Last week’s officers-down event spiked area’s news organization websites

In case you wondered.  Last week's dramatic events involving a chase of a felon who shot two Spokane deputies was a big deal with area online news companies.

We asked how much those events affected the companies' news sites.

Here's what we learned, based on self-reported numbers. (We don't subscribe to the tracker sites that can scoop recent data, for a fairly high fee.)

KXLY.com reported an 83 percent spike in unique visitors for that Tuesday, compared with other Tuesday.

KHQ.com (also owned by the same company that owns The Spokesman-Review) reported a 9 percent total spike in unique visitors, over the Tuesday site average.

Spokesman.com reported a 12 percent hike in unique visitors above the Tuesday daily average.

KREM did not respond to an invitation to provide numbers.
