War traffic jam VIII
Monday, April 7th, 2003
E&P reports: “After seeing a spike in audience the week the Iraq war started (March 19), many news sites saw steep declines in the week ending March 30. USAToday.com was down 17% among users at home and 16% among users at work, according to Nielsen//NetRatings. Washingtonpost.com lost 11% of its audience at home and 5% of its audience at work from the previous week. NYTimes.com held on to its users at home, more or less, but slipped 2% among those at work.” Meanwhile, Command-Post and Glenn Reynolds are steaming to new highes. In its first week, CP’s daily high was 140,000 page views. Last week, the high was 160,000. And it looks like that high will get beaten today by 10 or 20%.
