This week Botanical Art and Artists hit a MAJOR milestone - 500,000 (that's half a million) visitors since the website started in April 2015.
I knew it was coming up but I totally missed it! (Apparently it happened on Tuesday).
I'd like to extend very many thanks to all those botanical artists around the world - and other fans of botanical art - who have been visiting my website Botanical Art and Artists since it started in April 2015.
The website is not yet three years old but has been seeing exponential growth in traffic to the site over its life to date - which looks set to continue in 2018.
The first month of 2018 has already outdone the whole of 2015!
Of course, increasing traffic is, in part, due to the growth in content on the site over the last three years. There's more for people to look at - and more for them to revisit over time.
I added the https version of the site to Google Search Console last weekend (having not previously realised that you MUST add in the https version as well if you want your site indexed). In the process I added a site map for the site which came back telling me there are now 391 URLs associated with the site - including all the blog posts!
So if you've not had a look around before - and found the pages below the top level of the site - do please take a look.
I'm sure you will be pleasantly surprised by the range of content on offer - including:
1) the leading contemporary Botanical Artists and Illustrators on every continent - Botanical Art Societies and Groups around the world - including National & Regional Botanical Art Societies, Florilegium & other groups
3) Pages about the History of Botanical Illustration and Art and famous past masters from different countries
4) Exhibitions, Permanent Collections & Galleries around the world
5) Education & Tuition via classes, courses, and tutors, diplomas and certificates around the world & tips and techniques
My original aim was to provide a compendium that would both
