BBC News continues as most popular UK website

BBC still most popular websiteBBC still most popular website

The BBC News website continues to head the Mail Online in UK online visitors, according to research compiled for Press Gazette.

The data was compiled following a survey of 50,00 people who accessed the internet at either their office or work computers, which tends to deliver lower ABC figures.

According to Nielsen, the BBC News website attracted just under 10 million UK unique readers/viewers in July – well ahead of Mail Online on 6.645m over the course of the month.

Web portal Yahoo’s news service was the top-placed web-only player with 4.1m monthly users.

Despite being behind paywalls The Times and Sunday Times attracted some 1.2m readers over the course of the month, according to the Nielsen data.

Huffington Post UK – which only launched at the beginning of July – has yet to figure in the Nielsen data.
