Free Movement has just hit one MILLION, er, hits. As with Dr Evil, that isn’t actually a lot of hits in today’s world, but for a small, specialist legal blog it isn’t bad going.
Time for some reminiscing…
The first post was on 7 March 2007, when Dr Reid was still Home Secretary. The blog his half a million views on 30 April 2010 and has, with a John O induced blip, been gaining page views rapidly since then, with over 40,000 page views per month now. There are around 900 email subscribers as well, and just short of 500 Twitter followers.
The most popular posts in the last 12 months have been: Zambrano case, Quila case live on web TV and Another legacy cases update. At one point about a month or two ago Free Movement came on page 1 of Google searches for the word ‘discrimination’, just below the Equalities and Human Rights Commission. How that works is utterly beyond me.
What does the future hold? Not sure, we’ll see.
