More self-congratulations - well, not really
If May had been a couple of hours longer, it would have been the first month in which the Ministry received 92,000 hits by 40,000 visitors (91,941/39,857).
I'd be impressed, if it wasn't for the StumbleUpon effect: May included two brief spikes of mass-referrals to a single page, which masked 'real' visitor activity elsewhere on the site. On the worst day (by far...), that one page accounted for ~4,000 hits (of 6,846), which means ~2,000 of that day's visitors were sent here by referrer software rather than actually choosing to visit.
