Eurogamer has announced that the latest ABC Electronic audit confirms that the site had over 3.7 million unique users in November last year. That’s more than double 2007’s figure for the same month.

“The results are particularly pleasing as both the UK site increased significantly to 2.3 million unique users during the month, and our more established European editions showed impressive numbers too,” Eurogamer MD Rupert Loman said.

“With over 750,000 unique users in Germany, over 250,000 in Portugal and almost 200,000 in France the European network is really doing well.”

He added, “If you were to take into account GamesIndustry.biz as well the business is now reaching well over 4 million unique users per month.”

Eurogamer smashes its traffic records in latest ABCE audit

Brighton, England, January 15th, 2009: Eurogamer today announces that its latest ABC ELECTRONIC audit confirms that the site was visited by over 3.7 million unique users in November 2008 – more than double 2007’s figure.

Total qualifying traffic for the certification period 1 November – 30 November 2008, as audited by ABC ELECTRONIC:

Unique users: 3,706,889 (+102% year-on-year)
Page impressions: 22,962,028 (+56% year-on-year)

The November results capped off a fantastic year for the company – the site was also awarded “Best Games Website” at the Games Media Awards in October.

Rupert Loman, managing director of Eurogamer, commented, “The results are particularly pleasing as both the UK site increased significantly to 2.3 million unique users during the month, and our more established European editions showed impressive numbers too. With over 750,000 unique users in Germany, over 250,000 in Portugal and almost 200,000 in France the European network is really doing well.” He added, “If you were to take into account GamesIndustry.biz as well the business is now reaching well over 4 million unique users per month.”

As Eurogamer approaches its 10th birthday, there are no plans to slow down – additional local sites will be launched in the coming months to fill out the European network, the events business is to be expanded following the overwhelming success of the first Eurogamer Expo, and new websites will be launching too.

Eurogamer was the first UK games website to subject itself to audit back in 2005 and has committed to auditing annually. The latest audit certificate can be downloaded from http://www.abce.org.uk/search/eurogamer/

    Ah, another opportunity to seethe with jealousy and barely-constrained wrath. Fantastico.

    lol, You wanna know why?

    Its all because of those LittleBigPlanet & PS Home Beta Codes.

    Hardly surprising to be honest.

    Good to see we’re still healthily cynical about a home grown success story. :(

    I’d still much rather read EG over IGN or Gamespot any day of the week.

    “lol, You wanna know why?

    LBP codes weren’t in November, and EG never gave away Home codes.

    Additionally, the physical window of opportunity that people had to get keys was literally hours, and the servers couldn’t cope any way :)

    Spin this whichever way you want, but the bottom line is that EG is doing phenomenally well.
