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

by Stephen Tall on November 4, 2010

… We’d say a big thank you to the 62,745 ‘absolute unique visitors’* who read Liberal Democrat Voice in October.

That’s a notch up on our September figure of c.61,000, and double the equivalent figure for October ’09 of c.30,000.

This brings our absolute unique visitor readership for the last year to date (1 Nov 2009 – 31 Oct 2010) to 651,902, getting on for double the equivalent figure for 2008-09 of 353,311.

The 5 top-read stories during the month were:

  1. Nick Clegg writes to Lib Dem MPs over tuition fees (180) by The Voice
  2. Vince Cable’s statement on tuition fees (151) by The Voice
  3. 10 things you may not have noticed from the Labour leadership results (24) by Simon McGrath
  4. Vince: why I’m saying ‘No’ to the graduate tax (97) by Stephen Tall
