Flight journalist David Kaminski-Morrow recently broke a new record for the site, notching up a million page views so far this year.
Deputy news editor David demolished last year's efforts with a whole bunch of cracking stories, maximising their impact through the use of videos and images to accompany the textual detail where possible. See below for a list of his top five.
The figures represent a huge increase on last year's best, when Max Kingsley-Jones scored 644,498 page views over the full twelve months. With four months of the year still to go, the annual record looks set to soar.
I think this step up in performance has many contriuting factors - it's not just David but all the Flight journalists that are pulling in more traffic than in 2007. However one key to their success is the use of our web analytics tool, which helps Flight journalists keep track of their performance, make sense of what works online and respond by tuning their output to the needs of the users.
