MetalGearSolid.nl exists 1 year!

Time sure flies. It’s already been a year since I started this website. It seems so much shorter.

Cheers-from-Granin

In its first year of the site has been doing beyond expectations. With over 200 subscribers and between 1500 and 2000 hits each day (and about a 1000 unique visitors), I am certainly satisfied with the results so far. Here are some of the highlights of the past year.

  • New Fox Engine screens scoop: Being the first website to post these screens, less than an hour after they got posted by Kojima himself, MetalGearSolid.nl had a good scoop here. It’s still easily the most viewed news post on the site, with over 36000 views and counting.
  • Articles are being appreciated: I’m very glad my articles (close up, top 5, etc) are quite popular sections of the website. For me this is the main thing of the site, where I can give my interpretation and views of the series, or look at some merchandise extensively. So it’s very nice to see people seem to appreciate them.

The total number of hits is now almost 400.000. It’s nothing compared to the biggest gaming sites of course, but still, almost half a million visitors on a site that didn’t even exist just over a year ago… I’m not complaining.

I have received a couple of very kind emails and comments by people who wanted to let me know they like the site. Thanks for that, it makes it worth the effort!

So I would like to thank everyone who contributed by commenting, liking, tweeting or just visiting the website. It’s much appreciated.

I’ve been having a lot of fun with this site, and I’m glad it’s doing well. I hope I will be able to maintain this site for many years to come.

It was stuck in my head and i still remember it. I’m very glad that i discovered MGS.nl! We’ll be here supporting you dude! N.1 fansite! Keep up the amazing job!
