The Guildford Dragon NEWS is an online newspaper first published in March 2012. It can be found at: http://www.guildford-dragon.com.
Our aim is to provide news about our town and borough reported by those who live in the borough with good local knowledge.
We attract nearly 20,000 unique users and around 75,000 page views per month and about ten reader comments per day, which are all moderated. We have 3,500 Twitter followers and over 400 readers who receive email alerts.
We currently publish around six articles a day covering: general news, local politics, opinion, stage and screen reviews, local nature, local history, business news, notices and some sport. Our news archive now contains 6,000 articles.
We have been favourably referred to in Private Eye for the coverage of our local council.
Although we generate a couple of hundred pounds of advertising revenue per month, we have not managed to become commercially viable and our writers are volunteers, including student reporters gaining work experience. Medium- and long-term sustainability is our major concern.
