feedback we’ve been hearing, the site (and more specifically the way our visitors have used it) has fundamentally and significantly changed the way that United States Dressage riders, horses and trainers are researched. Don’t take my word for it.
Here’s a very small sampling of emails and feedback we’ve gotten over the last year:
