… We’d say a big thank you to the 61,584 ‘absolute unique visitors’* who read Liberal Democrat Voice in September.

That’s almost 30% up on our August figure of c.48,000, and more than treble the equivalent figure for September ’09 of c.20,000.

This brings our absolute unique visitor readership for the last year to date (1 Oct 2009 – 30 Sept 2010) to 698,430, more than double the equivalent figure for 2008-09 of 344,608.

The 5 top-read stories during the month were:

  1. +++ EXCLUSIVE: The MEP, the erotic award, the picture (21) by The Voice
  2. Half a defence of Paul Staines (aka @guidofawkes) (34) by Stephen Tall
  3. Mail on Sunday’s shocking Ed Miliband revelations (43) by Iain Roberts
  4. Paul Staines, William Hague and questions for bloggers (35) by Iain Roberts
  5. Who will be the Liberal Democrat candidate for London Mayor? (38) by Mark Pack
