Addressing bandwidth issues

During the month of June, I will be transferring this site to a new server that will be better able to handle the bandwidth issues I have been having. There may be frequent outages of Birding In Maine, but I ask that you please bear with me in this endeavor.

As many of you have noticed, during the last 3 days of May the site was not available due to reaching a bandwidth quota. When I first started this blog, I never dreamed that it would become so popular.

Here are some stats for the month of May:

  • 139,527 hits
  • Visitors from 33 different countries
  • Searches in Google and Yahoo for relevant content coming in the top ten search results, frequently number 1 or 2
  • 2959 new visitors bookmarking this site
  • Bandwidth: 10 gb (that’s gigabytes)

As you can see, I need to expand so that our visitors can be assured of trouble free viewing of Birding In Maine.

Please bear with me as I begin to transfer my files to a new server. Any outages will be very brief, and I will continue to post articles. I will announce when the move is finished. The web site address will remain the same.

Thank you for your patience!

Happy birding!
