Is it generally in decline? Each year I find it harder and harder to built hit content. 15 years ago, I could throw together a site which would get a million a month without too much effort. But back then search engines were serving content based on relevance not ad sponsorship.

My own video content track similarly, I had assumed it was because the content was seasonal. It seems the Internet is seasonal. I predict change as the world goes mobile

back then there were fewer websites. Competition has increased somewhat.

actually, while true. there has been much consolidation. 10-15 years ago people visited many more sites. now there is around 10 that get the vast majority of traffic. we've gone from corner shops to supermarkets.

I predict a similar evolution if the big player follow a similar strategy.

It is not in decline, but still doubling each year. It cannot last.

It remains very seasonal, following the law terms.

And again - we hit a new peak in November, and for the first time went over 20k page views on one day (30/11).

We got within spitting distance of doubling November, but again no biscuit - 469k page views as against 236k last year.

The central database today reached 400,000 cases. Little did I expect there would ever be so many.

I must find a way of publishing them to the swarb.co.uk site more quickly. The balance is that many remain (and always will be) merely a case name, a reference and a link to the full text. For those wanting a particular case (they know which they want) - that is enough.

Against that, I want to be able to guide people in a choice so noting up cases is important. At a basic level this can be just allocation a case to a category of law, but can extend to a summary of the facts, and teh law.

At the further extent, our real advantage is that we have large numbers of cases which are not properly reported elsewhere for free on the web.Typically there will be no full text version readily available. Here, we are ready to work harder on the case to identify teh points of law and its proper position within teh case law tradition.

Again 400k (now +2).
