The Atlantic Continues Online Surge

The Atlantic’s digital network continues to reach new heights, this time setting a record in May with 10 million unique visitors. This is the third time in the past five months the sites have posted record high traffic: January’s mark was eclipsed by March’s, which was then topped by May.

As we all know, May was also the month that Osama bin Laden was killed (or was he???), so naturally traffic was boosted virtually everywhere, but it’s still a nice achievement for The Atlantic.

Jay Lauf, Vice President and Publisher of The Atlantic, expects the good news to continue, adding, “Each new quantum leap in traffic has tended to be a leading indicator for us on the selling side. We should be poised for a big second half again.”

Check out a fancy graph detailing The Atlantic’s digital growth after the jump.
