UKIP, Social media and the election

Fascinating chart coming out of google on the prevalence of interest in party names through goggle searches.

At least online UKIP are by no means also rans in this election. Indeed this is looking a little like the Euros, though at a different and lower level.

Both those are via google,

Whereas this comparison of part website hits is via Compete

The trend is that UKIP are taking the online fight to the establishment parties. And given bthe resources at our disposal we are punching well above our weight.

Why? Perhaps because we offer a vision that is distinctive and speaks to the difficult, independent, brash, and proud beating heart of our country. We are nobodies fools, nobodies poodles, nobodies slaves. We are freeborn, and plan to stay that way.

If you need any help on anything to do with social media or technology, just leave me a reply (I do various web things professionally).

Many institutions limit access to their online information. Making this information available will be an asset to all.
