The website analytics tracks each IP address that visits the site. IP is short for (Internet Protocol) address, a numerical label assigned to every device connected to a computer network that uses the Internet. We can also see what kind of device the site was accessed on, what browser they used, what pages each visitor looked at on the directory, how long they spent choosing and reading the information, and even how they got to Trusedsaskatoon.com (EG: Google Searches, Google Ads, Facebook or Trusted Partners websites!)
You can clearly see in the data above, 2017 and half of 2018 were tougher and visitor numbers were down. Although we still invested the same $ in marketing and had well over 35,000 people visit in our slowest calendar year. We believe this effect was due to the ‘boom' ending. It seems most consumers were nervous to spend their hard earned money on anything but the products and services they actually needed at that time.
Just look at the upturn in visitors that begin in the fall of 2018 and is really taking off in 2019 - over 18500 visitors ALREADY this year!! A record year may be in store for Trusted in 2019!

What about the last 12months?
As a local online DIRECTORY, Trusted Saskatoon's primary role is to connect consumers who are actively looking for products and services, to local businesses they can trust. The directory listings are extremely comprehensive - including verified customer reviews, images, and video. We also have a HUGE library of nearly 1000 articles right here in our Trusted Tips Section
- these helpful articles (blog posts) are mostly supplied by our local Trusted Saskatoon partners, who are the local experts in their industries. They are extremely well read and provide a unique local resource of information.
We are excited to continue our growth, as we welcome diverse and new Trusted Saskatoon partners every month to our community. In 2019 so far we have welcomed:
Occasionally we do part ways with businesses and sometimes we are asked why they leave. Some retire, close their business, move, change their business ownership or they simply choose to go in a different direction with their marketing. Occasionally we do have to make the tough decision to end the partnership. We do this if we feel that the fit is not right and that they are no longer in line with our overall mission, or that they are not committed to upholding the 5 Trusted Guarantees.
2019 is destined to be an amazing year, we have SO many amazing things coming your way Saskatoon! So watch this space! Thank you for your continued support of our Trusted Directories concept and our community Saskatoon!!
Supporting Saskatoon businesses, consumers, and the community is what we do BEST!
