Saturday Seven Up (Advance Edition)

7upFor March the blog had some 186,420 visitors making some 1,060,747 visits to view 1,836,000 pages plus 1,038,250 views from feed readers making some 2.8 million views in total. The BBC’s Rory-Cellan Jones on the other hand says that according to Nielsen Netratings “with unique user figures well below 50,000” political blogs are too small to measure with accuracy.  This will come as a huge surprise to, Iain Dale, UK Polling Report et al who all have days, never mind months, with more traffic than that. Guido had a look at Nielsen’s Blogpulse service and couldn’t find a single British blog ranked. Even the massive celeb site wasn’t ranked.
