For the first time, the EROPA website (eropa.org.ph) has ranked in the world's top 0.5% in terms of popularity, jumping up 14 million notches in the rankings. This is a marked increase despite a noticeable reduction in major linking sites (down to 21 from 33). In addition, it has ranked nationally for the first time as well (at 35,955 in the Philippines). Using the ranking website Alexa Internet (which ranks only the top 30 million or top 25% websites) and comparing it with Internet Live Stats (which has the total number of live websites), the EROPA website's popularity has been regularly monitored since late 2016.
This recent accomplishment may not seem too much for many of us, but it is evidently a testament to the improvements done and additional features included in the new and revitalized website. It also shows how effective the energetic social media revitalization has become. However, the work is not done. This is just the beginning of the good pace we are currently taking.
Furthermore, an independent Wikipedia editor (presumably from Australia) created a Wikipedia article for EROPA, which can be accessed here, last April. The article was largely referenced by the updated website, which was renewed and improved last January. EROPA's relevance in the new century is evident with its inclusion in the so-called Free Encyclopedia.
Reaching further! Moving faster! We are EROPA, the premier organization working towards effective and efficient public service and governance.
