Traffic statistics


Yellow Advertiser gets over 26,000 hits per month from visitors in the local area, and this number is growing all the time. 

Take a look at these stats for the last two months (Oct 15th - Dec 15th 2019). As you can see, most of our local audience in this period was made up of new users since we upgraded to a new website.

But people are also coming back to get their local news from us regularly.

And this is only our local traffic! Not even half of the overall number! So if you’re thinking bigger than Basildon and beyond Billericay, building brand awareness with a larger audience over a wider radius, then contact us to harness the power of advertising your business alongside our local news stories.

In the same two month period, our articles were seen by people all over the UK, and our reach extended as far as France and even to the USA! (Click on the images to zoom in).

Our readers

We’re proud of our traffic statistics and the fact that these numbers are growing. But it’s all a bit impersonal and you’re probably wondering who these people actually are! When you buy ad space on the Yellow Advertiser website, who is actually going to see it?


While Google Analytics isn’t able to see everyone’s demographic data, of the visitors we can track we can see that the bulk of our audience is 25 years old or older, and that we’re particularly popular with 45-54 year olds.

We can also see that our readership is made up of an almost even number of men and women, with men making up just a slightly higher number at 54.3% of the audience, so you can be sure that your ad will be seen by men and women in Essex and the surrounding areas.


Google Analytics is also able to track the interests that some of our website visitors have expressed consistently online. If your business falls into any of these categories then we’re particularly well placed to help you get your business ad seen by the right people.
