Records tumble at Techday: Our biggest week ever

29 Feb 2016

Each of the websites within the Techday network have demanding weekly page impression targets. We're accustomed to achieving them, but in the last week of February, we absolutely annihilated them. In fact, we had our biggest traffic week ever.

"Last week was breathtaking, out of our network of twelve websites seven of them hit all-time records," says Sean Mitchell, Techday publisher. "Also when I say records, I mean they smashed those records with some even doubling our previous bests."

While overall across the network we achieved 222% of our impression target, these sites lead the pack:

"Our incredible week wasn't off the back of an automated feed of US content, but a record-breaking 190 stories that we produced locally within our own editorial team," says Mitchell. "I couldn't be prouder of how well our team has done."

This is in addition to sending out a total of 413,863 email newsletters across the network over the week, with a bounce rate of just 0.02%.

"We also achieved these massive reader impressions whilst maintaining an awesome 0.23% click-through rate on advertising, which is well ahead of the industry average of 0.15%," Mitchell adds. "Our reach is becoming unprecedented in the Asia Pacific region."
