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

… 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.

The 5 top-read stories during the month were:

1. Lord Clement-Jones on the Digital Economy Bill: web blocking amendment (246) by Tim Clement-Jones
2. Ooops! Mirror gets poll graph wrong and inflates Labour’s position (14) by Mark Pack
3. Election purdah period: what can and can’t be done? (0) by Mark Pack
4. Will £66,000 expenses claim sink Dawn Butler? (7) by Mark Pack
5. Roberta Blackman-Woods – desperately sabre-rattling on her MP’s expenses (2) by Stephen Tall
