TodayShow.com Has a Record January

Today_2.4.jpgTodayShow.com, the Website of NBC’s Today show, had its best month ever in January, with more than 150 million page views. The previous record of 133 million was set last August during Beijing Olympics coverage.

The inauguration helped deliver many of the 154,432,093 page views in January, but a series on the American Kennel Club’s best dog breeds was the #1 story. The pooches were prominently featured on the MSN homepage giving it 29,457,927 page views.

Some of the other top stories include a slideshow on Michelle Obama‘s style (7,574,068), top dog and cat names of 2008 (4,443,719) and an ambush makeover, “From frumpy to foxy” (4,005,730).
