Earlier today, the LS News website broke half a million page views since going live on May 11, 2015 less than 30 months ago.
Those 500,000 views come from 942 published articles with contributions coming from 187 different student writers and photographers.
It should come as no surprise that a majority of LS News' web traffic comes via social media. Millennials might argue it as passé, but Facebook is the king of social media for LS News at least. Facebook alone is responsible for almost half the site's web traffic with approximately 215,000 page views. Every day, our Facebook page reaches between 2,000 and 3,000 people.
Interestingly despite having over 1,000 followers and generating nearly 20,000 weekly impressions on Instagram, the popular photo sharing network has only contributed about 2,600 page views to the actual LS News web site.
Every month our Twitter account makes about 30,000 impressions and overall has added 7,000 page views.
