Should old acquaintance be forgot?

The death of Saab as a car brand has taken its toll on Saabs United. Many readers and writers have moved on to other brands. News about Saab is more and more scarce and it is harder to find anything interesting to report about. I have had a quite hectic year and have not written anything in a long time. I’ve had a couple of ideas in mind, but I never realized any of them.

Then something happened, I discovered Saab Cars Magazine and got inspired to write again. I’m not really qualified to do this at all. I am not a very good writer, I do not know many facts about Saab, and I’m a lousy photographer. But I do love the brand and have decided to contribute to Saabs United from time to time.

I miss many of the old writers and stewards of Saabs United. Swade has moved back to Australia and started to work for Brabham Automotive. I don’t know what Tim do these days.

Swade, Tim, Rune, RedJ, Trued and everyone else who used to write for Saabs United, it would be really nice if you occasionally would like to write a line or two again! I think all of us readers would appreciate that a lot. (log-in and comment if you agree)

Like myself, all readers can contribute to Saabs United. Press the contribute button if you have anything to share! That’s what I did a few years back when I wrote my first post about rust proofing. I encourage everyone to do the same.

I would also like to reach out to Claes Johansson at Saab Cars Magazine. Perhaps you would like to contribute to Saabs United? It may raise more international readers for the Saab Car Magazine!

Site statistics – February 2009

It’s time once again to see how many of you are poking around in the drawers of the SU-TS conglomerate. Site stats are reported because it keeps me motivated and interested, it provides a little interesting side content for you, our valued readers, and it shows Saab that there’s some value in this here internet thingy.
February 2009 was, of course, the first month of operations here at Saabs United. Consequently, I will combine the visitor numbers for both Trollhattan Saab and Saabs United.
The SU-TS group served a total of 348,046 pages during February this year, which is a rather massive increase over the 260,391 pages served by Trollhattan Saab in February 2008. It’s an even bigger increase over the 251,000 pageviews from last month.
Here are the individual and combined charts:

The big spikes are, of course, the announcements that GM and Saab made with regard to bailout plans and Saab persuing independence, and the decision to enter a reconstruction process.
Visitors came from all around the world, as usual. There were 50,045 unique visitors that came to TS and just over half that amount visiting Saabs United. The discrepancy there is primary due to SU’s reduced exposure in search engines, but will rise steadily in time as content becomes indexed and pages get linked up.
On to the fun parts – where the visitors came from….
