The top referring sites in 2010 were after the site domain names of  iowskaters.co.uk, iowfigureskaters.co.uk, were facebook.com, aolsearch.aol.co.uk, and search.bt.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for iwidfsc, isle of wight ice skating club, terri smith, wight jewels, and synchronized skating. The Jewels and synchro are big news!
