Readership stats for April, for those interested.
So, yeah, that’s a thing.
We were expecting a big drop-off in both pageviews and readers after February, to be honest, when days of monstering in the Daily Mail sent our traffic through the roof. But as it happened, March only saw a small blip and this month we’ve set another new record, which would have surely crushed the 4 million views milestone if we hadn’t taken four days more or less off over the Easter weekend.
(April actually had 25% fewer posts than March – 101 compared to 134.)
Having amassed 16.1m pageviews in the whole of last year, we’re now at 13.4m in the first four months of 2014, and we’re knocking out roughly as many every three weeks as we got in all of 2012. We’ve reached 628,699 unique readers since January 1.
Tell you what, let’s keep going for at least one more month.
