Radio 1 Does Okay on Web Traffic

From Hitwise (and a gloating Sam):

Recent research from Hitwise UK shows that one in seven visits to online radio websites last week were to BBC Radio One. Searches for the station’s annual music festival, ‘radio 1 big weekend’ were almost triple the number of searches in 2007, as registrations for tickets opened last week. Searches for ‘maidstone kent’, the venue for this year’s festival, also spiked last week.

However 518,000 people did drop by to register for the Big Weekend.
