Last month Yahoo Music opened up its artist pages to third-party music services like Pandora, Last.fm and iTunes; and early results are impressive. According to Yahoo Music chief Michael Spiegelman in April artist pages, which represent about 37% of overall page views, saw:
- daily unique visitors double
- page views tripled
- visitors reaching the pages through search engines up 108%
- page views per user increased 40%
Traffic at Yahoo Music overall was up 13% in April, to 20.5 million unique visitors. Impressive, but still far behind AOL Music which logged 28 million unique visitors in April.
