An internet site covering Coventry and Warwickshire has joined the country’s leading companies by attracting more than 100,000 visitors a month.

CWN, which stands for Coventry and Warwickshire Network, has doubled its traffic in the last year, making it one of the business success stories for the area.

It is the largest free, independent, privately funded news and information site in the country.

The site attracted 110,000 visitors in March - a 16 per cent increase on February’s figure.

These visitors accessed more than 260,000 pages, registering 2.6 million hits.

With the number of people logging on to the world wide web constantly on the increase, the company based in Coventry city centre is now hoping to get 250,000 visitors a month by the end of the year.

Founder and managing director Chris Studman said:

"It is rare for any company to double its business in a year and we are delighted that we are attracting interest from all over the world.

"About a third of our visitors are ex-pats wanting to keep in touch with the area.

"Every page is permanently available for people to read, and the site is often used as an information source by people wanting to research things that happened some time ago.

"There is a lot of media attention in the phenomenon."
