Storms bring record numbers on website

First published in News

THE Bridport and Lyme Regis News website experienced another record-breaking month for readers.

In February, the website recorded its highest ever number of page impressions with 180,111 pages of news and features being read online.

The number of unique users also doubled, with 42,123 people logging on to read the latest news and headlines.

The most read stories were all storm related, with the two busiest days on Wednesday, February 5 and Friday, February 14, when the worst of the storms pummelled West Bay and Lyme Regis.

Our two most popular stories were our comprehensive coverage on February 6 of the storms and the mounting cost authorities faced to repair damage, and the 400--tonne rock fall on to East Beach, West Bay.

Sister paper the Dorset Echo also posted impressive figures, with 290,734 people visiting its website and more than 2.5 million pages read.

Toby Granville, Bridport and Lyme Regis News editor said: “I am delighted that so many of our readers are logging on to get the latest news as it happens in their area.

“These record-breaking figures are a testament to the hard work of our teams, working round the clock to bring our readers the latest news headlines for west Dorset.”
