News and jobs for journalists :: Times claims traffic boom up to 8 million users

Times claims traffic boom up to 8 million users: "Times Online's audience has increased from 1.5 million to 8 million unique users in just 18 months, according to online editorial director Peter Bale.

Speaking at the Blogging4Business conference yesterday in London, Mr Bale said that a quarter of Times Online's content is now commissioned specifically for the website and that comment and opinion is what differentiates Times content from rival news sites."

Amazing what happens when you peek out from the firewall.
