THOUSANDS more people have been reading The Press’s website over the past year than ever before, new figures have shown.
The latest ABC online circulation figures show that in the first six months of this year, an average of 28,049 people a day visited thepress.co.uk
The figure represents an increase of 17.1 per cent over the past 12 months, from 23,949 in the same period last year.
The monthly average figure also rose, from 417,370 unique readers in the first six months of last year to 456,730 in the same period this year – a rise of 9.4 per cent.
Across the network of The Press owners Newsquest as a whole, the daily and monthly figures rose by 28.9 and 24.6 per cent respectively.
A daily average of 643,836 unique browsers accessed Newsquest’s network of 144 local media brand sites, and the average number of monthly unique browsers during the period increased to 10,877,028.
Roger Green, managing director of digital media for Newsquest, said: “This is the 15th successive audited growth figure for Newsquest and our biggest ever increase in daily growth since we first published an ABC audit in May 2005.
“In June, our network of local media brand websites attracted more than 2.3 million additional monthly unique browsers.
“More than 96 per cent of these were accessing on smartphone and tablet devices.”
In recent months, readers have continued to turn to thepress.co.uk for comprehensive coverage of major stories and also breaking news - such as the storm which caused a lightning strike in York city centre last month.
