Blog publisher Shiny Media recorded a 7 per cent increase in unique users to its network of sites in October, according to Google Analytics figures posted to the company’s blog.
Unique users to the blogs grew to 3.2 million for the month with 6.1 million page impressions.
Figures for individual titles for October included:
Crafty Crafty – a 40 per cent rise in unique users to 89,000
CorrieBlog – a 37 per cent rise in unique users to 79,000
Xboxer.tv – rise of 34 per cent
ShinyStyle.tv – rise of 28 per cent
Kiss and Make Up – rise of 24 per cent
In the blog post, Shiny co-founder Chris Price said the figures might be prompted in part by the economic downturn, as more people turn to lifestyle and home-based interest sites.
