Guyanese Online Website – 12th Year – now over 7.8 Million Views

Guyanese Online celebrated its 11th Anniversary in February 2021.

We have a large database of Guyanese worldwide.  Most of our readers (over 78%), are in the USA, Canada, and the UK & EU.

The website has carried articles and videos on Guyana, as well as articles and videos on a wide range of subjects that may be of interest to our readers, many of them non-Guyanese  We hope that you like our selections. On the anniversary, we have had over 7.3 millions views on the website.  This increases by at least 60,000 every month.   

Guyanese Online was NOT established as a business website. Its main goal was to offer FREE advertising to Guyanese Associations worldwide.  This goal has been achieved over the last 11 years, but the COVID pandemic has affected all organizations and there are no live events and very few publications. We hope that Guyanese Associations will recover quickly as life is normalized.

Here is some information on the readership for 2020:

1. Over the last 11+ years, Guyanese Online has focused on the Guyana Diaspora and Guyanese Associations in the Diaspora. This Diaspora is estimated at over a million Guyanese, when we include their descendants.
2. Most Guyanese have emigrated to the USA. The majority have settled in New York State, New Jersey, Washington DC area, Maryland, Virginia, Georgia, and Florida. For this reason, Guyanese Online carries articles on USA politics and other subjects that may be of interest to them.
3. Our statistics show that for 2020, (10 months as we did not publish in April and May), the total views were 760,128. The views from USA = 357,018 (46.96%); Canada =170,954 (22.49%); UK & EU= 65,507 (8.61%). These three geographic areas accounted for 78.06% of readers and is reflected in the content of the published entries.

However, work is now needed with website improvements. I have been the only person building this website and databases over the last 11+ years, but now I have hired personnel to help.

    I live abroad and find that Guyanese Online provides an invaluable service in keeping me up to speed the latest news, arts and other goings-on in the country.
    Congratulations on your first eleven years and long may you continue.

    • Ron Saywack.  On 02/10/2021 at 12:04 pm

      Agreed, Arthur:

      This site has been a revelation.

      Guyanese Online has taught me a lot about the land of my birth over the years. I was only 22 and a half years old when I left more than 45 years ago. Obviously, I did not spend much of my adult life there to get to know the country as well as others.

      My first and only job was at the New Amsterdam Magistrates Court – from January 1974 until May 1975 – before I was transferred to the Supreme Court in Georgetown where I worked for another two months before resigning to seek a better life far afield.

      What fascinates me most are the lucid memories of my fellow countrymen and countrywomen who can recite intriguing, personal stories with great details and incredible clarity: stories of their childhood neighborhood and who lived next door or down the street, tales of trips into the forest, encounters with wildlife and venomous snakes, the Amerindian way of life, and so on.

      Guyanese have great stories to tell and thanks to Cyril we can all tell our own as we simultaneously learn from our compatriots.

      May the site remain vibrant for many more years.

      Cheers, Ron.

    Cyril! Congratulations on eleven years of GO! You have been doing a fantastic job for the far-flung Guyanese diaspora on this planet. You have managed to feed us with the expected and the unexpected. I still do not know how you get this done day after day! Keep them coming, particularly as many of us are stuck in their home offices for the foreseeable time.

  • Ron Saywack  On 02/09/2021 at 4:09 pm

    Congratulations, Cyril, and best wishes in the years ahead.

    Let’s hope for another many more fascinating years of Guyanese Online.

    Cheers, Ron.

    P.S.: I’d like to see, if possible, a return of former regular commenters such as Veda and Gigi.

    • guyaneseonline  On 02/09/2021 at 5:44 pm

    Thanks Dear Cyril for affording me the opportunity of sharing my vast knowledge of our Beautiful Guyana it the articles of mine which you so graciously published over the years. Thanks a million. God Bless, and may you continue for many more years.

  • Frank Ewing-Chow  On 03/24/2021 at 12:43 pm

    The Good, Bad and Ugly….Thanks for the “news” of our beloved country and homeland..You and your website have been a welcome and refreshing breath of fresh air of “honest” opinion and commentary. Sometimes biased and in need of credibility and authenticated support but nonetheless someone else’s opinion which is just as good as one’s own. Keep up the good work and I am happy to support your efforts anytime as needed. Thank You

      Hi Frank:

      All the best. Stay safe!

    Guyana, a country of 83,000 mi² Population 2021 (Live) 791,046 (almost twice the size of New York) – this number has been of great concern to me personally, and I am quite sure for other Guyanese and their descendants worldwide. Now according to “world” the aformentioned figure is as recent as September 11, 2021 as it is their claim that “Guyana has experienced rather unstable growth and decline over the last fifty years and it’s currently growing very slowly, a trend that will last for some time.” Then they further went on to say “The current population of Guyana is 791,046 based on projections of the latest United Nations data. The UN estimates the July 1, 2021 population at 790,326.” Furthermore, it was added “Guyana Population 2021 (Live)

    Estimate as of September 11, 2021 is: 791,365

    Now with all these so-called data, above-mentioned, this number or approximate has been stagnated for as far as my memory serves me, 59 years and still counting. Guyanese love having kids, they are their biggest investment. Where is the CENSUS dollars are going to? It is very embarrassing to Guysnese to be mock at over a figure which basically says “your country has no births, nor deaths, DEBTS, yes.” Cry shame on all those administrations over the last 60 years or so who have been using the nation’s money to fan their “fanny,” and keeping Guyana stagnated. That’s why those with some common sense, wisdom and honest skills have flown the nest. Imagine more than 1 million Guyanese can be accounted for who live outside of Guyana, while Guyana’s Census Board over 6 decades have been in LALA Land when it comes to reporting close to accurate information on their Nation’s Population growth.
    New York is approximately 122,283 sq km, while Guyana is approximately 214,969 sq km, making Guyana 76% larger than New York. Meanwhile, the population of New York is ~19.4 million people (18.6 million fewer people live in Guyana).

      I am also interested in the continued numerical report on the population of Guyana. does everyone leave? why don’t we see some increase in the people living in Guyana? Yes, certainly there are likely to me at least one million living overseas, but why don’t the local numbers change?

  • Joan Seymour  On 12/29/2021 at 8:04 pm

    Congrats on the hard and worthy work of running this blog for so many years. May you have many more years ahead.

    • guyaneseonline  On 12/29/2021 at 10:19 pm
