LifeSite traffic skyrockets in 2019, breaks 100 million pageviews for first time
December 19, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — LifeSiteNews is proud to announce that we have just surpassed 100 million pageviews for 2019! We have far surpassed our previous annual pageviews record of 65.9 million, set last year, with traffic growth of over 50%.
This is a huge milestone, and a testament to our rapidly increasing ability to get out news on the most important issues facing our culture today.
Because of the support of the LifeSite giving family, we are now averaging 283,000 pageviews each and every day! Last year, we averaged 180,000 pageviews per day.
This is no small feat, especially considering that Facebook and Twitter have ramped up their efforts to censor us in the last several years. Just this month, Twitter locked our account for sharing a story about a man who think's he's a woman.
LifeSite’s growth is thanks to one thing: its supporters.
And now, we have surpassed the 100 million mark! That’s 34.1 million more pageviews than last year. Wow!
Part of the reason we are reaching a larger audience is because people are waking up to the lies of the establishment media. People from across the world want the truth, unvarnished and without bias about the latest pro-life, pro-family stories.
Another reason is because we have branched out into new projects.
LifeSite reporters have ramped up their efforts and have gone on the ground in Rome, Texas, Michigan, Poland and elsewhere. The stunning photographs and videos they capture have helped us reach hundreds of thousands of new viewers on YouTube and Instagram.
Our YouTube channel currently has 56,700 subscribers - that's an increase of over 40,000 in the last year. Our Instagram page has 7,000 followers. Be sure to follow us!
These shows have garnered millions of listens and thousands of followers, putting our real impact far above the 100 million mark.
