Kenyan infotainment site Ghafla has announced a milestone, accumulating over 500,000 visitors and two million page views in January alone and earning a place in the list of the most visited sites in the country.
According to Alexa.com, the site is positioned nineteenth in the country, in a list that includes non-Kenyan giant sites such as Google, Facebook, Windows Live, YouTube, Twitter and LinkedIn.
The site is positioned at number five in local content. According to Google Analytics, over 516,280 people read the website between January 4 and February 4, giving the site almost 2.8 million page views, almost a million more from the previous month.
These latest statistics puts the website near the top of the list of entertainment websites in Kenya. Standard and Nation Media boast almost one million monthly visitors, establishing them as the most read websites in Kenya.
This is a huge milestone for Ghafla, which began as a lyrics hub for local and international music. The site then shifted its focus to include entertainment news, which has carved it a niche in the Kenyan cyberspace.
