The Sun achieves record online traffic

Meanwhile it’s been a month of records for The Sun’s online traffic.

The Sun’s total monthly unique browsers have surpassed 50 million for the first time, with over 30 million in the UK.

The Sun’s daily unique browsers have passed 3 million, another record revealed in the latest ABC figures.

Keith Poole, The Sun Digital Editor, said: “The Sun Online continues to go from strength to strength, demonstrating the enduring power of The Sun brand online and the hard work and skill of the team we are putting together. We are very proud of our growth in October, particularly in our core UK market, which rose by 30 per cent month-on-month. We are especially pleased that almost on the one-year anniversary of the paywall being removed we’ve smashed a few landmark barriers: 30m monthly users in the UK, 50m globally and now enjoy a daily audience of more than 3m globally and 2m in the UK.”
