There is always something new to find out when doing this monthly chart. Alexa have had a tidy up of their site and have some information more readily available such as time spent on the websites and page view trends. So I have now started a new chart down at the bottom which covers time spent on the political website and makes for interesting reading.
For the regular chart it is with deep regret that it shows the BNP at the top of the chart again, They topped the first chart but had been sliding down but they now seem to be firmly at the top of political websites visited. I put it down to as many people against them looking as those support them ranting.
Labour also move up in the UK ranking so hold onto 2nd but the GREEN PARTY have now over taken UKIP and gone into 3rd place. They certainly seem to be doing something right as their traffic has increased and time spent on their website is top at over 14 mins.
UKIP have slipped down to 4th presumably the mid election lull and may go back up as it gets closer to the european elections next year.
Lib Dems saw a dramatic rise in their UK ranking and as such have nearly over taken the Conservatives. J4M&B are still slowly climbing even though they are still to stand a candidate in any elections.
NHA PARTY are the only party to drop from UK to GLOBAL rankings with the CHRISTIAN PARTY having so few visits they have dropped down to NO DATA. All the smaller parties are seeing a decrease in visitors at the moment and all rankings are lowering.
Now for the new part. Time spent on the site. The top three would not have been the ones I would have thought of which is GREENS, ALLIANCE & LIBDEMS. I have checked the figures and it seems people really do take in what is put on the sites. At the other end of the spectrum you have THE ENGLISH DEMOCRATS which capture the attention of its visitor for 47 seconds only.
Will be interesting to compare next month when I do Septembers political pop chart.
