2012 has been a very interesting year for Off Road Action. Probably the biggest news was the sale of the website to Curtis Guise. It was not an easy decision, but it was needed to bring Off Road Action to the next level. Curtis has some great ideas for Off Road Action in 2013 and we are both excited to see it through to the next stage. I still write articles and post photos on our Facebook and Pinterest pages, while Curtis has been writing articles, posting photos on Facebook and working behind the scenes on a new look for the website.

One of the first things Curtis did was bring a new line of clothing to Off Road Action. What do you think? You can purchase them online here.

In this article, we are going to look back at the Off Road Action website in 2012. We also did this for 2010 and 2009. This may bore some of you, but I find it interesting to find out what articles were the most read throughout the year, what search terms brought the most visitors and what website links sent the most visitors. More for Curtis and myself, it gives us an idea what readers are interested and where we need to improve our search engine optimization.
