VG247 doubles traffic record

7.9 million uniques and 18.2 million pageviews last month

News specialist VG247 more than doubled its traffic record last month, securing 7.9 million unique users and 18.2 million page impressions over the course of November, a 113 per cent increase on its previous record in November 2014.

"VG247's growth continues unabated, and we expect to see all metrics dramatically accelerate in 2016," said site publisher Patrick Garratt.

"I want to say a huge thank you to the site's exceptional team: editor Matt Martin; deputy editor Brenna Hillier; news editor Stephany Nunneley; and staff writer Sherif Saed.

"This is a highly experienced and monstrously talented unit of which I have nothing but the utmost respect. I'm stunned at what we've achieved this year. I'd also like to extend massive thanks to our commercial partners at Gamer Network, without whom our relentless expansion would be impossible."

November is a key month for many gaming specialist sites as the release schedule heats up before Christmas, with traffic generally rising as a result.

Full disclosure: VG247 is a partner site of GamesIndustry.biz parent company Gamer Network. Editor Matt Martin was previously the editor of this site.
