Intermarkets, Inc., a full-service digital advertising firm, announced today that the Drudge Report set an all-time record of 1 billion page views. Intermarkets is the exclusive ad sales representative for the Drudge Report.

The Drudge Report is published by Matt Drudge who established himself as an early pioneer on the web by covering news and events that the mainstream media ignored. The Drudge Report engages millions of people every day as an online source of top news stories and current events. Its monthly numbers reflect that it is a primary source of breaking news for the public as well as local and national media, political influencers, and opinion leaders.

“With only seven weeks before the 2012 Presidential Elections, the Drudge Report is a much sought-after online resource for readers interested in unbiased news. Political campaigns, issue advocacies, and advertising agencies are particularly interested in reaching Drudge Report readers,” said Intermarkets Chief Operating Officer Will Trommelen. “Election Day 2008 proved to be one of the biggest one-day draws for visitors to the Drudge Report. We’re preparing for a similar record-breaking event on November 6, 2012.”

The Drudge Report’s influence and growth has been acknowledged in OMMA’s 2011 Top 100 Most Important Online Publishers and Quantcast’s 2012 Top 100 Sites on the Internet.
