Boca Shooting Leads To Record Traffic

BOCA RATON, FL ( — While we in no way want to undermine the importance and significance of Sunday's murder suicide-by-cop that left Germana and Ian Bulakoff dead, we believe it is relevant to share internal data which shows just how important this website has become to the community.

Our pages were viewed 20,830 times as readers sought information about the shooting from Sunday evening through 12:01 this morning.

That is a significant number when you consider is a very small operation — an operation that started as a hobby — covering the niche market of Boca Raton and South Palm Beach County.

We have watched in the past 18 months as the Palm Beach Post and Sun Sentinel have endeavoured to increase coverage of our community — finally realizing what we did when the site launched: Boca isn't just a punchline from shows like Seinfeld. It's a major community that is a vital part of South Florida's landscape — and deserves legitimate news coverage. We realize they don't have the resources to commit to full time coverage, but we certainly appreciate the effort.

Thanks to our readers and advertisers for making the area's top ranked hyper-local news website, and proving every day that “Boca Happens At”
