Elections, lingerie and Bedlam football — a record-breaking combination

First, we had the 2010 Elections.

Then, we had the Lingerie Football League story.

Finally, we finished with Bedlam.

In the end, NewsOK broke another record for page views, unique visitors and blog views in November. It’s the second consecutive record-breaking month.

I knew we’d have a big push with our 2010 Election coverage. We always do. But I very much expected traffic to slow a bit as we inched closer to a long weekend around Thanksgiving.

But then came the story about the Lingerie Football League.

That story went viral, receiving high traffic from referrals from the popular Drudge Report website.

After the Lingerie Football League story, it became clear that we would overcome a sluggish Thanksgiving weekend for web traffic and break another monthly audience record.

However, the sluggish Thanksgiving weekend wasn’t even that sluggish. As a matter of fact, we spiked with our coverage of the Bedlam game, thanks the intense audience interest in that game and the extensive multimedia coverage we provided.

Bottom line: NewsOK’s audience continues to grow. We thank you for coming to our website for the most comprehensive coverage of Oklahoma and the things important to Oklahoma.
