A new milestone for ssrf.org – 50 million visitors and counting
Starting out as a completely unknown website in 2006, www.ssrf.org, which is the website of the Spiritual Science Research Foundation, saw steady growth in the number of visitors to it over the years. However, from around 2012, the website started to experience an exponential growth in visits. Due to the value of the content published, Google started to list the SSRF website in the top 10 search results for various important keywords such as spiritual research, what does a lunar eclipse mean, life after death, spiritual healing, cremation vs burial, dead relatives in dream, what is sixth sense, etc.
On 15 January 2019 this year, the SSRF website completed its 13th year in existence. Two weeks later, on 29 January 2019, ssrf.org reached another milestone in the number of lifetime visits to the website since its launch by crossing the 50-million-visitor mark. The articles on the SSRF website have been viewed over 120 million times, which is 2.4 articles per visit. Over 2 million visitors came back to the website 9 or more times, indicating that the knowledge on the website is really providing value to people who are curious about the spiritual dimension and spiritual practice. Some of our readers have said to us that once they discovered the SSRF website, they spent the next 48 to 72 hours glued to the website absorbing all the knowledge that it had to offer.
Over the past 13 years, people from every country have visited the website, showing that the knowledge published on it has global appeal. This is because the knowledge cuts through cultural and religious barriers by providing information about spiritual principles and knowledge that are universal in nature. To meet this global interest in the knowledge, the website has been translated into 22 languages. The top 5 countries where visitors have come from are the United States, India, Indonesia, Germany and the United Kingdom.
Apart from the increase in the number of visitors to the website, SSRF’s presence on social media networks has also been growing. Here is a snapshot of our presence and reach on social media.
