PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. -- The Calvert County Department of Economic Development
announced that their Web site received a record number of hits during July. The department received a total of 406,262 hits during July 2003. This is a 38 percent increase (or 111,132 hits) over the same reporting period last year, and the most hits received during a one-month period since the site's debut in 1998.
Visitors to the Web site continue to be very interested in the searchable Calvert County business database, a free advertising/listing service for all county businesses, as well as the classifieds job search, an online service offered free to any county business. The most popular area of the site during July was the Visitor Guide.
Calvert County was the first county in the greater Washington, D.C. region to provide a free, online employment classifieds service designed solely to assist county businesses in workforce recruitment. Additionally, Calvert provides free business listings for county-based businesses and free commercial real estate listings. In an effort to provide the most current information, Economic Development staff continuously monitors and updates the Web site to keep visitors informed of current activities, events and news, and to determine what information is most useful to customers.
