It's been an extremely good year for Place, with readership for the year to date totalling 198,613 unique visitors, up 369% on 2009, as Place reinforces its position as the leading title for property and regeneration coverage for the region.
The drastic growth reflects the fact that for three quarters of 2009 Place was still a paid-for subscription site, whereas it has been free throughout 2010.
Place is building a loyal readership with the majority of the 198,613 unique visitors returning to the site. November saw 26,140 unique visitors, compared to 13,781 in January.
Other key statistics for the period from 1 January to 20 December are total visits 514,333 (up 311% on 2009) and pages read 996,992 (up 228% on 2009).
