Patch, AOL’s network of hyper local news sites, enjoyed May quite a bit. According to a press release, last month brought record amounts of traffic and revenue to the venture. A quick breakdown of Patch’s May numbers:

  • ComScore says 11.7 million people visited Patch during the month, an 11 percent increase over its previous high of 10.6 million
  • Total revenue was 14 percent higher than the previous record, set in November of 2011
