E&P Ranks Top 30 Newspaper Sites

E&P Ranks Top 30 Newspaper Sites: "Almost two-thirds of the top 30 newspaper Web site list recorded double-digit percent increases in unique traffic in July, according to the latest data from Nielsen Online.

The standout in that month: Ottaway Newspapers -- the community news arm of Dow Jones once up for sale by News Corp. That group of papers, which includes the Cape Cod (Mass.) Times, reported a gain of 167% in unique users year-over-year in July.

The Los Angeles Times grew its monthly unique traffic 66% to 8.7 million due mostly to the earthquake that shook that city at the end of July. LATimes.com went down for short bit not because of damage, but rather because too many people tried to access the site at once.

Below is the list of the top 30 newspaper Web sites provided by Nielsen. The percent change compares July 2008 uniques with July 2007 uniques. Also keep in mind there are several reasons why traffic fluctuates, including news events."

How many do video on a regular schedule? I see the New York Times, the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal all have video offerings. How many of them do live video streaming? www.livenewscameras.com has some newspaper streams but very few.
