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

by Stephen Tall on May 1, 2010

… We’d say a big thank you to the 114,614 ‘absolute unique visitors’* who read Liberal Democrat Voice in April.

That’s DOUBLE our March 2010 figure of c.57,000, and we are up some 270% on the equivalent figure for April ‘09 … anyone would think there was an election on.

This brings our absolute unique visitor readership for the last year to date (1 May 2009 – 30 April 2010) to 421,146, over 67% higher than the equivalent figure for 2008-09 of 251,110.

The 5 top-read stories during the month were:

* Google Analytics’ term: it broadly means people using almost 115,000 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).
