Hyperlocal site celebrates reaching double milestone - Journalism News from HoldtheFrontPage | Hyperlocal and Local Media | Scoop.it

A Welsh hyperlocal website launched less than two years ago has received its two millionth page view and exceeded 10,000 monthly users.

Mywelshpool.co.uk was co-founded by former regional newspaper journalist David Williams who has attributed its success to the increase in rural smart phone and tablet use.

The site which covers a rural area of Powys has recorded two million page views in just 20 months and has welcomed 10,000 unique users in a one-month period for the first time since its launch, an increase of nearly 30pc compared to the same period last year.
