Twin Site

A few visitors may have noticed that Best of Sicily has a "mirror" site at bestofsicily.info (the main site is bestofsicily.com). There are several reasons for this, and most revolve around the cryptic, arcane world of search engine indexing.

Our site has seen an increase in traffic in recent months, from an average number of unique visits of around 5,000 per day to something approaching 7,000. With this, the site has come under attack from hackers (with their automatic spiders and other programs) launched from servers in China and the Netherlands by companies in New Zealand and elsewhere selling prescription drugs. As one of several security measures, we have launched the "clone" site. This will not change your experience with Best of Sicily, but it may ensure that we are still available for you to read.
