Top 30 Most Popular Newspaper Web Sites in June Named

By: E&P Staff

The New York Times, once again, tops the list of newspaper Web site traffic in June, according to data from Nielsen//NetRatings. There was a slight change in positions, with The Boston Globe beating out The Wall Street Journal for the No. 5 slot in June. In May, the Journal was No. 5 in terms of traffic.

The Journal?s sister publications, Ottaway newspapers, climbed in the June rankings to No. 12 from No. 27 in May.

The alternative weekly chain Village Voice Media, as well as the Detroit Free Press and the Detroit News, also made an appearance in the top 30 in June.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution lost its grip on the highest time spent per person of the top 30 ranked newspapers. That honor goes the New York Times, though its average slipped in June to about 27 minutes from about 29 minutes in May.

Below is the list of the top 30 newspaper Web sites for June from Nielsen//Net Ratings (owned by E&P?s parent, The Nielsen Co.)
