Record traffic for BBC News website

May 12, 2010

The general election has been good for business on the BBC News website, with record traffic visiting the site to see the coverage, not just on election night but also for the days following, with meetings and talks between the parties taking place.

On the 7th May the BBC News website registered 100 million page views and nine million video playbacks.

Even the mobile site managed to get over a million page views.

This is excellent news for the BBC News department, especially as the BBC is currently looking to cut back in certain areas in order to save money.

Over the weekend the BBC News website covered the negotiations between the parties and received 5.7 million visitors on the Saturday and 5 million on Sunday.
