There's a larger version of this graph HERE, but the green line is my blog, red, the Labour website and the Blue, the Tory website. Apparently more people have searched for my name than John Prescott's. Worrying!
In fairness, I should point out that Guido is getting even more hits, as THIS analysis shows. So what does this all show, apart from being nice to hear for Guido and me? For blogs such as ours to have overtaken main Party websites is quite astonishing. It shows that people are very happy to get their political information from an increasingly diverse range of resources. The natural implication is for all three political parties to try to influence the output of the blogs.
Thanks to Heather Hopkins at Hitwise for all the analysis.
UPDATE: The Press Gazette has a major feature on political blogging HERE. Some choice extracts...
Colin Brown, The Independent's deputy political editor, who wrote a biography of Prescott, says accusations that journalists deliberately sit on stories are "laughable". Michael White, The Guardian's assistant editor, says bloggers are wrong to think they aren't subject to libel laws. "Of course they are," he says.
Michael, I've said this in every single broadcast interview I've done!
