Bumper month on Argus website
6:00pm Sunday 3rd February 2013 in News
January was a record-breaking month for The Argus online, with hundreds of thousands of people coming to us for the news.
The combination of snow, the Brighton and Hove Albion players trial and the thrill of transfer deadline day contributed to the record numbers.
During January, 565,516 individuals visited the site 1,535,742 times to view 4,793,271 pages.
There was a whopping 86,959 views of The Argus live snow blogs, which provided an invaluable service to readers who wanted to keep up-to-date with the latest traffic, travel and weather news, as well as school closures.
Tuesday, January 22, the night drivers had to abandon their vehicles in Falmer Road due to heavy snow, was the busiest day with almost 297,000 page views.
This was followed by Wednesday, January 23, when the live blog received 10,000 views between 6am and 7am.
It is never too early for reporters to start live updates when snow is on the ground, and we know people want their information first before they head off for work or the school run.
We also strive to engage with our readers, and our picture gallery of your snow photographs attracted 107,643 views.
Adding to this was our video collection bringing you a different perspective.
And we even had one of our reporters fitted with a headcam as he cycled through the snow, to give you another viewpoint.
The site also had a social media feed making sure your Tweets were included in the debate and updates.
But it is not just for the snow that we have used live blogs to bring you the latest news.
A total of 86,102 people have followed our daily live updates of the Brighton and Hove Albion players’ trial at the Old Bailey.
The four players are accused of sexual assault and the trial continues into early February.
Our sports team also used a live blog to capture the real-time thrills and spills of the January window transfer deadline.
The live blog ran for 15 hours until 11pm on January 31, attracting 38,220 views.
