LDV doesn’t do statporn, but if we did (June ‘09)

by Stephen Tall on July 1, 2009

… We’d say a big thank you to the 37,801 ‘absolute unique visitors’* who read Liberal Democrat Voice in June, our third highest total ever. That’s a slight dip compared with last month’s 41k+ figure, but is a whopping 125% increase on a year ago.

This brings our absolute unique visitor readership for the last year to date (1 July 2008 – 30 June 2009) to 286,739, an increase of 110% on the equivalent figure for 2007-08 of 136,301.

The 5 top-read stories during the month were:

1. By-election results: Tories fail against Lib Dems (17th November 2006)
2. Tory claims for astrology CD (23rd June 2009)
3. Local elections – Friday open thread (5th June 2009)
4. European elections: rolling results news (7th June 2009)
5. County Council Elections 2009: Let’s stop this electoral manipulation now! (28th May 2008)

Whether you’re a regular here, or an occasional ‘popper-by’, we’re delighted you looked in. And if you enjoy reading LDV, why not try writing for LDV?

* Google Analytics’ term: it broadly means people using almost 38,000 different computers visited LDV at least once. Some people may be counted more than once (eg, home and work computer),whilst some people may not be counted (eg, two different people use the same computer, or someone reads the site through a feed reader without ever actually visiting it).

How on earth did a story about a by-election in 2006 become the top-read story for this month?

“In which universe?”

The post-ironic one, Paul.

@DT if you Google The Roman Party that story is one of the top matches. They were one of the fringe parties in last months Euros with pretty much no info about them online anywhere.

I’ve been trying to convince Jean-Louis Pascal to set up a blog, but he’s not overly concerned about communicating with the public.

Standing in elections is his hobby which he indulges when he’s not driving busses and he says he spent £7,000 on his euro campaign (which he partly funded through a £5,000 loan). I should also mention that Jean-Louis told me his boss, who happens to be the the deputy leader of the ruling Labour group in Reading, gave him the inspiration to take up politics as a hobby and regularly gives him advice on tactics (such as where to stand).
