It looks like GMA News Online’s re-design is well worth it. And it’s mostly thanks to the ongoing “AlDub” fever.
The site’s showbiz section has amassed a total of 16 million page views in just a single week driven by the high demand for content on the phenomenal love team of Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza a.k.a. Yaya Dub. There hasn’t been a break in netizens’ interest over Eat Bulaga’s much-anticipated “Kalye-serye.”
Those who are on-the-go still follow the “will-they-ever-meet” love story that has been sweeping the nation, and have expressed delight over www.gmanetwork.com’s mobile-friendly design.
As it turns out, not only is the network’s online portal benefiting from the AlDub phenomenon, but those who continue to tweet or post anything about the “Kalye-serye” are thrilled to amass likes and followers in amazing number.
“I’m almost about to hit 10K [ten thousand] followers on my Instagram just because of my AlDub posts,” said a showbiz insider to The Manila Times. “It’s really unbelievable.”
