A record 34,000 people visited the Worksop Guardian’s website last week.

And in the whole of 2013 the number of people using increased by an impressive 18 per cent on the previous year.

Last year also saw our website receive more than 2million hits.

Our increased use of multi-media also continues to play a key role in the Guardian’s online success, with video featuring in many of our most popular web stories, including crime, other hard news, sport, weather and showbiz reports.

Editor Ben Green said: “The Guardian goes from strength to strength with its unrivalled news and sport coverage of the Bassetlaw and Dinnington areas.”

“There has never been a better time to advertise with the Worksop Guardian. With the combination of the newspaper and website were are now reaching a larger audience than ever.”

“We’re delighted with our success and would like to thank all readers for their support.”

The Guardian is celebrating its superb online audience growth as its parent company announced the appointment of a new digital leader.

Jeff Moriarty, vice president of digital products for The Boston Globe, is now chief digital & product officer for Johnston Press, publisher of the Worksop Guardian.
