Despite the recent Arianna-Arrington drama, which seems to have come to an end, AOL Canada saw a consistent growth in the number of Canadians that visited their properties which has bumped it up to the #4 position in the portal category, ahead of the Canoe network. During the month of August 2011, AOL Canada saw more than 10 million monthly unique visitors, a 10 per cent increase from July, this is the largest monthly increase compared to top portal and news competitors. Their acquisition of The Huffington Post and hiring of editorial team resulted in growth of 21 per cent to 1.9 million UV’s, surpassing National Post sites for the second consecutive month.
“AOL Canada is acting on our 2011 commitment to build a smart, creative and competitive team in every part of our business, including signature channels like The Huffington Post Canada,” said Graham Moysey, General Manager, AOL Canada. “And with our solid group of both media and editorial contributors in place, we will create an even bigger and better splash in 2012.”
Looks like the Graham “Turn Around King” Moysey is earning his pay, and having fun making results happen, the man continues to make every organization he works for better and builds strongs teams around him.
