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

by Stephen Tall on August 5, 2010

… We’d say a big thank you to the 50,627 ‘absolute unique visitors’* who read Liberal Democrat Voice in July.

That’s 5% up on our June figure of c.48,000, and up some 129% on the equivalent figure for July ’09 of c.22,000.

This brings our absolute unique visitor readership for the last year to date (1 Aug 2009 – 31 July 2010) to 608,812, some 84% higher than the equivalent figure for 2008-09 of 330,218.

The 5 top-read stories during the month were:

  1. Have you seen Zac Goldsmith’s Channel 4 News car-crash interview yet? (75) by Stephen Tall
  2. Opinion: I admit it, I am shocked by Labour’s hatred (311) by Nick Perry
