Today is an important day, both because we celebrate the first day of summer and second because our website is 10 years old today.
The web was quite popular from the beginning and if we compare some statistics from the first summer to the summer 2018 then visits are up around 112% and page views around 62%. The first summer we had 13 camp sites that were registered on our site and for the coming summer we are already up to 115.
In the past 10 years we have worked in two different web systems, we have changed the look of the page four times and a few years ago we started using the current logo.
We have also tried different things in promoting the website. We printed a small brochure the first year, we took part in a travel show, we have had a facebook page from the beginning, we have been in cooperation with Rás2 radio station since 2010 and much, much more.
We have also tried a few things for those visiting the web. We had a star rating system for the camp sites, we puplished a weekly newsletter, we had a review system, we selected “camp site of the week and much more.
Our favorite is hearing from the camp sites that many and in some cased most of their guests found information about the camp site on our website. That was exactly the purpose of the web, to help people to find a camp site that would fit their needs on their travel around Iceland.
We thank you all for using our web and hope that it will continue to help you travel around Iceland.
