Birmingham Post sees traffic surge

Unique users to the Birmingham Post website rose by 72 per cent over the last month, according to the paper’s editor Marc Reeves.

Reeves released the figure for the period of March to April this year in a post to microblogging service Twitter.

The site’s relaunch in February gave the online edition more emphasis on breaking news throughout the day and increasing interaction between the site and readers.

In particular staff and readers have been encouraged to join the paper’s group of expert bloggers as part of a ‘web-first’ outlook.
