New subscribers dropped a modest 2.2 percent last year compared with Y2000*. According to requests via auto-responder or simple email, the total number of subscribers in 2001 was 89. Average number per month: 7+. The number is neat from people who sent error or invalid request of subscription (some Nixies). You may count a dozen of this kind.
Frequent readers profile was updated on the charts here: http://www.dmlr.org/come/stat.htm
About languages I would remember DMLR*News is available in two versions and delivered as email for Italian- (93%, -4 points over 2000 percentage) and English-readers (7%, +4).
*Note: in June 2000 DMLR website started from scratch. Details on DMLR*News GOLD IV.
The prime feedback derives from searching the users do for reading documents by means of the internal search engine powered by Atomz. In the past 6 months people had done over 600 searches, but considering only 2 out of 11 pages where search entry is made possible.
To better use this important function --that save your time-- see at point #2 the tips about how efficiently hunt your desired topic out.
The second feedback from you allows to rank the sources a website is first well-known and then visited from. This is the ranking for www.dmlr.org:
Other websites 13%
Other means 8%

Results as of January 3rd, 2002. Poll started in July 2001. To get your vote go to ONLINE POLL.
Playing the numbers game required the stats on hits as counted from visiting to the main page in Italian (Oct--Dec 01). The statistics on the visits to the home page started on Oct. 14. According to weekly Netscape Hitometer Service hits were counted as
421 in Oct., 705 in Nov., 485 in Dec..
Progressive counting totalized 1611, so avarage hits are about 20 daily.
Page=index.html / Hits / Average n. per day
OCT. 421 / 24
NOV. 705 / 23
DEC. 485 / 15
TOT. 1611 / 20
To zero in on website attendees I devised a formula giving a ball park figure from HITS. The global number of visits to www.dmlr.org be equal to a figure in the range from 600 to 900 per month.
Many letters I have received in the past months were asking for specific information in aid of personal job and/or studying.
Most answers are available directly from the resources I have already selected for all you and set up at DMLR. So far you had probably read this email news but did not dig into the about 4Mb contents of the website I'm running. Nowadays it's time to feed your growing demand by helping the readers and visitors get the most out of searching amid over 200 DMLR files! It's useful to include search tips with this new issue. Hope everybody gets the best possible search result, which ultimately helps you find what you are looking for. Many users may not be aware of common search syntax, the use of which can dramatically improve search results. Here are some examples to be aware of when you go search by simple or ADVANCED form:

IV. Direct Marketing.
Banner marketing is finding out and offering online what your customer wants. I have written some hints on this DM medium that is providing useful and measurable action over the Internet (http://www.dmlr.org/joint.htm).
From January 2002 ad banner space is disposable on the three main pages at www.dmlr.org for advertisers wanting to reach an audience shaped by managers, professionals, students that are interested in marketing stuff. Ad placement involves:

VI. Why Art Works.
Art OnLine: The Art Factor -- Communication And Publicity.
Finally I published a magazine as reprise of a 1999 draft.
It has been written: "the arts are very good for business... and business is very good for arts". This statemet would surely encompass the arts as a whole coming from a brochure by the largest concentration of cultural facilities in the world. The proxy wedding between the artists and the marketing of goods is always feasible in an attempt to originally personalize the packaging or the promotion or the advertising of products. A thin thread runs between the modes to advertise products and the cultural vehicles or artistic expressions as media involving people into. This article reviews the multi-talented artistic community populating the Internet. The selected websites are familiar with artists, so visit them to know what you might do for supporting their activity as member, sponsor, subscriber, consumer! Read full article on Top4 magazine
More: my ARTware portal is the personal expression of the best websites addressed to art lovers! It continues the series of very simple pages --just 9Kb-- very speed to upload but not so modest in appearance (dmlrART.org)
