Thanks to everyone who was out covering the Wharf to Wharf for the Sentinel
A few notes – we’ve had close to 40,000 page views for Wharf to Wharf coverage.
Monday’s single day traffic was more than 140,000 page views and Sunday’s traffic was close to 100,000, when we’re typically at 80,000 on Sundays, and right around 100,000 on Mondays.
Among highlights online – we had live updates, including photos, video, and twitter posts from throughout the race route as the event was happening. Sports intern Isis Roberts, Internet director Mike Blaesser and freelancer Cameron Moody were among Sentinel staffers sending photos and updates. Isis and Cameron also composed video reports.
The feed also pulled in others using twitter to talk about the race – hundreds of updates, and more than 3,000 people clicked the feed
We had more than 50 photos submitted by viewers along the route and posted them automatically here
Stories were posted throughout the afternoon, by Julie Jag, Isis and Cathy Kelly.
We sent video to the home page, to the live feed and to youtube, getting more than 2,000 video views.
The highlight, though, is Sentinel photographer Shmuel Thaler’s slide show, which has received about 3,500 page views.
