LDV doesn’t do statporn, but if we did (Jan. ‘10)

by Stephen Tall on February 1, 2010

… We’d say a big thank you to the 38,593 ‘absolute unique visitors’* who read Liberal Democrat Voice in January.

That’s a big jump, unsurprisingly, compared to our December ‘09 figure of c.28,000 – and is up some 60% on the equivalent figure for January ‘09 of c.24,000.

This brings our absolute unique visitor readership for the last year to date (1 Feb 2009 – 31 Jan 2010) to 309,123, over 40% higher than the equivalent figure for 2008-09 of 218,360.

The 5 top-read stories during the month were:

1. Revealed: the Lib-Con pact election poster (34) by Stephen Tall
2. EXCLUSIVE: Standards Commissioner rules four journalists broke Parliament’s rules (6) by Mark Pack
3. What do we want? Section 63 of the Metropolitan Paving Act 1817 of course (22) by Mark Pack
4. Gina Ford vs Nick Clegg (16) by Mark Pack
