Riverside Zoo Official Website

The Riverside Discovery Center has a new website by Hale Multimedia LLC of Scottsbluff, Nebraska.  Visit

There have been several unofficial sites over the years and even some that are on the search engines still.  However, the only official site sanctioned by the RDC is the one mentioned above.  We are working on getting the folks who put up the unofficial sites to cooperate by either removing the old outdated sites, or by turning them over to the Riverside Discovery Center.

I have personally visited zoos from all over the world.   Sure, the San Diego Zoo and Omaha's Henry Doorley Zoo are some of the best in the country, and I will never forget my trip to the Berlin Zoo in West Germany either.  However, when it comes to small towns, The Riverside Zoo is so much better than most.  The worst 'big city' zoo I have every been to was the one in Austin Texas.  The Riverside Discovery Center Zoo blows them away - and Austin is the capital of a large, populated state!

One of my favorite features of the Riverside Zoo is their new Splash Pad.  Your children will love it.  Mine like to go to the zoo just to go to the Splash Pad sometimes when it's really hot.  Check out today and click on the cool photos of the animals you will see there!

The Scottsbluff-Gering area has a lot to be thankful for.  If you have been to other zoos in the country, you will understand and appreciate The Riverside Zoo and Discovery Center!  By the way, our 17 year old daughter designed the new website under our direction at Hale Multimedia LLC.  Our website portfolio can be viewed on our website at

Thanks for visiting, both virtually and physically!

AgMarketOnline sets new records

It's been alot of fun tracking the progress of as it grows.  We started this Ag-focused online directory in 2004 and it has continued to break it's own records year after year.

This year we have seen significant monthly increases in traffic with our average visitor viewing 10 pages!

Records that were broken in May 2011 included;
  • Most Unique Visitors per Month  : 11,600    old record  :  9477
  • Most Pages Viewed per Month : 100,671    old record  :  78,150
  • Average Unique Visitors per Day : 386         old record  :  307
  • Average Pages Viewed per Day : 3355        old record  :  2520

As we have always taught, 'hits don't mean ....'   Ignore companies bragging about how many 'hits' they get.  What matters are unique visitors and pageviews.

More on this progress later.  This transcript was prepared for our online radio broadcast at  each weekday from 7-8 am daily.
