It was a good month for the GreaterBabylon community news site, which is now reaching nearly 200,000 page views since its launch in May of 2017.

That traffic came from about 115,000 unique visitors finding community news from Babylon, West Babylon, North Babylon and West Islip — on a daily basis.

If you’re unfamiliar with the site, GreaterBabylon is published through and is part of Greater Long Island Media Group LLC. The focus here is on news features, events, business, and education coverage, as opposed to crime and politics. (Share this post if you’ve had enough of crime and politics.)
