We’ve seen giant growth on the site, Facebook and Twitter this year. Go us.

green_smiles, part of Gamer Network, has recorded record monthly traffic by serving 4,053,007 unique users (up 67% year-on-year) and 9,298,479 page views (up 48% year-on-year) in October 2014.

Mobile sessions have also increased dramatically since last October, up 118% to 2,598,552, while UK sessions rose 40% to 743,585.

The metrics are internal, taken from Google Analytics.

In addition, VG247’s social media presence has exploded in the last quarter, with Facebook likes now standing at almost 300,000. More than 130,000 people now follow VG247 on Twitter.

Said publisher Patrick Garratt: “VG247 continues to prove that a huge audience exists for its unique mix of news, op-eds, guides, giveaways, internationalism and general irreverence.

“We’re blessed with an exceptional, highly dedicated team in new Editor Matt Martin, US Editor Steph Nunneley and Australian Editor Brenna Hillier. Staff Writer Sherif Saed, an up-and-coming journalist based in Cairo, Egypt, joined us this year. Our current staff-group is extremely robust.

“While our editorial is solid, we’re also fortunate to enjoy a fantastic relationship with partner Gamer Network, and rarely have so many growth opportunities presented themselves. Based on our current levels of accruement, 2015 promises to be a banner year.”

VG247 launched in February 2008, and provides round-the-clock games reporting from editors in the UK, America, Australia, Egypt and France.
