Thumbs up PTO has broken into the TOP 100 rank of the biggest forums on the Internet!

Wow... I knew we were big but I did not know how we ranked in a lot of ways until I recently got data back from the people at Big Boards. They monitor the biggest forums on the Internet and rank them.

Out of 1,680 sites listed by them, PTO ranks the following:

Rank 68 - Traffic
Rank 77 - Average Online Users
Rank 86 - Maximum Online Users
Rank 83 - Page Views

Think of the Big Board chart sort of like Billboard Top 40 (etc) or any other thing that checks & verifies stats, rankings and more.

With regards to Big Boards, you have to have at least 1/2 A Million Post to qualify as a big board / forum. We got in some time ago but in the last 6 months to a year we have really grown traffic wise. Pretty impressive considering the really big sites and are usually dating or trend type sites, etc. Who would have ever thought a prison related site would break well into the TOP 100 of the world's largest forums!?

Don't look at me! It's all of your fault! lol.. So, you ladies (and some "gents") get the credit.

That is very impressive, no wonder you needed more staff. I think a lot of the credit goes to you. This must seem like a dream come true.

I don't wonder why. My brother has been in a Texas prison for the past 24 years. I was looking for some help writing a support letter a few days ago & I typed my info in "GOOGLE" search & found this site. I have learned more in the past few days than I learned in the past 24 years. I thank everyone for all the information they have provided.

I think its good news for the site, but I'm not real sure what to think of it otherwise. Is it a reflection on how many prison people has touched, or is it a curiosity factor. If its the fact that prison has touched that many people, I think that is very very sad.

hmmm, yeah, that occurred to me to. some of the "credit" must go to the government for creating the need, which is yucky- but getting us all together, that's GREAT. Talk about silver linings.

Thumbs up Keep up the great work !!!

To the whole staff at PTO,

I have benefited quite a bit from the information on this site. I just started to post this last few days and I get a feeling of support from total strangers. This is what is needed in this day of the "Police State" that we now live in. I want all that put this forum together and maintain it to know that I really appreciate their efforts… Keep up the great work all of you….Congratulations
