Hyperlocal site records two million page views in first 10 months

Neil SpeightA hyperlocal news website has recorded two million page views 10 months after launching.

Thurrock Nub News has achieved the milestone figure after becoming part of the independent network of news sites in November last year.

The site, run by Neil Speight, was previously known as the Thurrock Independent.

The milestone figure was achieved as Nub News announced the launch of its 50th UK site earlier this week.

Neil, pictured, said: “The past year has been extremely challenging, but Thurrock Nub News has passed the test and we will continue to bring the borough local, impartial and important news coverage and offer support to businesses and organisations in Thurrock.

“I am confident there are many more landmark statistics to come.”

Nub News chief executive Karl Hancock added: “I’m absolutely delighted that on the same day we’ve reached our 50th online newspaper in Dorset in Thurrock we have achieved this remarkable milestone of 2,000,000 page views.”
