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

… We’d say a big thank you to the 136,557 ‘absolute unique visitors’* who read Liberal Democrat Voice in May.

That’s over 20% higher compared to our April 2010 figure of c.112,000, and we are up some 227% on the equivalent figure for May ’09. Anyone would think there had just been a general election. In fact, the site passed 100,000 unique visitors by 14 May … which suggests traffic has stabilised since at c.2,500 absolute uniques a day.

This brings our absolute unique visitor readership for the last year to date (1 June 2009 – 31 May 2010) to 503,653, over 87% higher than the equivalent figure for 2008-09 of 268,359.

The 5 top-read stories during the month were:

1. What should the party do next? Have your say by 2pm on Saturday (396) by Mark Pack
2. Deal or no deal? Here’s what I think (300) by Stephen Tall
3. Philippa Stroud: the disappearing Conservative candidate (195) by Mark Pack
4. What Lib Dem members think about talking to the Tories: LDV poll results (90) by Stephen Tall
5. Confusion reigns over 55% – the reality is rather different (243) by Iain Roberts

And the top 5 traffic sources for Lib Dem Voice in May were:

  • Google
  • Twitter
  • Lib Dem Blogs aggregator
  • Survey.LibDems.org.uk
  • Iain Dale

Whether you’re a regular here, or an occasional ‘popper-by’, we’re delighted you looked in.

* Google Analytics’ term: it broadly means people using almost 137,000 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).
