Blogger Guido Fawkes (aka Paul Staines) is crowing today over his web figures which were boosted by his scoop on the Downing Street "smear emails" story.
Guido reports: "April saw a total of over 3.6m pageviews from 1,382,879 visits by 347,994 visitors making 2,995,765 pageviews plus 680,207 views via RSS feed readers. Not bad for one guy with a laptop, Blackberry and a penchant for Guinness."
He adds: "With traffic averaging over 100,000 pageviews daily this blog puts traditional political publications like the New Statesman in the shade . . .Many thanks to you the readers and the advertisers who make this blog more profitable than both the Guardian and Independent combined."
