BuzzFeed reaches record 110 million video views

Social news and content site BuzzFeed logged a record high of 110 million video views in November, with 13 of its videos each receiving more than 1 million views.

The firm, which is a major original content creator on YouTube, said that it signed up more than 3 million subscribers to its channel in the month, marking 160% growth over the last six month.

Overall, the site said that November was its biggest traffic month ever, reaching more than 130 Million unique visitors globally – a 350% year-on-year increase.

“Much of this growth was driven by Facebook’s recent shift towards driving traffic to quality publishers,” said BuzzFeed.

The site, which was founded in 2006, added that “more people visited BuzzFeed in November than in the first four years of the site’s existence.”
