The 10% rise in Guardian.co.uk unique browsers from April to May – standing at just over 2m – was not enough to topple Mail Online from its ranking as most read paper online for a fourth month in a row.
Associated Newspapers’ Mail Online saw a 5% increase in its daily unique browsers to 2.39m, while daily unique browsers of Telegraph, which retained its ranking as third, were up 5% on April to 1.67m.
The Mirror Group – with 502,382 average daily unique users – experienced the most significant rise, an increase of almost 15% on its April figures.
Nearly all papers online reported an increase in traffic from last year.
