by Stephen Tall on April 1, 2010

… We’d say a big thank you to the 58,552 ‘absolute unique visitors’* who read Liberal Democrat Voice in March.

That’s a huge 77% increase on our Feb. ‘10 figure of c.34,000, and we are up some 125% on the equivalent figure for March ‘09 of c.26,000.

This brings our absolute unique visitor readership for the last year to date (1 April 2009 – 31 March 2010) to 345,223, over 45% higher than the equivalent figure for 2008-09 of 237,536.
