BNP online presence

I am not supporting the BNP in any way.

The Question Time appearance of Nick Griffin has increased traffic to their site massively. In the weeks surrounding the show reach went as high as 0.3% of global traffic (alexa).

Interestingly their reach is higher than that of the three main political parties, even outside the QT period.

The profile from alexa shows that the visitors are mainly middle and retired men with either very low or high education (journalists).

Google Insight reveals that BNP has surpassed Labour as a search term as well. However not as much as the difference in reach - which suggests that many visit the BNP site directly.

Many BNP visitors also visit which is a US White supremacist forum.
