Our thanks to the good people who run a website dedicated to the run-up to the 2015 general election, now less than 14 months away. Each month they inform of us the chart of ‘hits’ on political parties’ websites, and month by month we’ve been moving steadily up that chart. They’ve just sent us the following message:
Latest chart is out… one more month, and you could be as busy as the main parties.
A link to the chart:
Traffic to our site has grown steadily since we launched J4MB, just 14 months ago, and continues to do so. Small further increases in traffic will translate into considerable progress in these rankings. Our success in stimulating interest and debate has surpassed our wildest expectations. The current level of traffic to our site is all the more remarkable, given we’ve been around for little more than a year. The most recently-formed of the main parties, UKIP, has been around for about 20 years, and focuses on an issue of considerable interest to a large number of British people, EU membership.
I was also encouraged to read of the sure indicator of interest shown in the parties’ websites, average visitor attendance times:
J4MB – 2:52
UKIP – 2:56
Conservatives – 2:15
Labour – 1:56
Onwards and upwards!
