(NASDAQ: LOCM), a leading online local media company, today announced record organic and mobile search traffic for the fourth quarter 2012.
The company reached organic traffic of 45 million monthly unique visitors (MUVs) during the fourth quarter, up 51 percent from 30 million MUVs during the year ago period.
Mobile traffic also continued to grow, representing 25 million MUVs during the fourth quarter 2012, up 220 percent from 8 million MUVs during the year ago period.
"Organic and mobile traffic growth both continue to be key performance indicators for our business and these records represent large milestones for us,” said Carlos Caponera, Local Corporation, senior director, consumer properties. "We are making significant progress in growing our ecosystem by driving increased traffic from both organic and mobile sources.”
All site traffic and usage statistics are from third-party service providers engaged by the company. Quarterly MUV traffic is equal to the aggregate of each month's MUV traffic numbers in that quarter. Traffic and the company’s monetization of that traffic combine to determine its revenues for any given period. The company’s traffic volume alone for a period should not be viewed as demonstrative of its financial results for such period.
