    {url not allowed} claims that it has grown from 1000 visitor per year in 1996 to 2,000,000 a year in 2006.

    Please check Related Info for: {url not allowed}/ . It rates website for last 5 years. If anything the traffic is currently going down. Then I don't understand how come they are claiming to serve more people today than last 10 years.

    To tell the thruth, I dont see why this is an issue to worry about. I think its marvellous that Sikh sites are making such hits a year!!!..Hurray for Sikhi.!!:D

    Personally, I do agree with them getting an increase yearly visitor traffic. They have Mrsikhnet.com, they use to have the wonderful audio Hukumnama translations by Bhai Sukha Singh, they had the youth video competition recently, they also have more traffic generated from their Guru Ram Das tour, kundalini yoga classes, Bhai Gurukha and MrSikhnet himself participating in Sikhi camps in various worldwide locations, their contributions to SikhiWiki.com, Bibi Snatam Kaurs worldwide fame, their discussion forums, their connection to the Khalsa security firm, their connection to the Miri Phiri Acedemy in Punjab and lots lots more I could mention...... THEY ARE FAMOUS!!!!!!!
    I myself make daily visits both to sikhnet and mrsikhnet blog thru sikhnet.

    >>>To tell the thruth, I dont see why this is an issue to worry about.<<<

    - Well the reason why it could be an issue is that people need to know the truth - the whole truth nothing but truth...

    So if Sikhnet claims something and it's not true, then it become deception, especially when it used to convince people to donate money. That's all...:)

    Firstly, do you have prove that there is deception? Personally I dont think there is.!

    Secondly, donating to sites that promote Sikhi is a good thing. Absolutely nothing belongs to us at the end of the day. All is Waheguroo's.

    Like Gurdwara's, sites like Sikhnet need Sangats funding to run. There are very hard working sevadaars running that site.

    If you dont want to donate to them, then dont. Personally, I thing its wrong of you to even publish your post about Sikhnet.

    Gurumustuk Singh has been doing a great job. PCJS ji, if you have question about {url not allowed}, it is better to raise this question there, instead of any speculations here.

    Bhull chukk maaf
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
