2 August 2012
GayStarNews.com, the world’s first rolling gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender news and entertainment site is taking the world by storm and has now passed the quarter-million users a month mark.
GSN has only been live for eight months but has soared past its targets with massive monthly audience growth every month. We have now reached 292,000 unique visitors (different people visiting the site) in July alone – and they checked out more than 550,000 pages. It shows how GSN is rapidly becoming the leading choice for LGBT news in over 200 countries worldwide.
The GSN team is headed up by experienced gay journalists and editors Tris Reid-Smith and Scott Nunn.
Tris, the editor, said: ‘We want to send out a massive thank you to everyone who has supported GSN and continues to use our site day in, day out.
‘We really appreciate your comments as your involvement makes a big difference to us. By listening to what you want, we can make GSN better and that’s what makes it more popular. That’s why we have massively grown our social media following to around 50,000 people across our range of platforms.’
Scott, director of marketing and sales, said: ‘Our success has meant international brands want to build a relationship with GSN. Alfa Romeo, Radisson hotels and Lufthansa, to name but a few, have come on board and benefited from our tailored service.’
